The Swedish rock scene has never had a shortage of great acts, Backyard Babies has always been considered one of Sweden’s premier acts. They’re about to release their eighth album, called Silver & Gold. Here is the information that was sent to us about the album:
In 2019, BACKYARD BABIES – one of Sweden’s longest-running and most influential hard rock bands – celebrate their 30th anniversary with the release of their eighth studio album, “Sliver & Gold,” which will be issued in North America on March 15 via M-Theory Audio. The record – which was produced by the legendary Chips Kiesbye (The Hellacopters, Graveyard, Michael Monroe) – is now available for pre-order on white vinyl (limited-edition 300 copies) and CD at this location – www.m-theoryaudio.com/store.
In recent weeks, BACKYARD BABIES has previewed two new tracks from the record, which was described by singer/guitarist Nicke Borg as their “most intense and furious album to date” – the anthemic “Shovin’ Rocks,” the music video for which can be seen here:
and album opener “Good Morning Midnight,”:
“Sliver & Gold” (which is not a typo, by the way) contains eight additional sizzling new songs following the exact same recipe that made BACKYARD BABIES one of the most consistent rock bands of our time: a perfect balance between sleazy, punky, all-out party rock on one hand, and decidedly mature, thoroughly melancholic tunes on the other.
