PRE-ORDER: EXPECTED TO SHIP 21 JANUARY

Second album from Irish alt rock band Silverbacks, recorded with Daniel Fox (Girl Band), their first for Full Time Hobby. Their debut album was nominated for Irish Music Prize 2020, had a playlisted single on BBC 6 Music (Dunkirk) and picked up coverage from Stereogum, NME, DIY and Uncut.

From the very start, we’ve always wanted to be a ‘career band'. We don’t see the point in not constantly making music - if you’re lucky enough to be able to make music you like and enjoy it, why put restrictions on it?” says Kilian O’Kelly, one of the three guitarists in Silverbacks. His brother Daniel, who takes care of vocals and another of the guitars, nods in agreement. After the release and acclaim provided to their debut record ‘Fad’ in 2020, it would have been understandable for the band to take a step back and take stock of their
achievements thus far. Not so - writing sessions began early in 2020 for what they hope to be the follow-up, with Dan sending files back and forth from his new base in Paris while the others - Kilian, bassist and vocalist Emma Hanlon, guitarist Peadar Kearney and drummer Gary Wickham - remained in Ireland. They spent their downtime from live commitments refining and shaping their ideas, taking to the studio when they could with producer Daniel Fox (Girl Band) to try and push themselves and their music forward.
