BORN RUFFIANS PREMIERES NEW VIDEO FOR “MISS YOU”

Critically acclaimed Toronto band Born Ruffians are premiering the video for their latest single “Miss You” from their upcoming fifth studio album Uncle, Duke & The Chief (outFebruary 16 on Yep Roc Records) via The 405; watch/share the video athttp://bit.ly/2FCWJjx. The video is the third in a series starring frontman Luke Lalonde and directed by Leah Fay Goldstein and Peter Dreimanis of July Talk. It follows the videos for the tracks “Love Too Soon” and “Forget Me.”

Discussing the “Miss You” video, Lalonde notes that “we had a lot of fun working on the third installment in our trilogy of videos that we shot with Peter Dreimanis and Leah Fay Goldstein. We spent the day in pretty realistic old man prosthetics and we couldn’t help but be in character the whole time. We went straight method and embodied the role of ‘old weirdos.’ The prosthetic skin felt very real to the touch, it was a glimpse into our potential future.”

The band has also confirmed a slate of European dates in support of the album beginningMay 27 in Aachen, Germany. The world tour includes a five-night residency in the group’s hometown at Lee’s Palace, with four of the shows already sold out; see below for a list of dates.

The first record since 2013’s Birthmarks to feature the group’s original three-piece lineup of guitarist/vocalist Lalonde, bassist Mitch DeRosier and drummer Steve HamelinUncle, Duke & The Chief is produced by Richard Swift (The Shins, Foxygen, Tennis, Nathaniel Rateliff). Pre-order the album at https://lnk.to/ruffians.

Lalonde says of the band’s reunited core trio, “We all have the same weird, shorthand language of knowing how to put a song together…it’s really super-fast and efficient.” The album’s writing was greatly informed by both Bowie’s passing as well as a cancer diagnosis for Lalonde’s father.

In addition to his work with Born Ruffians, Lalonde also recently made his acting debut alongside Tim Heidecker in the feature film Sundowners. Watch a trailer for the movie at https://youtu.be/r2BHYiy-WTE.
