Born Ruffians Announce Spring 2013 Us Tour

Born Ruffians announce the release of their first U.S. single, "Needle," off their forthcoming album, Birthmarks. Pitchfork premiered the track today saying, "...Born Ruffians make music with such conviction that it's also hard not to sing along". Luke Lalonde says of the track, "The beauty of anonymity is basically the subject of 'Needle.' The song mostly centers around the 'needle in the hay' as a thing. I think 'Needle' and some other songs on Birthmarks are self-reflexive as far as my life and identity as a musician in a band. 'Needle,' to me, is really about being out of the game for a bit and losing touch with that identity in a good way. I think moving through your mid-twenties and not really doing what other people your age might be doing, or what a lot of people my age feel like they should be doing - like a PhD, or buying a house, or having a real job with a salary and benefits - is a bit like the needle falling through the haystack and losing the more youthful 'the world is my oyster' feeling. It's about finding a way to belong in the landscape of music and also just in my life." The digital single is available for sale now at all digital providers including iTunes and Amazon.
