Born Ruffians Share Music Video, Book North American Fall Tour

Born Ruffians Share Music Video, Book North American Fall Tour
The promotional push continues for Born Ruffians, who released Birthmarks back in the spring. The band are spreading the word about their latest LP with a North American fall tour, as well as a new music video.

The band will spend the rest of the summer playing shows and festivals in Canada before beginning the fall in Europe for a string of international shows. They will return to these shores in mid-October for another month's worth of gigs, including a number of U.S. appearances, plus some Ontario dates.

See the schedule below, and scroll past that to watch the newly unveiled video for "Needle," which takes viewers on a trip around New York City.

The clip was directed by Istoica and James Cooper, that latter of whom explained in a statement: "We like the idea of the performer being mirrored in the audience. We shot the video over several days in New York City. We followed Luke Lalonde around New York in big crowds of people, smaller groups of friends and on his own. The video takes place over a night out in New York so we left some things up to chance and kind of followed wherever the night took us. Much of the video was shot as stills and later morphed together to create a look that feels like a past memory being recalled."
