The Ontario-based four-piece Born Ruffians released their third album, Birthmarks via Yep Roc on April 16th and Paper Bag Records in Canada. The twelve-track album was written and demoed over the past three years and was produced by Roger Leavens at Boombox Sound in Toronto.

A key ingredient to the creation of Birthmarks was a remote farmhouse in rural Ontario. The band wanted to return to the days spent writing their debut, Red, Yellow & Blue when they lived together and "whenever we had an idea we could work it out right there that moment." While some of Birthmarks was born on the farm, many of the songs were conceived long before. Luke Lalonde would write and demo constantly on his laptop, at home and on tour: Toronto, Montreal, Midland, Australia, France, Germany… everywhere. Several songs were realized during the recording process in the studio.
