Prolific Halestorm leader Lzzy Hale is a heavy-metal workaholic, seemingly always willing to lend some support to her friends, whether onstage or in the studio. A real slave to the grind, if you will. With that in mind, the rocker has just announced she'll be temporarily joining Skid Row as their lead vocalist for an upcoming round of U.S. dates.

The fill-in spot was announced over social media today (March 27th), with a statement explaining that Erik Grönwall, who'd joined Skid Row in 2022, is stepping away from the stage to focus on treatment for a leukemia diagnosis.

"I love Skid Row, I have nothing but respect for the guys in the band but I love and respect my health more," he explained. "I'm getting stronger and healthier every day but after consulting my doctor I need to allow myself more time to recover, which I can't do as the lead singer of Skid Row. That's why I have reached the tough decision to move on."

Since Grönwall's leaving to prioritize his health and recovery, Skid Row reached out to Hale to handle a four-show run of U.S. spring dates between Carterville, Illionois, and Sacramento.

"What an honor to call [Skid Row] my friends and a privilege to be sharing the stage with them! Erik, I wish you all the magic on your next adventure," Hale added in an Instagram post, quipping of playing with the 18-and-lifers "Now… which leather pants to wear?!!"

Keep in mind that Hale is still hoisting her guitar for Halestorm. That's not going to change. The band will continue promoting 2022's Back from the Dead this summer on their previously announced joint tour with I Prevail.

You'll find Grönwall's full statement, and tour dates for both treks, down below.
