Silverbacks have announced that they’ve signed to Full Time Hobby and shared their first new single for the label.
New track ‘Wear My Medals’ follows the band’s debut album ‘Fad’, which was nominated for Ireland’s Choice Music Prize in 2020.
“From the very start, we’ve always wanted to be a ‘career band’,” guitarist Kilian O’Kelly said. “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?”
Of the new track, producer Daniel O’Kelly added: “We always set out while demoing to write ‘Emma Songs’ - songs that we think will specifically work for Emma’s vocals.
“We were quite a ways through the latest batch before we realised we hadn’t gotten any Emma Songs down so she and Kilian got to work.”
