BACH HEADED IN TO STUDIO THIS MONTH FOR SUMMER 2011 RELEASE
Frontiers Records is proud to announce the signing of golden-voiced, iconic rock frontman Sebastian Bach to an exclusive worldwide, multi-album recording contract. Bach will head in to the studio later this month with his new young virtuosic guitarist Nick Sterling to record a brand new album. Producer Bob Marlette (Black Sabbath, Shinedown, Atreyu, Filter) will be at the helm. The album is tentatively scheduled for a summer, 2011 worldwide release.
Sebastian Bach commented, “I would like to sincerely thank all at Frontiers Records for their support and belief in me, my band and the new tunes. Expect an album full of high-energy rock n’ roll with kick-ass clean and clear vocals, along with me laying down the craziest screams I have recorded in my life thus far… To all of the rockers of the world, thank you for letting me create killer music for the past two decades, and all I can say is, we are just warming up mothertruckers!” Frontiers Records President Serafino Perugino added, “We are pleased and honored to be at the service of Sebastian Bach! We look forward to help make his forthcoming album a hard rock milestone!”
Sebastian Bach has sold in excess of 20 million records worldwide as lead singer with his former band, Skid Row and as a solo artist. Far from just being a multi-platinum recording artist, the singer/songwriter/actor/entertainer has expanded his career over the past decade to include episodic television with a 5-season recurring role on the CW’s hit series “Gilmore Girls”, starring roles on Broadway (“Jekyll & Hyde”, “The Ricky Horror Picture Show”) and national touring companies (“Jesus Chris Superstar”), as well as an ongoing relationship with MTV/VH1.
Swedish Rockers Bonafide have just released a new EP. Fill Your Head With Rock – Old, New Tried & True, has two songs from the band’s previous effort Something’s Dripping, plus some cool cover tunes, a new unreleased song, “Kick Me Out”, and the band’s videos “Hard Livin’ Man” and “No Doubt About It”.
I like the shortened version of “Fill Your Head With Rock” as well as “No Doubt About It”. They were amongst my favorites on Something’s Dripping. The real star on this EP is the unreleased song, “Kick Me Out”. This is a fun upbeat AC/DC influenced rocker, and the best song on the EP, in my opinion.
I found it interesting that two of the covers on this EP, “I Don’t Need No Doctor” (Ray Charles) and “I Can’t Explain” (The Who) have already been covered by W.A.S.P. and The Scorpions. For Bonafide to cover these songs, they had better put forward their best effort. Thankfully, that is exactly what Bonafide did. I think Bonafide’s version of “I Don’t Need No Doctor” is even better than the version from W.A.S.P. ‘s classic album, Inside the Electric Circus. I have always loved The Who’s “I Can’t Explain”, and Bonafide does a very good job with their cover.
“Nice Boys Don’t Play Rock ‘N’ Roll” is easily one of the biggest songs of Rose Tattoo’s career. Bonafide does a good job paying homage to Rose Tattoo with their version of this song.
Usually, I am not a big fan of cover tuness, but the cover songs on this EP give you a very good feel as to what Bonafide’s music is all about. If you have never listened to Bonafide before, Fill Your Head With Rock – Old, New, Tried & True is a cool way to discover this kick ass hard rock band.
