"Kicking & Screaming", the first video and title track from former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach's forthcoming album, can be seen at RevolverMag.com. According to a press release, the clip which is one of two videos that the singer filmed on June 28 in Hollywood, California with director Devin DeHaven of Fortress Entertainment (PAPA ROACH, WHITESNAKE, METHOD MAN, TALIB KWELI) shows Bach "in fine form highlighting his inimitable vocal prowess, as well as the bone-crunching riffs and catchy hooks of the single."
Commented Sebastian: "I could not be happier with the video for 'Kicking & Screaming'. Director Devin DeHaven did a great job and this video has a lot of energy and power, just like the song. Plus, this video is FUN! Just what rock 'n' roll is about."
"Kicking & Screaming" will be released 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. A digital single containing the album's title track will precede the full-length effort on August 23.

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!"
