BACKYARD BABIES' new studio album, "People Like People Like People Like Us", is due in Sweden on April 12 via Sony BMG. The follow-up to 2003's "Stockholm Syndrome" was produced by THE HELLACOPTERS frontman/ex-ENTOMBED drummer Nicke Andersson, whose "genius arrangements have raised the bar musically," according to a press release.

The new BABIES album marks the first time that BACKYARD BABIES guitarist Dregen and Andersson have worked together since THE HELLACOPTERS' "Payin' the Dues" CD in 1997.

"People Like People Like People Like Us" track listing:

01. People Like People Like People Like Us
02. Cockblocker Blues
03. Dysfunction Professional
04. We Go A Long Way Back
05. Roads
06. Blitzkrieg Loveshock
07. The Mess Age (How Could I Be So Wrong)
08. I Got Spades
09. Hold 'em Down
10. Heroes & Heroines
11. You Cannot Win
12. Things to Do Before We Die

Having spent the better part of 2005 on tour with SOCIAL DISTORTION in both Europe and North America, BACKYARD BABIES' souvenir of their concert experience, "Live Live in Paris" (no, that's not a typo; it's the verb followed by the adjective), received a U.S. release last month via Liquor and Poker Music. Recorded before a sold-out French crowd during the "Stockholm Syndrome" European tour, it provides a memorable snapshot of the booze-fueled gutter rock that's earned the quartet worldwide acclaim.
