Sebastian Bach states next solo record will be “more vocal oriented”
Ex-Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach was recently interviewed by May The Rock Be With You and spoke about his plans for his next solo album.
Bach stated: “We are currently in the demo material, song writing, gathering part of making a record. My manager Rick Sales has said “Sebastian, now is the time” and he has many different record labels that he is speaking to, so that’s what I’m doing and I’m not in a hurry or in a rush I feel that I’ve put out a lot of good albums in my solo career and I think they’re all heavy metal records it’s safe to say; ‘Angel Down’, ‘Kicking and Screaming’, ‘Give ‘Em Hell’, not to mention ‘ABachalypse Now’ and ‘Bring ‘Em Bach Alive’ *laughs* I’ve released a lot, so my next record is gonna be a different direction, more vocal oriented, I want to make a California record like The Doors did, and Van Halen did, and The Eagles did, and Motley Crue, they’re all LA bands, I want to make a Sebastian LA record that’s what I’m trying to do.”
Bach also answered what was the biggest challenge in writing his autobiography 18 And Life On Skid Row as he stated: “Remembering everything in detail because the times I was writing about were obviously before the internet existed so I couldn’t like you know, I didn’t have records really, I had to remember all of that stuff *laughs* so I would have to have complete silence, kick my kids out of the house *laughs* and it’s like I can’t do it if there’s noise, I have to really reach back into the memory banks so that was a challenge. Also just the size of a book is a challenge, 450 pages is a lot of words to get right you know what I’m saying? It’s hours and hours and weeks and months and years of sitting in front of your computer and just staring at the screen trying to make something that somebody would want to read *laughs*. The reaction to the book has been far better than I could ever have imagined, the sales are incredible and it’s been released in a bunch of countries and been translated into Portuguese to be put out in Brazil which is crazy and Sweden and Finland so it’s pretty amazing. I’ve never been able to speak Portuguese to my fans in Brazil but they’re going to translate my book *laughs* so it’s gonna be like the whole country is gonna learn about me like they never did before because it’s in their language, so that’s pretty mind blowing.”
