NEWS: Born Ruffians return with their brilliant third album Birthmarks on April 16th.

Born Ruffians gave fans a taste of their new material on New Years Day when they posted a stream of new song "With Her Shadow", which is now available for download here.  The Ontario-based four-piece are excited to reveal details of their upcoming third long-player Birthmarks which will be released in Canada on April 16th by Paper Bag Records.  The twelve-track album was written a demoed over the past three years and was  produced by Roger Leavens at Boombox Sound in Toronto. 
Born Ruffians have just announced a string of Canadian tour dates.  Full details below.
A key ingredient to the creation of Birthmarks was a remote farmhouse in rural Ontario.  The band wanted to return to the days spent writing their debut, Red, Yellow & Blue when they lived together and "whenever we had an idea we could work it out right there that moment." Born Ruffians', often hilarious, time spent at the farmhouse was documented on video and can be viewed here.

While some of Birthmarks was born on the farm, many of the songs were conceived long before. Luke Lalonde would write and demo constantly on his laptop, at home, on tour, in Toronto, Montreal, Midland, Australia, France, Germany, everywhere. Several songs were realized during the recording process in the studio.

"We don't want to tell you about what we think we sound like," says the band's Mitch DeRosier. "We can tell you that this record will sound different. These songs lived with us, toured with us, got drunk with us and made our ears ring. Now, we get to hit the road and start making your ears ring."
