Born Ruffians announce new album 'RUFF' + debut new track!
Wednesday, July 15, 2015

It's time... Born Ruffians have announced their new record RUFF, out October 2nd on Paper Bag Records! The record is simultaneously a return to form and a departure from expectations. Songs of refutation, lamentations of forgotten past lives and ecstatic self-erasures that say "eat shit, we did it!". RUFF, as an idea, is everything - sound, message, band. If Birthmarks was polished and presentable, RUFF is the ugly innards that hide beneath.

Listen to the first single 'We Made It' right below.

Pre-order RUFF on standard purple vinyl, signed CD, or as part of a VERY special DELUXE LP package on the Paper Bag Records online store. Pre-order on iTunes here.

The band has also announced an extensive run of tour dates! See the full list below.
