Sebastian Bach celebrates the anniversary of the record “Slave to the Grind”

Although he hasn’t performed with the band that made him famous for a long time – Skid Row, their first singer Sebastian Bach does not forget significant anniversaries. That is how he will mark the jubilee in his own way Slave to the Grind 30th Birthday, an American tour that begins this fall. He will be accompanied by the Detroit band Kaleido, and the tickets have already been released.

Thirty years ago, in 1991, we recorded our second album entitled “Slave to the Grind”. It was the result of the joint work of all the members, written in our basement and rehearsal rooms in New Jersey, shortly after we finished the tour on the occasion of the debut album. We had a great time coming up with the songs, then sharing the ideas with our producer Michael Wagener, and then realizing them at Gloria Estefan’s “New River” studio in Florida. We lived there during the filming and I could tell you so many stories…!

We continued to California on the occasion of the final works, proud of the result. I remember driving through Ventura Boulevard. We had a cassette with the single “Monkey Business” which we played over and over again, at four in the morning, returning to the hotel. Music broke down at the time of its creation, and thirty years later it still resists the ravages of time.

Sebastian also referred to the cover of the record, the work of his late father, the artist David Bierk. He announced that during the concert, he would show never-before-disclosed images related to the emergence of the visual concept, revealing that live models were used for the scene shown. They posed in his father’s studio during 1990 and 1991.

None of us could believe that “Slave to the Grind” immediately after its release became the first heavy rock album to top the Billboard charts. We were all naturally elated, Sebastian Bach recalled, saying that he was very much looking forward to the upcoming concerts. Interestingly, his colleagues from the current Skid Row lineup also announced the jubilee celebrations. Bassist Rachel Bolan He pointed out last summer that they plan to perform the entire album on the 2021 tour.
