SEBASTIAN BACH releases ‘Hold On (To The Dream)’






Singer, songwriter, author, Broadway star, and actor SEBASTIAN BACH has released new single “(Hold On) To The Dream” and its accompanying official video, taken from his forthcoming album Child Within The Man out May 10 on Reigning Phoenix Music.

“If someone asked me to play the heaviest song I have ever recorded, in my 35 year career, I would play them ‘(Hold On) To The Dream,’” SEBASTIAN says. “This song is an homage to two of my favorite things: classic METAL of the ’70s and also YACHT ROCK as well! Hence the new term YACHT METAL! I have never heard a song quite like ‘(Hold On)To The Dream’ where the crushing verse combined with the luxurious chest-hair harmonies of the chorus. I have tried to incorporate every tone of my voice into this song. For those of you keeping score, I can tell you that my voice hits some of the highest notes of my career in ‘(Hold On) To The Dream!’ HOLD ON TO YOUR SEATS!!! CAUTION: this is a MONSTER JAM!”

Child Within The Man was recorded in Orlando, Florida; 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 11 tracks and sang all lead and backing vocals. Child Within The Man features guest appearances from John 5, Steve Stevens, and Orianthi – who all co-wrote their respective tracks with BACH – and two tracks co-written with Myles Kennedy (“What Do I Got to Lose?” and “To Live Again’). Devin Bronson on guitars, Todd Kerns (bass), and Jeremy Colson (drums) round out the players on the album.

The album will be available on jewelcase CD, cassette, and double LP in a variety of colour options, including a glow in the dark edition! Pre-order the album HERE.

The album artwork holds 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 quips.

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, theatre, 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 catalogue 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.”
