SBB Back with New Album

Legendary Polish 1970s rock band SBB is making a comeback to the music scene with a new album entitled Iron Curtain. The release is scheduled to hit the stores Jan. 26.

The band's previous release, The Rock, appeared in 2007 amid enthusiastic reviews from both fans and critics. The new album features some good old rock sounds, alongside a collection of genre-breaking tracks that defy immediate classification.

"We are the generation responsible for dispelling the myth of the Iron Curtain in Europe," says SBB frontman Józef Skrzek. "SBB's new sound is a reflection of the life of those who took down barriers at the time. Our music expresses the feelings of the rebels of those days."

Started in 1971 in the southern city of Siemianowice, SBB was hailed as one of the best rock bands in communist Poland. Led by Skrzek, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, the band mostly favored blues rock, jazz rock, and progressive rock.

The band's name originally stood for "Silesian Blues Band" and was then taken to mean "Szukaj, Burz, Buduj," or "Search, Break, Build."
