sBACH Announces US Dates w/ Pinback

He’s done it again. Spencer Seim, these days known to the world as simply, sBACH, has just done the unthinkable… and yes that means he’s covered Paula Abdul’s “Cold Hearted Snake” and announced US dates w/ the mighty Pinback!

The lucky people at TheTripwire are the first to bring us this brain-child that is one of the more awesome covers in the world, and also report on all the happenings:

Talk about taking a departure. Spencer Seim, the man/creature/troglodyte who serves as the feral axe shredder of Hella and the skins man of The Advantage, dropped his new album back in August under the pseudonym of sBACH on Suicide Squeeze and according to the bio, sBACH is “a frenetic minge akin to the collective sights, sounds and sugar rushes in the heads of an entire elementary school being locked into a Chuck E. Cheese franchise while having to subside on an all you can eat buffet of Fun Dip and Pixie Stix as the animatronic band dishes out phosphorescent doom riffs while running amok with the blips and bleeps.”

So what does that combination result in? A Paula Abdul cover of course.
