While admittedly a little late to the game in posting news of this album, we're no less excited for Departing, the new album from Rural Alberta Advantage coming out March 1st on Saddle Creek. Their excellent last album Hometowns put this Canadian trio on the map, and despite their rigorous tour schedule the RAA have managed to bang out a fresh batch of songs and put them to tape for us. While we haven't heard the full album yet, the new single above "Stamp" promises more pulsing, driving, and tastefully Jeff Mangum-inflected melodic rock with tinges of harmony to round out the sound. Looking forward to it.
