Author Annija Raga - 21.7.2021

The former Skid Row frontman & singer Sebastian Bach has announced that he will dedicate his next tour to celebrating the 30-year anniversary of one of the most classic 80s hard rock albums “Slave to the Grind”, featuring such Skid Row hit songs like “Monkey Business“, “Slave To The Grind“, “Wasted Time” and others.

” 30 years ago, in the year 1991, we released our second record entitled “Slave to the Grind”. This album was a collaborative effort between the band members, written in our basements and rehearsal rooms in New Jersey, shortly after we got off the road for the first record. We had an incredible time coming up with the songs in New Jersey and then bringing in our producer Michael Wagener to help out before we took the whole band and crew down to Gloria Estefan’s New River studios in Fort Lauderdale Florida. We all lived there recording the record and the stories I could tell….”

Skid Row‘s second LP became the first heavy metal album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts, and it also gained a double platinum status. The album to this day stays as one of the fans favorites, so it makes sense that Bach is giving the fans what they want the most!

” None of us could believe the day “Slave to the Grind” came out and became the First heavy Rock album to debut at Number One on the Billboard Album chart. The band were naturally ecstatic, as were the record company and all involved… As well as my father and my family. I look forward to playing “Slave to the Grind” in its entirety in the USA this fall for the 30th Anniversary, and for the first time offer a look behind the scenes into the creation of the album cover artwork. Looking forward to seeing you all on the road in 2021 with Very Special Guests from Detroit Michigan, Kaleido! See you at the show!”
