BACKYARD BABIES Are Back! New Studio Album And Tour In The Works

October 11, 2014

Five years after they announced that they were going on an "indefinite hiatus," Swedish sleaze rockers BACKYARD BABIES are back and are working on a new studio album for a 2015 release. The band has also been confirmed for next year's edition of the Sweden Rock Festival, set to take place June 3-6, 2015 in Sölvesborg, Sweden.

In a 2009 interview with Classic Rock magazine, BACKYARD BABIES
guitarist Dregen stated about the band's decision to take a break. "We've been touring, recording and writing for 20 years, the last 10 at a very intense level. It's time for a well-deserved break before we begin writing the next album. . . We're talking months. For the BACKYARD BABIES, two weeks is a long time. If the hiatus lasted for a year, that would be an absolute maximum. During that time we won't be booking any shows, just trying to find a new spark."

To celebrate two decades together, BACKYARD BABIES embarked on the "Them XX Tour" in January/February 2010. In addition, they released a deluxe 120-page book titled "Them XX" containing private photos, three CDs and a DVD-documentary that conveys the 20 years of the BACKYARD BABIES story.

The band's latest, self-titled album topped the chart in the group's home country in its first week of release. The CD also entered the Finnish album chart at No. 31.

Released in Europe on August 18, 2008 via Billion Dollar Babies/Spinefarm, "Backyard Babies" was recorded during 90 sweaty days and nights at Polar and Big Island Sound studios in Stockholm with producer Jacob Hellner (RAMMSTEIN, APOCALYPTICA).
