Pre-order Born Ruffians new album BIRTHMARKS.


The new album from Born Ruffians is now available for pre-order on the Yep Roc Store, along with a snazzy Born Ruffians t-shirt and sticker set.  Visit HERE to see an exclusive behind the scenes video from the band.

A key ingredient in the creation of Born Ruffians’ new album,Birthmarks, was a remote farmhouse in rural Ontario.  The band wanted to return to the days spent writing their debut, Red, Yellow & Blue, wherein 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 shared with fans around the world via YouTube.



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, anywhere and everywhere inspiration might strike. Several songs were realized during the recording process in the studio. The twelve-track album was written and demoed over the course of three years and was produced by Roger Leavens at Boombox Sound in Toronto.
