Published Jan 14, 2020Born Ruffians are coming back with a new album. The record is called JUICE and will arrive on April 3 via the Ontario band's own label Wavy Haze Records in Canada and Yep Roc Records elsewhere.
Already, we've been hit with the first single "I Fall in Love Every Night," which has arrived alongside a new video.
In a statement, Born Ruffians' Luke Lalonde explained of the track:
When the darkness isn't fully engrossing me, I feel very fortunate for the world we live in and the people I have in my life. It's easy for me (and I think for a lot of people) to take things for granted. There's a constant narrative I've noticed being pushed that the world is a big, mean, scary place. We're constantly being drilled by bad news, perpetual fear. You can forget how beautiful the world is and you can forget to even notice the person right next to you... I'm feeling a renewed sense of love not only in my relationships but with the world in general. There is an overwhelming amount of love in the world, you just have to focus on it every once in a while.
Watch the video for "I Fall in Love Every Night" below.
JUICE stands as the sixth Born Ruffians album and their first since 2018's Uncle, Duke and the Chief. Lalonde also released the solo album The Perpetual Optimist in 2019.
