RF_YCGBITNTGBT_ALBUM_SLEEVE_rnd2

Releasing two albums and touring with the Delines as well as penning his fourth novel (The Free), Willy Vlautin has been a busy man in the five years since Portland, Oregon’s Richmond Fontaine issued The High Country.

Set to return in 2016, the band will release its tenth album, You Can’t Go Back If There’s Nothing To Go Back To, on 18 March.

Highlighting Vlautin’s razor-fine narrative skills, absurd lead single “Wake Up, Ray” details domestic upheaval and downtrodden souls with no place to call home.

Stream “Wake Up, Ray” below and pre-order You Can’t Go Back If There’s Nothing To Go Back To on vinyl, CD and digital formats via Fluff and Gravy Records (US) or Decor Records (Europe).
