Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach has issued the following update:
“Work on the new studio album has officially begun!!
“[I had a] totally great day in the studio with producer Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, ALICE COOPER) and guitar player Jeff George!
“We began the day writing and coming up parts and ended up recording some blazing, kick-ass grooves that are gonna destroy the rest of the tunes in your iPhone playlist upon loading! Sorry ’bout that! Not!”
Bach‘s next solo album is tentatively due late 2013/early 2014 viaFrontiers Records.
Asked of he feels his latest album, “Kicking & Screaing”, got enough credit from the rock community and the fans, Bach told “The Classic Metal Show” in a recent interview: “Yeah. To be on the Billboard chart again is enough credit for me. I like being on the chart. It’s cool that I can put out an album that competes on the charts in this day and age.
He added: “I’m not trying to remind anybody of the past; that’s the opposite of what I’m trying to do. I never was doing that.
“I don’t understand the nostalgia factor of rock and roll fans at all. When SKID ROW came out in 1989, we weren’t singing songs that were 20 years old, we were singing songs that we just wrote. That’s what I’m doing today; that’s what I was doing then. So I don’t get that whole idea at all.”
Bach‘s brand new CD/DVD package, “ABachalypse Now”, was 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” was made available in two configurations: the Ultimate CD/DVD Edition (2 CDs + DVD) and a standalone DVD.
