Solo artist and former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach has confirmed that acclaimed drummer Bobby Jarzombek (Halford, Riot, Fates Warning) has finished laying down drum tracks for 12 new songs from Bach’s new solo album. The CD is being recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Bob Marlette.
The guitars on this new album will be performed by Devin Bronson (Avril Lavigne, Pink) and Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), with extra songwriting contributions from guitarist John 5 (Rob Zombie). Bassist Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) will also be making a guest appearance on the CD.
A short video message by Bach from the studio can be seen below. Bach says, “We have a special bass player playing on this record, but we’re not allowed to say who it is yet, because he’s so important. But every one of you know who he is. And stay tuned for the announcement on who’s playing the bass in your face.”
Bach previously stated about his new material, “It is going to be balls-out, kick-ass rock ‘n’ roll with tons of vocal histrionics and harmonies especially… I am going to really concentrate on harmonies and pushing my voice to the maximum you have ever heard it pushed. The riffs are crazy and cool.”
When asked on ‘The Classic Metal Show’ if he felt that his 2011 album “Kicking & Screaming” got enough credit from the rock community and fans, Bach responded, “Yeah. To be on the Billboard chart again is enough credit for me. I like being on the chart. It’s cool that I can put out an album that competes on the charts in this day and age.
He added, “I’m not trying to remind anybody of the past; that’s the opposite of what I’m trying to do. I never was doing that.
“I don’t understand the nostalgia factor of rock and roll fans at all. When SKID ROW came out in 1989, we weren’t singing songs that were 20 years old, we were singing songs that we just wrote. That’s what I’m doing today; that’s what I was doing then. So I don’t get that whole idea at all.”
