Former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach says he's working in a recording studio on a top-secret project "that will revolutionize popular music as we know it."

Bach made the claim on his Facebook page alongside a photo from the studio, but added no further details about his revolutionary new recording.

In other Bach news, he recently posted a letter which said he would consider reuniting with Skid Row.

"For the fans, I would be willing to put my ego aside and do something that would be special for the people who put us where we are today," he wrote. "I do not personally want it myself. But it's not always about 'what I want.' If the fans really want to see us together, I would do it for the fans. Sometimes you can do things for people other than yourself."

His latest album "Kicking And Screaming" sold 6,600 copies in the US in its first week of release, landing at no. 73 on the Billboard chart an improvement on his previous release "Angel Down" which opened with 6,400 sales.

Can you guess what his revolutionary new project could be? Is it just hype? Let's have some fun and share your harebrained ideas in the comments. We'll start: Bach is working with Trent Reznor on a new Beats by Dre project. Your turn!

    revolutionize it? I think we are going to be sorely disappointed.

    Probably. It's a pretty big claim to make by one person, I think he's just adding hype for his next project to sell some more. He's a great singer though, I'll give him that.

    Revolutionise "popular" music. Who cares! Don't remember the last time I switched on the radio to check out the latest Nickelback single... Surely he can't go to far wrong.

    itll take more than one dude to start a music revolution though. its gonna take a buncha young pissed off adults with an excellent taste in music and have formidable musicianship. and i hope to be a big part of it

    Bach covers Bach an album of vocal covers of classical pieces.

    Actually Bach is from the Baroque period, not the Classical.

    Yeah, but in common usage "Classical Music" typically means music from before the 20th century. Not just music from the classical era. It's like how in common usage "America" generally refers to the United States as a country, even though it could also refer to the continents of North America and South America.

    ...except that there are a multitude of "classical" composers from the 20th century: Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Strauss, Copland, Gershwin, etc.

    Bach IS the baroque period and the baroque period is considered to have ended when he died because he was the master and pioneer of it.
    Yax
    The word "classical music" is a meta genre dude. It includes Baroque.

    He hasn't had a hit song in 20 years, how is he going to "revolutionize music"???

    Agreed. If he didn't revolutionize music in the 90's when Skid Row was at their peak, he sure as hell isn't gonna do it at the end of his career in this musical climate.
    AAAaaayyy!
    it will be a generic pop rock album that everybody will forget about in a month

    Angel Down is criminally underappreciated. That album kicked so hard, but his last album was pretty average. I wish he'd rehire Metal Mike and Steve DiGiorgio and keep going the metal route.

    Wow, maybe he's gonna get a hair cut and realize that the " good ol' days" aren't coming back

    Can anyone explain why Sebastian Bach has so much capital in the metal community? I know he was in Skid Row which had a few hits but there were nothing big and seemed tied to one of rock's most embarrassing sub-genres (hair-metal). Since then he just appears on every VH1 show opining about a list of the 100 greatest sax solos of the 90s
    Yax
    It's wrong to brand Skid Row as hair metal. Their three most well known hits deceive you (and besides, even the hits were much more metal than any hair metal bands). Their second album was a brilliant masterpiece with a lot incommon with trash metal - Nothing hiar metal about it. Third one was even harder, although failed to maintain the songwriting level of the second album.

    This crossdresser should do the world a favour and crawl in a hole and die with skidmarks (his band)

    So he is trying to bring music Bach to the good old days? ... Honestly I didn't realize this guy was still relevant.

    I'm going to use the photo as my reference and say (now I'm shooting in the dark here) he is going create an album with the rhythmic sounds of beating the mixing board with various instruments. Including a mouth harp, vuvuzela and his own face.

    Hahahahaha. That is golden! He should record a videoclip of it too . Kinda reminds me of Lou Reed's "Metal Machine Music".

    "I'll do it for the fans" = "I don't really want to do it but my solo career sucks and I need the money to pay for my douchebag lifestyle."

    I'm afraid the only band who will ever revolutionize music is....WYLD STALLYNS!!!

    (love is) a bitch slap from angel down revolutionized music in my book
    crizzy218
    Yeah, great song and a great record!

    That album was pretty decent for a Bach 'solo' album. There were a few good songs on it. His newest one was just horrible, though. It was only a slight improvement, but I was kinda disappointed to hear Kicking & Screaming had a better opening week than Angel Down.
    crizzy218
    Well i think they had some problems with the distribution the first weeks when Angel Down was released, hence the lower amount of sales

    Rejoins Skid Row, releases concept album, uses songwriters from last 2 solo albums.

    Less talking, more playing please! Money grubber. Here's some revolution for ya: http://perhaps.bandcamp.com/

    It is pretty cool. Maybe it's revolutionary in spirit, it probably doesn't "revolutionize pop" either. But it's a million times better than anything Bach has done. At least the first 12 minutes. Good work--keep it up.

    Good luck to saving the music industry, is he going to blow up the whole internet?
