BACKYARD BABIES Select New Single, Set International Release Date For Album

Sweden's BACKYARD BABIES have selected "A Song For The Outcast" as the second single from their latest full-length album, "Stockholm Syndrome". The CD, which was issued in Scandinavia last month through RCA/BMG Records, is slated for release in other parts of the world on March 1, 2004.

The follow-up to 2001's "Making Enemies Is Good" was recorded at Stockholm's Polar studios and was mixed in Los Angeles with producer Joe Barresi (LIMP BIZKIT, BUCKCHERRY, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MONSTER MAGNET, KYUSS). The video for the album's first single, "Minus Celsius", was shot in L.A. in September with director Dean Karr (DEFTONES, MUDVAYNE, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE).

BACKYARD BABIES' last two efforts, "Making Enemies Is Good" and 1998's "Total 13", were both certified gold in Sweden for sales in excess of 30,000 copies.
