PREMIERE: Born Ruffians – Fade to Black

Born Ruffians could be considered stalwarts of the indie-rock scene after first bursting through with the Toronto scene back in 2006 alongside bands like Broken Social Scene and the Hidden Cameras. Releasing their fifth album Uncle, Duke & The Chief earlier this year, TMB is excited to premiere the video for one of the standout cuts ‘Fade To Black’.

The track sees the trio harking back to recording practices of old and finding humanity in their mistakes. Twisting this new-found garage rock ethos to fit their Beach Boys harmonies, the video matches lo-fi tour footage to the track’s playful punky attitude. Sweetening the formula perfected by surf punks Wavves and FIDLAR, the Canadian 3-piece bring the glee to the UK next week.

The new video premieres below alongside tour details.
