Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach is hard at work in the studio under the direction of producer Bob Marlette (ROB ZOMBIE, BLACK SABBATH, SHINEDOWN) recording the follow-up to the acclaimed "Kicking & Screaming" album. The new effort will tentatively be released in the spring of 2014 via Frontiers Records.
Sebastian managed to involve in the writing and recording some very special friends and guest stars, including none other than Duff McKagan (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES), and not one but two top-class guitar players: John 5 (MARILYN MANSON, ROB ZOMBIE) and Steve Stevens (BILLY IDOL). Rounding out the lineup on the CD are Devin Bronson (AVRIL LAVIGNE, PINK) on guitar and Bobby Jarzombek (HALFORD, RIOT, FATES WARNING) on drums. Duff and Sebastian previously collaborated on Duff's solo album "Believe In Me".
Of his forthcoming CD, Bach says: "I am happy to say we have completed the drums and most of the bass guitar for the new record.
"It is a pleasure to write songs with Duff, Steve, Bob and Devin.
"The album will be mastered by Tom Baker, who has mastered my last three albums.
"This CD will be balls-out, in-your-face, high-energy rock 'n' roll which just so happens to be my favorite style of music.
"I look forward to releasing the record and playing these songs live for you all in 2014!"
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.
