Former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach will be touring this fall to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band's hit second album, Slave to the Grind.

The tour comes two years after Bach hit the road with his solo band to celebrate 30 years since Skid Row's debut album.

The 'Slave to the Grind' tour kicks off September 25 in Waterloo, New York. It will make nearly 40 stops before wrapping up December 17 in San Diego. Detroit based rockers Kaleido will serve as main support. Tickets go on sale Friday. Go here for tickets and more information. Get all the tour dates below.

Slave to the Grind is an extra special album for Baz. It was the first Skid Row album on which he's credited as a songwriter on multiple tracks, and the album artwork was created by his father David Bierk. In a statement, Bach said his show production will incorporate never-before-seen photos of the making of the album cover, which was inspired by a painting from the 1600s.

For the band, Slave to the Grind represents Skid Row's secure place in heavy metal history. It was the first metal album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Ultimately, the record went double platinum.

"None of us could believe the day Slave to the Grind came out and became the first heavy rock album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard album chart," Bach said. "The band were naturally ecstatic, as were the record company and all involved, as well as my father and my family. I look forward to playing Slave to the Grind in its entirety in the U.S. this fall for the 30th anniversary and for the first time offer a look behind-the-scenes into the creation of the album cover artwork."
