Los Angeles, CA based bassist Kevin Chown (CHAD SMITH’S BOMBASTIC MEATBATS, COSMOSQUAD, PAUL GILBERT) has announced that he will be joining former SKID ROW vocalist SEBASTIAN BACH for a fall tour of the U.S. after a 9-year stint with Finnish artist TARJA TURUNEN.

“I’m really looking forward to joining Sebastian and his band once again.  He is a good friend and life with Bas is always an adventure.  And working with Bobby (Jarzombek) and Brent (Woods) is working with the best of the best.  It’ll be nice to finally be doing a U.S. tour again after spending years overseas with TARJA. We’ll be playing the first SKID ROW record in its entirety which I’m sure the fans are gonna totally dig. I’m jumping aboard October 10 in Ramona, CA and finish out the tour from there, ending in Florida in early November.

Interview w/ Kevin in Ethereal Metal Webzine


Check out this great new interview Kevin did with Ethereal Metal Webzine about touring, recording, and not allowing Epilepsy to interfere with the music.

Hello Kevin, thanks for doing this interview with us. In September 2018 Tarja finally made it back the the states. I was cheering you guys on in NYC. How did the shows go in the States?

"It was great to finally do some shows in the USA after 8 full years seeing the rest of the world with all my crazy friends. The shows went well. It was interesting seeing the contrast between the international audiences and the one here in the USA. It was totally different perspective on things. It was a pleasure to play all of the shows, NYC especially. That was the best show of the USA tour."

Kevin's episode of Allt för Sverige


Kevin's featured episode of Allt for Sverige has aired in Sweden and now we can watch it here in the US. As Kevin explains, "The story of how my family from Sweden to the USA in the 1800's is a deeply complicated story that I didn't expect. It angered me personally and emotionally. But, it explained so much o why I am who I am: determined! The magic of this show is to tell "the story," in all it's unpleasant details if required, of why people left Sweden and headed to America. I had never before looked at my family's departure from Sweden as being necessary to simply survive. When you look at any immigrant, anywhere in the world, survival of striving for a better life is always the root cause of moving to the other side of the globe. Why would my family be any different? It was wonderful to learn of the difficult struggles they overcame, simply to be given a chance, and to rediscover my roots. I feel blessed to have the life that I do have as a musician. But learning the story of how it all started gave me an even deeper appreciation for just how lucky I am to be alive. And, prouder than ever of my own heritage!" Watch the episode below!
