Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach is set to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band’s iconic second album, “Slave To The Grind”, on a U.S. tour which kicks off in the fall. Bach will apparently perform the album in its entirety at every show on the tour, with exact tour dates to be announced in the days ahead.
Yesterday, Sebastian shared an video of him unboxing the latest vinyl release of “Slave To The Grind”, which came on Record Store Day in 2020, and he included the following message: “30 years ago today the album ‘Slave To The Grind’ became the very first heavy metal album in history to debut at number one on the Billboard album chart. My father was commissioned by Atlantic Records to create and paint the cover for the album which I have had on my wall for 30 years now.
“Here’s a video unboxing the latest vinyl release of ‘Slave To The Grind’ which came out last Record Store Day in 2020. Maybe one day we can come together as a band and give the fans what they deserve which is a proper release from the master original tapes. Until that time see if you can find an original pressing of the record but they are not easy to find.
“How ironic is it that Michael Wagener the producer of ‘Slave To The Grind’ announces his retirement the same year some complete strangers take over our record and do whatever they want without any of our say or knowledge. Oh well that’s showbiz I guess.
“Anyways get ready for the ‘Slave To The Grind’ 30th Anniversary Tour starting this October in the United States! Details TBA get ready to rock mother Truckers!!!”
