SEBASTIAN BACH Taps Former STONE SOUR Touring Bassist

Bassist Jason Christopher — who filled in for Shawn Economaki during STONE SOUR‘s spring 2011 tour and who previously played with SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor in the JUNK BEER KIDNAP BAND — has joined former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach‘s solo group. Bach says, “I have known Jasonfor years, ever since he tried to pickpocket me at the Rainbow [in West Hollywood] aeons ago.”

Bach will kick off a short run of North American dates tomorrow night (Wednesday, February 1) in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Bach‘s “TunnelVision” video can be seen below. The clip is one of three videos that the singer filmed on June 28, 2011 in Hollywood, California with director Devin DeHaven of Fortress Entertainment (PAPA ROACH, WHITESNAKE, METHOD MAN, TALIB KWELI).

“TunnelVision” comes off Bach‘s new album, “Kicking Screaming”, which sold 6,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 73 on The Billboard 200 chart. The singer’s previous CD, “Angel Down”, opened with 6,400 units back in November 2007 to debut at No. 190.
