10 January 2022, 16:23 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Silverbacks have kicked off 2022 with "A Job Worth Something", the fourth preview of their Archive Material album due out later this month.

"A Job Worth Something" is the group's first new material of the year, and will appear on Archive Material alongside "Rolodex City", "Archive Material" and "Wear My Medals".

Vocalist and guitarist Daniel O’Kelly says of the new release, "For most of the pandemic I lived with my sister who is a healthcare worker and was working in the designated Covid hospital in St James' Dublin. Unfortunately, I was far less heroic, writing copy for a car insurance company."

"This song is about feeling embarrassed about how different our lives were at this time," O'Kelly adds. "When it comes to telling my grandchildren what all this was like, I’ll be telling them about my sisters who have more important stories to share."

Archive Material will follow Silverbacks' 2020 album Fad, and was recorded in November 2020 at Dublin’s Sonic Studios with producer Daniel Fox.

"A Job Worth Something" is out now. Silverbacks' Archive Material album will be released 21 January via Full Time Hobby, and is available to pre-order now.
