PADDY AND THE RATS have announced a new album!

Titled From Wasteland To Wonderland, the upcoming album from the Hungarian celtic punk band is the follow-up to 2017’s Riot City Outlaws, and is scheduled to be released in April this year, via Napalm Records.

For the new album, the band teamed up once again with producer Zoli Baker whilst the artwork was designed by Jill Colbert, who has also worked with bands like ALESTORM, EXODUS and WINTERSUN.

Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band have released the first song from the upcoming album; After The Rain. The new song is a heartfelt dedication to accordion player Bernie Bellamy (Bernát Babicsek), who sadly passed away at the start of 2022.

Speaking about the new song, the band says, “this album became very important to us because this is the last thing that Bernie recorded in his life. We’d like to dedicate the first single of the album to Bernie and to express all our emotions through the song we release first. That’s why we’ve chosen After The Rain. It’s a sad song but it also has a fully positive vibe. Sadness and desperation are there through the whole song, but meanwhile, you can feel something powerful when the pipe and the accordion come in at the drop. It conveys the feeling that you have to be strong and you have to move on. The last line in the chorus says: ‘After the rain, sunshine will never be the same’. I think this is the essence of the song. The absence of Bernie will be more endurable with time, but nothing will ever be the same without him.”
