Rock icons WHITESNAKE are set to return with their 12th studio album this spring…
Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach has issued the following update:
“Ideas are just starting to take shape for the next studio record. The legendary guitarist [and] great friend Steve Stevens [BILLY IDOL] has come up with one track so far that will definitely be on my next record. It is a kick-ass cool rock ‘n’ roll song that I guarantee will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck. Just how I like it. We are going to work on more songs together too. Also my guitar player, Jeff George, has come up with a couple of great ideas that we will also be demoing very soon.
“We are really going to get cracking on the new material right away and have a new studio album out sooner than you think!
“I am so happy to collaborate with Steve; he has always been one of my favorite guitar players! We are going out rock this bitch down to the ground in 2013, mother truckers!”
Bach‘s brand new CD/DVD package, “ABachalypse Now”, will be released in North America on March 26 via Frontiers Records. The “ABachalypse Now” Ultimate CD/DVD Edition includes never-before-seen footage from last year’s Graspop Metal Meeting festival in Dessel, Belgium, the full never-before-seen Hellfest set from France and the fully-remixed and remastered Nokia show from Los Angeles (originally broadcast on AXS TV), as well as bonus music videos. The DVD contains a running time of nearly 160 minutes. “ABachalypse Now” will be available in two configurations: the Ultimate CD/DVD Edition (2 CDs + DVD) and a standalone DVD.
According to Sebastian, “ABachalypse Now” will include “special guest appearances by Jinxx from BLACK VEIL BRIDES, Roy Z (HALFORD), and Brent Woods (VINCE NEIL).”
Bach‘s most recent solo album, “Kicking & Screaming”, sold 6,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 73 on The Billboard 200 chart. The singer’s previous CD, “Angel Down”, opened with 6,400 units back in November 2007 to debut at No. 190.
