In a brand new interview with May The Rock Be With You, former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach spoke about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the long-awaited follow-up to his 2014 solo album, “Give ‘Em Hell” . “We are currently in the demo material, songwriting, gathering [ideas as] part of making a record,” he said. “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.”
Bach added that he is “not in a hurry or in a rush” to release a new studio record. “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 & Screaming’ , ‘Give ‘Em Hell’ , not to mention ‘ABachalypse Now’ and ‘Bring ‘Em Bach Alive’ ,” he said. “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 MÖTLEY CRÜE ; they’re all L.A. bands, I want to make a Sebastian L.A. record; that’s what I’m trying to do.”
Bach said in a 2015 interview that he was “really dying to make a record that sounds like the records of the ’70s that I always listened to.” He told the “Iron City Rocks” podcast: “What I mean [by that] is recording it in a way that… Like, when I listen to ‘Women And Children First’ by VAN HALEN , the guitar’s all the way on the left, and the vocals are in the middle, with the drums who knows where, and it’s just very different sounding, recording-wise, than the way albums are made today. So I think the next time I make an album, that’s really what I’m gonna be going for.”
He continued: “ BLACK SABBATH ‘s ’13’ sounds like a ’70s BLACK SABBATH album, as much as it could in 2014. So whatever the fuck they were doing, I just would love to have an album of mine that sounds like that.
