The vocalist joined the group in April (15) to replace singer Johnny Solinger, who spent 15 years with Skid Row, but Harnell has now announced he is no longer part of the line-up.

In a post on Facebook.com, he writes, "I'm sorry to inform everyone that I'm no longer the lead singer for Skid Row. I thank the fans for their love and support!..."

He followed up the post by assuring fans he was not sacked from his role as frontman, adding, "I was not fired from Skid Row, I quit. Being ignored and disrespected isn't my thing. I had a great time performing with the band and singing so many great songs. I don't regret a thing!"

Original singer Sebastian Bach parted ways with the band in 1996, and they later reformed with Solinger on vocals.
