News: Barenaked Ladies Announce New Album ‘Silverball’

Published On May 23, 2015 | By Victoria Venardos | News

(AUS) After 27 years together, over 14 million albums sold, and multiple Grammy nominations, Silverball, Barenaked Ladies 14th studio album, finds the long-standing partnership of Ed Robertson (guitar, vocals) Jim Creeggan (bass, vocals) Kevin Hearn (keyboard, guitar, vocals) and Tyler Stewart (drums, vocals) firing on all cylinders.

“This is the first record since our debut, Gordon, that was written with no hand-wringing, second guessing, insecurity or self-doubt” states Ed Robertson. Silverball was produced by the band’s longtime friend Gavin Brown (The Tragically Hip, Metric) who helmed their previous project, 2013’s Grinning Streak. The album’s thirteen tracks showcase the band’s growth, while still delivering a flurry of counterpunches and a wisecrack or two, in true BNL fashion.

The first single to be released from the album is ‘Say What You Want’ and is accompanied by a music video which showcases the bands love of pinball – a theme that is carried throughout the album. Silverball is out on May 29 (digital) and June 12 (CD and vinyl) through Vanguard/Caroline Australia.
