“An album more than 10 years in the making…”

That’s how singer, songwriter, author, Broadway star, and actor SEBASTIAN BACH describes his new album Child Within The Man set for release on May 10 via Reigning Phoenix Music (RPM). The 11-track album was recorded in Orlando, FL, produced and mixed by Elvis Baskette, engineered by Jef Moll, assistant engineered by Josh Saldate and mastered by Robert Ludwig (Gateway Mastering). BACH wrote or co-wrote all the album’s tracks and sang all lead and backing vocals. Child Within The Man features guest appearances from John 5Steve Stevens and Orianthi – who all co-wrote their respective tracks with BACH – and two tracks co-written with Myles Kennedy (To Live Again and What Do I Got To Lose?); Devin Bronson on guitars, Todd Kerns (bass) and  Jeremy Colson (drums) round out the players on the album. The album will be available as t-shirt bundle, on CD (jewelcase), cassette and double LP in a variety of colour options. Pre-order/pre-save the album below.

Last week also marks the release of SEBASTIAN‘s first-ever lyric performance video for the album’s Everybody Bleeds. The song – with lyrics by BACH – addresses the universal truths of pain with such lines as “Everybody bleeds/Everybody burns/Everybody drowns…”

“I have been putting out records since the year 1989,” SEBASTIAN says. “Thank YOU for 35 years of Bach ‘n’ roll…all leading up to Child Within The Man! If you like the records I have put out in the past, I can GUARANTEE that you will enjoy the new album. THIS is the kind of rock ‘n’ roll that keeps you young! Can’t wait for you all to crank up Child Within The Man – a magical elixir to the fountain of youth! Gone wild! Forever! It’s all one big song! TURN IT UP!”

“The album artwork holds a special meaning since it was designed by BACH‘s father,” noted visual artist David Bierk. “This album artwork was started in 1978 and finished in 2024!” SEBASTIAN says.

BACH adds, “RPM has provided me with the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll fantasy dream come true…to make my ultimate rock ‘n’ roll record! With the team of players and production on this album, I can honestly say we have made the best record that we could possibly make! The packaging is of the highest standard in every way. The vinyl, cd & cassette formats all have been made to exact specifications! The 45RPM double gatefold sleeve vinyl editions come in three eco-formats which are the highest standard of vinyl sound. Plus multicoloured variations including a ‘glow in the dark’ special for all you rock collectors out there!”

About SEBASTIAN BACH

With an inimitable presence as loud as his instantly identifiable voice, SEBASTIAN BACH has left a San Andreas Fault-size imprint on music, theater, film, television, and culture. Moreover, his influence only continues to magnify. He has penned and voiced some of the most iconic anthems in rock history, crafting a catalog highlighted by generational hits such as 18 And Life, I Remember You, Youth Gone Wild, Slave To The Grind, Wasted Time, and Monkey Business, to name a few. He has made history as “the first heavy metal singer on Broadway” with a now legendary turn in Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical in addition to leading roles in The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Jesus Christ Superstar. He has appeared in dozens of television series and films, ranging from Trailer Park Boys and Robot Chicken to Spongebob Squarepants, The Masked Singer, and Hell’s Kitchen. Speaking to his versatility, he’s the rare force of nature who can duet with Axl Rose and reprise a seven-season recurring role on Gilmore Girls.
