Former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach hits the road this fall to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the group’s chart-topping second album, Slave of grinding.
Megawatt singer kicks off Slave of grinding trek on September 25 in Waterloo, NY, and will be on the road until December 17 in San Diego, with support from the Detroit Kaleido rockers. Tickets go on sale Friday and can be purchased on the Bach website.
Bach previously commemorated the 30th anniversary of Skid Row’s eponymous debut in 1989 by playing the entire album on tour. He has good reason to celebrate Slave of grinding in the same way. The band’s second LP became the first heavy metal album to debut at No.1 on the Billboard 200 and eventually became double platinum. He found Skid Row stripping away the glam-metal elements of their early days in favor of a full-fledged heavy metal attack, and he solidified their status as one of the greatest hard-rock groups on the dawn of the decade did not last long, thanks to the impending grunge revolution).
In a statement, Bach said his upcoming shows will also include never-before-seen photos of the making of the Slave of grinding album cover. The singer’s father, David Bierk, painted the cover art, inspired by the 1608 painting by Italian artist Caravaggio. Burial of Saint Lucia.
“None of us could believe the day Slave of grinding was released and became the first heavy rock album to debut at No.1 on the Billboard album, âBach said.â The band was naturally ecstatic, as were the record company and everyone involved, as well as my dad and my family. I can’t wait to play Slave of grinding in its entirety in the United States this fall for the 30th anniversary and offers for the first time a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the album cover. “
