Born Ruffians play at Lucky Bar March 19.

Canadian indie rock band Born Ruffians gave fans a taste of their new material on New Years Day when they posted a stream of their new song With Her Shadow.

The Ontario-based four-piece is now excited to reveal details of its upcoming third full length album, Birthmarks, which will be released on April 16, including the tune Needle which they posted on soundcloud last month.

The album was written and demoed over the past three years and  produced by Roger Leavens at Boombox Sound in Toronto.

Born Ruffians begin a year-long tour of Canada and the U.S. in support of the album with a March 19 show at Lucky Bar, 517 Yates St. Tickets are $18 and are available at ticketweb.ca.
