SEBASTIAN BACH's New Solo Album Is 'Shaping Up To Be A Kick In The Ass'

Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach is about to sign a new record deal for his upcoming solo album. The disc, which is not expected to arrive before late 2019 at the earliest, will feature contributions from several well-known guitarists, including John 5 (ROB ZOMBIE, MARILYN MANSON), Steve Stevens (BILLY IDOL) and Orianthi (ALICE COOPER).

Earlier today, Bach wrote on his Facebook page: "The internet is neat to send ideas back and forth for musicians to see how they sound. But there is no replacing getting players in a room, together, bashing out ideas and getting some real human chemistry going. This is how we created the albums 'Skid Row', 'Slave to the Grind' & 'Angel Down', and this is how we are creating my new record. I could not be happier with the results!!

"I am so fortunate to be surrounded by the best musicians on the planet. We now have at least eight songs on the go for the next album. The players on the next album will include, once again, John 5, Steve Stevens, & Devin Bronson, also Orianthi, Brent Woods, & Eli Santana on guitars. These are the people I have been writing with and this album is shaping up to be a kick in the ass for sure. Yesterday's session was so much fun with Orianthi, what a talented guitar player and writer she fit right into the band! Jeremy Colson on drums is an absolute animal and figuring out parts with him is fun easy creative and the energy on these tracks = music that you can FEEL!

"We are about to sign the new record deal and could not be more excited!! New label info TBA very soon!! New Bach album coming your way!! #BachInStudio #demos"

Last year, Bach told Meltdown of Detroit's WRIF 101.1 FM radio station that he would ink a deal with a U.S.-based heavy metal record label that would help him make a "career-defining" new solo album.

Bach hasn't released a full-length disc since "Give 'Em Hell", which came out in 2014. Like its predecessor, 2011's "Kicking & Screaming", the disc was released through Frontiers Music Srl, the Italian label which specializes in what's commonly called AOR, a term that once signified a popular radio format ("album-oriented rock") but nowadays applies to acts whose airplay is marginal.

Although Bach had said in some of his interviews that his next record would be less musically aggressive and it would be "more uplifting and fun," he told WRIF that he has had a change of heart.

"Well, before [the new record deal] happened, I was thinking of doing more of an acoustic-based record because I've done a lot of solo records," he said. "I've done 'Angel Down', which I'm very proud of that album,. Then 'Kicking & Screaming', which is a great album. 'Give 'Em Hell'… Not to mention 'ABachalypse Now', which is a three-record set. 'Forever Wild' DVD, 'Bring 'Em Bach Alive!'… I've put out a lot of records. And putting out the last one, when I put so much time and effort into it and it doesn't get the attention that it deserves, for me as an artist, I'm, like, 'Fuck!' So I was, like, you know what? If I'm gonna put out another heavy metal, hard rock album, I need help. I need a company around me that's gonna put the same kind of attention and time and effort into it as I am. So now that looks like it's happening. So now I'm changing the way I'm looking at things."
