Fan-filmed video footage of Sebastian Bach’s July 12 performance at The Concert Pub North in Houston, Texas can be seen below.
Bach is continuing to tour in support of his latest solo album, “Give ‘Em Hell”, which was released on April 22, 2014 via Frontiers Records.
Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, has set a January 19, 2016 release date for Bach’s much-anticipated autobiography, “18 And Life On Skid Row”.
Asked if he has commenced the songwriting process for the follow-up to his latest solo album, 2014’s “Give ‘Em Hell”, Bach told Metal Wani: “Honestly, I have two songs that I would sing to right now. One was written by [GUNS N’ ROSES and SIXX: A.M. guitarist] D.J. Ashba, and it’s an incredible tune, and the other song is one by Devin [Bronson, guitarist for Bach’s solo band]. But I am not thinking about making a record right now. I’ve put out ‘Angel Down’ , ‘Kicking & Screaming’ , ‘Give ‘Em Hell’… not to mention [the] ‘ABachalypse Now’ [CD/DVD package from 2013]. I’ve put out so much stuff that I feel like I’ve made a lot of solo records, and people have gotta catch up with me a little bit. I’ve made a lot of solo records, and my fans love ‘em, but I don’t think they realize how much time and effort and money and attention to detail and everything is on those records; my whole heart and soul is on there. And it takes so much of your essence and spirit. And to make that happen… Like, to make a record is… People don’t get it. You don’t just walk in there and make records. It’s like this whole crazy process that takes years; ‘Give ‘Em Hell’ took two years [to make]. So people say, ‘Are you doing a new record?’ I mean, I will… I definitely will some day — a hundred percent. It’s just… I don’t think people really get how much it takes to make a record that’s good. They don’t understand.”
He continued: “To be honest, I’ve gotta recharge my batteries a little bit. I have given everything I have. I am so exhausted — not from [performing] tonight — [but] from thirty years of this. I’m gonna admit to you: I need to recharge my shit in order to make a record that is as good as that record. But I will do a record some day.”
Bach went on to say: “I’m telling you, fans: go buy the [albums] I already did. Not that I’m complaining or anything, [but] I’m saying, it’s gonna be a while before you get a new record from me. I’m not gonna rush it.”
