Backyard is BACK!

That’s right, Edward David Anderson and his able co-conspirators return from hiatus in 2020 to play select festival and club dates with plans to release new music for the first time since 2010. Known for connecting with the common man, the Bloomington, IL based outfit released 6 albums & 2 EPs over a decade, averaging 200 shows a year. Touring with everyone from Gov’t Mule to Rev Horton Heat and playing high profile festivals like Mountain Jam in NY & High Sierra in CA garnered the band critical praise and a national audience. Paste Magazine said “These Midwesterners brandish a raucous live show and inventive studio albums,” while the Nashville Scene wrote “Bar Room Semantics is infused with the kind of dusty, bootstrap-pulling resilience that Midwesterners have spent decades perfecting.”
The long awaited return of these Black Dirt Music pioneers has arrived. The hiatus is over. Backyard is back and it’s good to be!
