Veteran Swedish rockers BACKYARD BABIES have released a new single, “Shovin’ Rocks”. The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album, “Silver And Gold”, which is scheduled for an early 2019 release via Century Media.
The band comments: “We will soon enough celebrate 30 years as BACKYARD BABIES, with the original lineup intact, and ‘Shovin’ Rocks’ is in full covering that fact. This is our first single in a major since ‘Look At You’, our breakthrough single from 1998. If you don’t love this, then you don’t love rock ‘n’ roll.”
The video for “Shovin’ Rocks”, which directed by BACKYARD BABIES drummer Peder Carlsson, can be seen below.
Jens Prüter, head of A&R Century Media Europe, comments on signing BACKYARD BABIES: “It’s no surprise that you meet twice if both a label and a band are already around for almost 30 years. It’s 12 years ago when we worked together on the ‘People Like People Like People Like Us’ album and it feels great to welcome back the BACKYARD BABIES to celebrate their 30th anniversary of rock ‘n’ roll with a new album in early 2019. And the new single is a perfect way to invite the guests to a party that won’t end soon. Some people don’t get older but just stronger. People like us.”
BACKYARD BABIES officially reunited in 2014, five years after they announced that they were going on an “indefinite hiatus.” A new album, “Four By Four”, arrived in 2015.
BACKYARD BABIES is:
Nicke Borg – lead vocals / guitar
Dregen – lead guitar / vocals
Johan Blomquist – bass
Peder Carlsson – drums
