Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach has issued the following update:
"Well, it's official: life is incredible! I told the audience from the stage last year that we would be back in Australia with GUNS N' ROSES, and I hate to say 'I told you so,' but.... I told you so!!! Right on! To say we are excited is an understatement!!!! Playing the biggest places there are to play all over Australia with the biggest band ever! Playing for the second time with my childhood idols ROSE TATTOO! Playing/checking out Perth for the first time in my life! Of course, those of you Down Under remember the tour in 1993 with all of us ... here we are 14 years later still crankin'!!!!!! SEE YA SOON, AUSTRALIA! Fuck, I love saying that!!! Hopefully my drummer won't pull my pants down in front of 100,000 people this time! You had to be there..."

In a recent interview with Rock My Monkey, Bach stated about the upcoming CD, "There's been a lot of stuff on the record about… kind of the war was on my mind, having the country at war, and also having a nineteen-year-old son. It's kind of what the youth of America have in the back of their mind. Are they going to get drafted? It very well could happen. It's a scary thing. So that was kind of on my mind when I was writing the lyrics for this record."
