After the enormous success of their much-loved debut LP 'Fad' last year, Silverbacks have now returned to announce the details behind their next studio album 'Archive Material', which is set to be released on the 21st January via Full Time Hobby.


The new full-length will include the previously shared single 'Wear My Medals', and is being previewed by the record's title-track.


Speaking about the new offering, vocalist and guitarist Daniel O’Kelly said, “The initial demo version started from a drum sample taken from the opening of Jean-Pierre Massiera’s “Bonne Annee”. When we fleshed it out as a full band and Gary gave the track his usual kick up the arse, the song went full Les Baxter exotica mode.


"When writing the lyrics, I imagined a bunch of government officials in the deep underground of their building digging into archives. As the night continues, they get unusually aroused by the access they have to top secret information that the common folk never see.”
