Stream Born Ruffians’ ‘When Things Get Pointless I Roll Away’ for Free

Born Ruffians have shared a free stream of ‘When Things Get Pointless I Roll Away’ from their forthcoming album RUFF, out on October 2 on Paper Bag Records.

The band had this to say about the track in a statement; “The second half of the track was improvised in the studio unexpectedly. Luke (Lalonde; guitarist and vocalist) was testing out vocal sounds and repeating the words “on and on and on and on”, which actually is the name of another song on the record (the one that coincidentally follows ‘When Things Get Pointless I Roll Away’). It was a rare, unique studio moment that led to the very atmospheric, moving feel of that vocal line. You can’t plan everything that’s going to happen when you make a record; sometimes the most interesting moments just happen organically.”

The new album finds Born Ruffians exploring self and aesthetics. It represents both a return to form and departure from convention. It’s a culmination and a disassembly of the band’s sound.

RUFF was written over the course of two years starting in 2013, some songs were even written in a few days or in a single band practice. They recorded the album with Jeff McMurrich over the course of three weeks and once again turned to Rusty Santos to produce the 11 track effort.
