Swedish rock’n’roll institution BACKYARD BABIES return this Summer after a five-year lay-off with a new single and a whole load of festival dates, followed by a new album in August.
The single ‘Th1rt3en Or Nothing’ is out now and you can listen to it here.
A brand new album Four By Four – their eighth – follows on 28 August through Gain.
Between times, they’ll hit the European festival circuit, kicking off with Sweden Rock on 5 June plus an appearance in the UK at Download on 14 June. Full dates are below.
Formed in 1989 in the small town of Nässjö, the band still features its original line-up of Peder Carlsson, Johan Blomquist, Dregen and Nicke Borg. Involved in various projects over the years, Dregen formed Hellacopters in 1994 and more recently played alongside Michael Monroe.
