PADDY AND THE RATS have announced their upcoming album From Wasteland To Wonderland, out April 29, 2022 via Napalm Records!
With their mix of pub tunes and punk rock accompanied by Celtic accents, PADDY AND THE RATS welcome the listener into a blustery world of pirates and sailors abound with their new offering. From Wasteland To Wonderland builds upon the energetic mood of its predecessor, Riot City Outlaws, resulting in a mighty seaworthy successor!
PADDY AND THE RATS on “After The Rain”:
“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.”
