“Child Within The Man” was released on Friday via Reigning Phoenix Music. The LP was recorded in Orlando, Florida; produced and mixed by Michael “Elvis” Baskette; engineered by Jef Moll, assistant engineered by Josh Saldate and mastered by Robert Ludwig of Gateway Mastering. Bach wrote or co-wrote all the album’s 11 tracks and sang all lead and backing vocals.

“Child Within The Man” features guest appearances from John 5 (MÖTLEY CRÜE, ROB ZOMBIE, MARILYN MANSON),Steve Stevens (BILLY IDOL) and Orianthi (ALICE COOPER, MICHAEL JACKSON) — who all co-wrote their respective tracks with Bach — and two tracks co-written with ALTER BRIDGE‘s Myles Kennedy (“What Do I Got to Lose?” and “To Live Again”). Devin Bronson (guitars),Todd Kerns (bass) and Jeremy Colson (drums) round out the players on the album. The album is available on jewelcase CD, cassette, and double LP in a variety of color options.

In an interview with “Whiplash”, the KLOS radio show hosted by Full Metal Jackie, Sebastian spoke about the inspiration for the “Child Within The Man” title. He said: “Well, my wife calls me man-child. That’s kind of been a theme for me my whole career. I bring a youthful energy to the stage when I get up there. People are smiling and excited and hooting and hollering. But the line ‘child within the man’ is a line of one of the songs on the record. And I scream it like bloody murder. And it kept haunting me. “

Sebastian also talked about the “Child Within The Man” artwork, which holds special meaning since it was designed by Bach‘s father, noted visual artist David Bierk.

“I have a lot of my dad’s artwork,” Bach said. “He’s no longer alive. And we all, all of his kids, we got a lot of his art when he passed away. And I unrolled a roll of paintings that I knew had the SKID ROW ‘Subhuman Race’ painting in it, and I wanna take care of it and make sure it’s preserved. But in that roll was this painting that I remember my dad doing of me when I was 10 in a field next to this beat-up old Cadillac car in the field and then behind the car, it’s Jesus ascending into heaven, and I’m running next to the car. It looks like an album cover. And then he also did a painting of me from Circus magazine, the first centerfold of me on stage at Giants Stadium. He did a gigantic painting of that, like 12 feet high. And so the cover is gonna be me running as a child into me on stage as a man, and it’s child within the man. And it just reminds me of the ’70s, like child in time, and it just reminds me of a good ’70s album cover. And the fact that I can bring back a painting from the year 1978 and make it into artwork in 2023, 2024, that’s really mind-blowing to me.”

Bach‘s “What Do I Got To Lose?” tour is a mix of solo gigs and festival appearances. The stateside tour will wrap June 29 in San Diego, California.

Bach performed “What Do I Got To Lose?” live for the first time during his February 24 concert at Palace Theatre in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Prior to the arrival of “Child Within The Man”, Bach hadn’t released a full-length disc since “Give ‘Em Hell”, which came out in March 2014. Like its predecessor, 2011’s “Kicking & Screaming”, the LP was released through Frontiers Music Srl, the Italian label which specializes in what’s commonly called AOR, a term that once signified a popular radio format (“album-oriented rock”) but nowadays applies to acts whose airplay is marginal.
