Legendary Swedish rockers Backyard Babies are back! More than three years after their last studio album “Four By Four”, Nicke, Dregen, Johan and Peder are about to celebrate their upcoming 30th anniversary in style with a brand new record entitled “Sliver & Gold” which is set to be released on 01 March 2019 via Century Media Records.
It will contain 10 sizzling new songs following the exact same recipe that has made Backyard Babies one of the most consistent rock bands of our time: a perfect balance between sleazy, punky, all-out party rock n’ roll on the one hand, and decidedly mature, thoroughly melancholic tunes on the other. While catchy sing-a-long smashers like the first single “Shovin’ Rocks”, album opener “Good Morning Midnight”, the anthemic “Bad Seeds” or “44 Undead” will have you fist-pumping and foot stompin’ along with your left foot in a cowboy boot and your right paw in a Chuck Taylor sneaker, the beautiful ballad-like album closer “Laugh Now, Cry Later” will cause you to shed a tear or two into your Jack and Coke. What a ride!
