Born Ruffians Roll Out New Song "Wavy Haze"
The 'JUICE' track reflects on the band's early years living in Toronto
Published Mar 10, 2020Born Ruffians are gearing up to release new album JUICE through their very own Wavy Haze Records next month, and the band have now dropped off a single that shares a name with their new label.
"Wavy Haze," which you can hear below, is a reflection on the band's early years living in Toronto and the feelings that accompanied the time period.
"I moved to Toronto when I was 19, after high school," guitarist/vocalist Luke Lalonde recalled in a statement. "As a band we all lived together in a house in Parkdale — Mitch, Steve and I with our friend Joel. I remember stacks of beers (Brava, Sol, and Labatt's 50) jamming in the basement, writing in my bedroom, lots of anxiety and stuff going around me then too."
He continued: "I know I was mostly miserable at the time but I remember it fondly. The song's lyrics came from that juxtaposition, and from looking back with a mix of longing, loss, relief, regret, and growth through this wavy haze of memory hovering around."
JUICE arrives April 3 through Wavy Haze Records/Yep Roc Records. Last month, the band also shared a video for "Dedication."
