Born Ruffians & Plants and Animals Announce Joint Canadian Tour

Born Ruffians & Plants and Animals Announce Joint Canadian Tour
Travelling across the Great White North and its smaller American cousin can be long and often lonely experience for a band. In fact, it can be so lonely that sometimes it’s best to bring along a whole other band to keep you company. So that’s the plan for Toronto’s Born Ruffians and Montreal’s Plants and Animals, who will be hitting the road together for a joint fall tour of Canada and the U.S.

For Born Ruffians, they’ll be touring in support of Red, Yellow and Blue, their Warp Records debut. On the road, they will also be showing off the sounds of their new digital EP, Little Garcon, which they be will selling on vinyl at the merch table throughout the tour.

As for the forward-thinking roots outfit, Plant and Animals, they will be sporting the sounds of their recent full-length debut, Parc Avenue, which is one of the contenders for this year’s Polaris Music Prize.
