One of hard rock’s most enduring voices is back. On Thursday, Sebastian Bach released his first new song in a decade, “What Do I Got to Lose?” Stream the official music video below, directed by Jim Louvau and Tony Aguilera.

The track is the lead single from Sebastian’s forthcoming solo album, which is due out next year through Reigning Phoenix Music. The all-new “What Do I Got to Lose?” was penned by Bach, along with Alter Bridge frontman and Slash singer Myles Kennedy, and producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Falling In Reverse, Alter Bridge, Limp Bizkit). In the music video, Bach is joined by his former Skid Row bandmate, drummer Rob Affuso.

“To me, What Do I Got To Lose?’ is the perfect sentiment for me right now,” Sebastian says. “It’s an anthem for coming back and crushing it. It’s time to lay down the law and put the hammer down old school-style.”

Sebastian’s forthcoming solo album is due out next year through Reigning Phoenix Music.

“I cannot express enough how happy I am to have a full and complete team of rock and roll professionals on my side with RPM music,” Bach states. “We have been working on this record together for over eight years and I could not be more proud of the results! Gerardo, Oscar, Sven and all at RPM Music share in the passion of rock n’ roll and together we look forward to kicking ass all over the world in 2024!”

“Everyone at RPM [Reigning Phoenix Music] is extremely excited to work with Sebastian Bach,” says RPM’s Gerardo Martinez. “He’s one of the most iconic personalities, and arguably one of the best lead singers in the history of hard rock and metal!”

Last night [December 6], Bach was revealed to be “Tiki” on Fox’s smash hit show, The Masked Singer.

“When I first agreed to be on the show, I thought it was mostly about comedy and costumes, which it definitely is,” Bach says about his time on The Masked Singer. “But when I actually did the show, I realized that The Masked Singer is about SINGING! Which I love to do! I had an incredible time doing the show. My favorite song that I got to do was ‘Magic’ by Pilot. The high clean tenor sound of that vocal is incredible to sing for me! It was great making new friends and getting to put on a crazy show with awesome music! Thank you to Nick Cannon and all at The Masked Singer! Would love to do it again sometime!”

Next year, Sebastian is hitting the road for a mix of solo gigs and festival appearances, with more shows to be announced in the coming months.
