Paper Bag Records is excited to announce the Born Ruffians' fifth studio album, Uncle, Duke & The Chief, released February 16, 2018!

Produced by Richard Swift, Uncle, Duke & The Chief is a record less concerned with what sounds hip than what feels good. In the Ruffians' case that meant shedding some of their more arty influences and reconnecting with the sounds they first heard on their parents' turntables as kids: Buddy Holly, The Everly Brothers and pre-psychedelic Beatles. "It's about going back to the deepest, most satisfying itched to scratch," says Lalonde. And in doing so, the album takes you back to a time when the Ruffians sounded less like a band and more like a gang, raising a wild ruckus and peaking in telepathic tongues.
