Toronto’s The Rural Alberta Advantage will be returning to UK shores in May for a handful of dates to support the release of their long awaited sophomore album Departing. The eagerly awaited follow up to Hometowns finds the band in fine form, honing the formula that one them so many plaudits first time round.  Frontman Nils Edenloff spins songs of small town love and redemption, moving away and moving on.  The album hits on May 2nd on Saddle Creek. You can download an MP3 of ‘Stamp’ as part of next week’s Oh! Canada 15 compilation right here at TLOBF.

In the meantime the band have also unveiled a video for Stamp which you can view here:
