The Rural Alberta Advantage announce new album, Mended With Gold, stream “Terrified”

on July 08, 2014, 3:25pm

The Rural Alberta Advantage will release their third studio album, Mended With Gold, on September 30th via Saddle Creek. The follow-up to 2011’s Departing was co-produced by the trio’s longtime sound engineer Matt Lederman and Leon Taheny (Fucked Up, Owen Pallett).

Our first taste of the 12-track effort comes with “Terrified”, which the band debuted during a recent world tour. It’s a pulsating blast of folk rock, where acoustic guitar chords are frantically strummed while drums thrash and thump. The head-rush is then anchored by the vocal tandem of the more nasally Nils Edenloff and the soothing Amy Cole.

Listen in below:

Mended With Gold Tracklist:
01. Our Love…

03. On the Rocks
04. Terrified
05. Runners in the Night
06. To Be Scared
