SEBASTIAN BACH Says His New Album Cover Is 'As Heavy As Rock 'N' Roll Can Be'

Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach will release his new solo album, "Kicking & Screaming", on September 27 via Frontiers Records. The CD was produced by Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, SHINEDOWN, ATREYU, FILTER) and features young virtuosic guitarist Nick Sterling and drum pro Bobby Jarzombek (HALFORD, RIOT, ICED EARTH). The follow-up to 2007's "Angel Down" was mastered at Precision Mastering in Los Angeles with Tom Baker.

In a brand new posting on Facebook, Bach writes, "Wow, I am SO BLOWN AWAY by the amazing artwork of Richard Villa! I have just approved the album cover of 'Kicking & Screaming' and I am happy to say I have seen the wildest album cover this year... and it's ours, haha!!

"I am so proud of the music on this CD and now I can say I'm equally proud of the cover art.

"So many covers these days are just a headshot and a logo, zzzzzz. The album cover is a lost art and I am so glad Richard Villa knows how to create art that is as heavy as rock 'n' roll can be!! Can't wait for all of you to see it!"

Sebastian previously stated that the "Kicking & Screaming" cover would feature "the hottest model in the land" presumably referring to his new girlfriend, 25-year-old model Minnie Gupta "and reflect the lyrics as well as the brutality of the music. It's gonna be rock 'n' roll to the 9th degree very heavy, cool, trippy and nightmare-ish."

Bach stated about his new solo material, "This CD will follow along the lines of 'Skid Row', 'Slave To The Grind', 'Subhuman Race' and 'Angel Down'. If you like rockin' guitar riffs, high-energy songs and performances, deadly drums of doom, and ear-shattering screams, we got your rock right here!" He also described the songs as "heavy, interesting, classic sounding, modern sounding, completely rock 'n' roll just how we like it!"

Bach and his crew have been keeping busy playing selected tour dates nationwide, including recent appearances at major festivals M3 and Rocklahoma, and will continue to tour throughout the summer. Fans can expect Bach classics, as well as a sneak preview of material from the forthcoming album.
