HIP Video Promo has just uploaded an early 2008 interview with former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach spliced with footage from his video "(Love Is) A Bitchslap". Watch the five-minute clip below. Also available is professionally filmed video footage of Sebastian Bach and his solo band performing the song "By Your Side" at the Udo Music Festival, which was held July 21-22, 2006 at Fuji Speedway in Mt. Fuji, Japan. The clip is believed to have been part of an Udo Music Festival 2006 special which originally aired on Japan's Fuji TV in September 2006. Other acts that performed at the two-day festival included KISS, ALICE IN CHAINS (with a special guest appearance by Bach on "Man in the Box"), DRAMAGODS (featuring former EXTREME guitarist Nuno Bettencourt and PAUL RODGERS.
Bach recently revealed plans to release two full-length albums in 2009. He wrote in a message that was sent out via his official newsletter, dubbed the "Daily DeBachle", "One will be the CD I am working on with Jeffrey Steele and Vicky McGehee, the team that brought you 'Battle with the Bottle' [the song Bach sang on CMT's hit series, 'Gone Country']. The other CD will be a straight-up, hard-ass rocker, the follow-up to 'Angel Down'. I plan on writing this record with my band, Roy Z ['Angel Down' producer who has worked with JUDAS PRIEST, BRUCE DICKINSON, HALFORD and HELLOWEEN] hopefully, and definitely Jamey Jasta of the band HATEBREED. Jamey and I are getting together [in January 2009] to record some demos. I am not going to make a HATEBREED record, I am going to work on material with Jamey that will be heavy and anthemic but still make sense next to the other CDs I have done. I am also planning on releasing a new DVD in 2009. Can't go into the details quite yet, but there will be more high-quality live DVD material coming your way this year, a la 'Roadrage'. Looks like I will be starting work on the new DVD this month.
"Don't get confused by me doing a 'country' album and a 'rock' album at the same time. I have always hated labels. What I have learned over my lifetime is, I don't make decisions for my voice, my voice makes decisions for me. I have to get out of the way of my own voice so it can be heard loud and clear. My only objective in making CDs is to make them 'good.' Hopefully these two new CDs will fall into this category!"
Sebastian Bach's "Angel Down" limited-edition CD/DVD package, featuring "Roadrage", a film by Sebastian Bach, was made available in the USA as an FYE exclusive at all FYE stores nationwide and also at the FYE booth on last summer's tour with POISON. "Roadrage" features five tracks, "100% live, pro-shot" on the 2006 North American GUNS N' ROSES/SEBASTIAN BACH tour.
