Renowned vocal powerhouse and former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band’s self-titled breakout debut
Released in the winter of 1989, Skid Row’s record is one of heavy metal’s most successful debut albums, landing in Billboard’s Top 10 and going on to sell millions of copies around the world. The record transformed the band from local New Jersey quintet into a global phenomenon whose rebellious attitude and jaw-dropping talent set the tone for rock music in the late ’80s and early ’90s. Skid Row’s singles, “18 and Life,” “Youth Gone Wild,” and “I Remember You” are among the decade’s most recognizable rock anthems, still receiving heavy airplay on radio stations across the country.
Bach said, “In 1989 we put out the first record, Skid Row. 30 years later, people still dig the music we created in a garage all those years ago. In commemoration of this 30th Anniversary digital deluxe release, my band is going to perform the first Skid Row record in its entirety, on the road, LIVE this fall! It’s going to be fun to do something that has never been done live before!”
Since his departure from Skid Row in the mid ’90s, Bach remains one of the most relevant rock figures in pop culture today, with over 20 million records sold, three solo records, network television appearances, guest spots on Gilmore Girls, Trailer Park Boys, Californication and other popular television shows, and several acting stints on and off Broadway. Bach’s last album, Give ‘Em Hell, impressively, landed on the U.S. Top Hard Rock and Top 200 Billboard charts, proving his prowess decades after his initial debut.
