Los Angeles, CA - One of Scandinavian hard rock's most influential and beloved acts, Sweden's BACKYARD BABIES – aptly described by Classic Rock as “a tattoo-heavy cross between Green Day and Generation X” – will deliver “Sliver & Gold,” their eighth full-length blast of Nordic noir, in North America on March 29.

In advance of Friday's kickoff of a two-month European tour, the band has unveiled a music video for a third preview track from the new album, “44 Undead” https://youtu.be/Kk5-RrnuG1wShot on the streets of Manchester, Sheffield, London, Bristol and Stockholm by drummer Peder Carlsson, the video portrays an anthemic yet somewhat melancholic track that showcases a more introverted side of BACKYARD BABIES as compared to the two party-rock jams from the album (“Shovin' Rocks” https://youtu.be/dp__OsEyWec and “Good Morning Midnight” https://youtu.be/h39Cot39k9s) that were previously released.

Described by singer/guitarist Nicke Borg as BACKYARD BABIES' “most intense and furious album to date,” “Sliver & Gold” – which was produced by the legendary Chips Kiesbye (The Hellacopters, Graveyard, Michael Monroe) – follows the exact same recipe that made the group one of the most consistent rock bands of our time: a perfect balance between sleazy punk rock on one hand, and decidedly mature, thoroughly melancholic tunes on the other.

"Sliver & Gold" Track Listing:

1. Good Morning Midnight

2. Simple Being Sold

3. Shovin‘ Rocks

4. Ragged Flag

5. Yes To All No

6. Bad Seeds

7. 44 Undead

8. Sliver And Gold

9. A Day Late In My Dollar Shorts

10. Laugh Now Cry Later

Physical copies of “Sliver & Gold” will also include five bonus acoustic versions of songs from the group's storied past – "Th1rt3en or Nothing," "A Song For The Outcast," "Highlights, "Star War" and "Nomadic." The album can be pre-ordered on CD or limited-edition white vinyl at this location (www.m-theoryaudio.com/store). T-shirt bundles are available at this location http://kr-m.co/backyard!

Over the past three decades, BACKYARD BABIES – who have won two Grammys in Sweden, where each of the group's past five records have reached the Top 3 of the country's album charts (including two #1's) – have toured the world with the likes of Guns N' Roses, AC/DC, Motorhead, Social Distortion, Velvet Revolver and Alice Cooper. Classic releases such as “Total 13,” “Making Enemies Is Good” and “Stockholm Syndrome” made the group one of sleaze rock's most beloved acts around the globe, but “Sliver & Gold” shows that the band is still a raucous force to be reckoned with.

After all these years touring and making music together, we still love what we do, and still we find new ways musically,” says guitarist Dregen. “'Sliver & Gold' sounds like classic BACKYARD BABIES, but with a total new set of spices. And they are damn hot!
