The king of covers
January 27th, 2011
Toronto’s Born Ruffians must be itchin’ to hit the road, because they’ve just announced a Canadian tour that will see them go from coast to coast.
The plucky four-piece will embark on an 18-date tour in support of last year’s album, Say It. Beginning in Victoria, BC, the band will stop off in seven provinces, ending in Halifax, NS. Opening the first leg of the tour will be the all-female Weezer cover band Sheezer, while Owen Sound’s First Rate People, who featured Ruffians’ frontman Luke Lalonde on last year’s single “Gentleman’s Club,” will take over from Peterborough onwards.
In other Born Ruffians news, the band have released a new video for the album’s third single, “The Ballad of Moose Bruce,” which received its world premiere last night on The Wedge. Starring pro wrestler Chris Hero, the video was shot with an Olympus I-Speed 3 camera, which captures 2000 frames per second. You can watch it below.
