In a recent interview with Emma Jaye of Screamer Magazine, former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach once again expressed optimism regarding a possible reunion with his former bandmates. Addressing persistent rumors about discord within the band, Bach clarified:

“There’s a whole narrative that we don’t get along, or they don’t wanna get in the same room as me. There’s stuff that I have found out recently on the business side that I can tell the planet Earth this has nothing to do with what happened in ’96, or me being wild or us not getting along. This right now is a hundred percent a business thing. And I found some shit out that’s true. The only thing standing in our way is the business side of this. I can’t give you all the details, but it’s not about us not getting along. It’s about us figuring out how to make this work on the business side. And hopefully we can figure it out. I’m ready to figure it out, but the whole narrative of ‘oh, they don’t like him and he’s too crazy,’ that’s not even true.”

In addition to discussing the potential SKID ROW reunion, Bach also offered insights into his forthcoming solo album, “Child Within The Man,” slated for release on May 10 via Reigning Phoenix Music. Describing the musical direction, he remarked:

“I don’t want to make the exact same record over and over and over, but I guarantee you that if you like the first SKID ROW album and if you like ‘Slave To The Grind,’ you will like ‘Child Within The Man’. It’s impossible not to, because I have a different bass player and I have a different drummer, and no disrespect to anybody, but I do the same thing as a vocalist. So, it’s kind of like WHITE ZOMBIE and ROB ZOMBIE; is there really a big difference?”

Bach concluded by expressing his openness to the idea of reuniting with his former bandmates to create new music. He emphasized:

“Having said that, I would love one day to get back together with the old band and make new music. I am not cutting that off or putting that down in any way. I would love to do that someday, but this album is the next album in my catalog, which includes the albums I did with SKID ROW because I do the same thing.”
