Sebastian Bach has expressed renewed optimism about reuniting with his former band, Skid Row. The iconic singer parted ways with the group in 1996 after a heated altercation, and despite showing interest in reconciling over the years, his efforts were consistently met with resistance from his ex-bandmates.

In a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk, Bach shared the reasons behind his newfound hope for a reunion. Bach revealed:

“I found out something at the very last Kiss show that I did not know before.
“It’s a major piece of miscommunication. I need to communicate with [Skid Row] because there’s been something that happened that is not accurate. I can’t tell you what it is, but the whole narrative of they don’t like me and I’m too crazy is complete bullshit. It’s not true. There’s been attempts to get us going again.”

Bach went on to express his belief that the barriers to a reunion are based on misunderstandings. He continued:

“I can just tell the world that there’s a good chance that’ll happen because there’s no fucking reason not to.
“Because right now why it hasn’t happened is a miscommunication. That’s all I can say. There’s a miscommunication.”

The singer, who recently launched his solo album Child Within the Man, has his hands full with a solo tour running through the end of July. Meanwhile, Skid Row recently parted ways with their singer Erik Gronwall, and for a short stint starting May 17, Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale will step in as their frontwoman.

Despite his optimism, Bach acknowledged the delicate nature of the situation. He explained:

“I need to write a thoughtful email clearing up a miscommunication, but I have to make sure it’s the perfect fucking email and I don’t say anything wrong or make any jokes.
“I just don’t have the energy to do that right now, but I know I need to do that. I’ve just got a lot on my plate right now.”

Sebastian Bach’s Hopes and Fears for a Skid Row Reunion

In the same interview, Bach also touched on his dreams and fears regarding a potential Skid Row reunion. He described having dreams where “there’s no fighting or drama,” but admitted his subconscious also plays out his anxieties. Bach confessed:

“I have a recurring fucking nightmare where Skid Row reunites, and I go to the gig, and I forget my in-ears.
“I’m backstage, and the whole arena’s packed. And Rachel [Bolan] and Snake [Dave Sabo], I go, ‘Fuck, you guys. Fuck, I’ve gotta go back to the hotel. I forgot my fucking in-ears.’ [Laughs] And I’m in the Uber, and I’m fucking racing, and the whole reunion’s happening. I’ve gotta get my fucking in-ears, and I can’t get the hotel key. So let’s analyze that, let’s analyze that shit right there that goes on in my head.”

Sebastian Bach’s candid revelations indicate a complicated yet hopeful path towards a Skid Row reunion. While the past has been fraught with misunderstandings and miscommunications, his willingness to address these issues suggests that fans might still get to see the iconic band back together.
