Sebastian Bach releases official music video for new single ‘(Hold On) To The Dream’

Author Benedetta Baldin - 24.4.2024

Singer, songwriter, author, Broadway star, and actor Sebastian Bach has released a video for (Hold On) To The Dream, the latest single from his forthcoming album “Child Within The Man” out May 10 on Reigning Phoenix Music. 

Watch the (Hold On) To The Dream” video HERE

Sebastian penned the lyrics for (Hold On) To The Dream” and he and producer Elvis Baskette wrote the melody; music is by Devin Bronson, Isaac Carpenter and Baskette.

If someone asked me to play the heaviest song I have ever recorded, in my 35 year career, I would play them ‘(Hold On) To The Dream,’” SEBASTIAN says.  “This song is an homage to two of my favorite things: classic METAL of the ’70s and also YACHT ROCK as well! Hence the new term YACHT METAL! I have never heard a song quite like ‘(Hold On)To The Dream’ where the crushing verse combined with the luxurious chest-hair harmonies of the chorus. I have tried to incorporate every tone of my voice into this song. For those of you keeping score, I can tell you that my voice hits some of the highest notes of my career in ‘(Hold On) To The Dream!’ HOLD ON TO YOUR SEATS!!! CAUTION: this is a MONSTER JAM!

“Child Within The Man” was recorded in Orlando, Florida; produced and mixed by Baskette; engineered by Jef Moll, assistant engineered by Josh Saldate and mastered by Robert Ludwig/Gateway Mastering.  Bach wrote or co-wrote all the album’s 11 tracks and sang all lead and backing vocals.  “Child Within The Man” features guest appearances from John 5Steve Stevens, and Orianthi—who all co-wrote their respective tracks with Bach—and two tracks co-written with Myles Kennedy (‘What Do I Got to Lose?’ and To Live Again); Devin Bronson on guitars, Todd Kerns (bass) and Jeremy Coulson (drums) round out the players on the album.

The album will be available on CD (Jewelcase), cassette and double LP in a variety of color options.  Pre-save the album HERE

The album artwork holds special meaning since it was designed by Bach’s father, noted visual artist David Bierk.  “This album artwork was started in 1978 and finished in 2024!” Sebastian says.

“Child Within The Man” track listing is as follows:
Everybody Bleeds
Freedom (featuring John 5)
(Hold On) To The Dream
What Do I Got to Lose?
Hard Darkness
Future of Youth (featuring Orianthi)
F.U. (featuring Steve Stevens)
Crucify Me

To Live Again

Later this week, Bach will kick off the “What Do I Got To Lose?” Tour, a mix of solo gigs and festival appearances that kicks off with an international run of performances in Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile before North American shows in the U.S. and Mexico.  The stateside tour (which coincides with the album’s release) gets underway May 10 in Jefferson, LA before wrapping June 29 in San Diego, CA.  Click HERE for all ticketing info and to purchase tickets.

About Sebastian Bach

With an inimitable presence as loud as his instantly identifiable voice, Sebastian Bach has left a San Andreas Fault-size imprint on music, theater, film, television, and culture. Moreover, his influence only continues to magnify. He has penned and voiced some of the most iconic anthems in rock history, crafting a catalog highlighted by generational hits such as ’18 And Life,’ ‘I Remember You,’ ‘Youth Gone Wild,’ ‘Slave To The Grind,”Wasted Time,’ and Monkey Business,’ to name a few. He has made history as “the first heavy metal singer on Broadway” with a now legendary turn in “Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical” in addition to leading roles in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and “Jesus Christ Superstar.” He has appeared in dozens of television series and films, ranging from “Trailer Park Boys” and “Robot Chicken” to “Spongebob Squarepants,” “The Masked Singer,” and “Hell’s Kitchen.” Speaking to his versatility, he’s the rare force of nature who can duet with Axl Rose and reprise a seven-season recurring role on “Gilmore Girls.”
