The wonderful Richmond Fontaine are heading to Glasgow in April 2016 a month after their 10th album, You Can’t Go Back if There’s Nothing To Back To” is released.

They will play the Art School on Wednesday, April 27 – and it will be the first time since 2012 that this hugely talented, highly literate and widely acclaimed bunch of musicians will have hit the road as a whole band as other projects have been undertaken in that time.

And the word is that once again, Willy Vlautin and his mates have produced a wealth of beautifully executed story songs on the new album, the likes of which are rarely matched in today’s musical landscape.

Their songs are raw, thoughtful and played with inspiration and devotion, as anyone who has listened to any of their previous albums or seen them live will testify.

A major draw in the land of Americana and beyond, we are delighted they can come to Glasgow again.

“…one of their genre’s premier attractions.” BBC Music online.

Fernando ’s new album ‘Leave The Radio On’ is 3 years in the making, a virtual who’s who of Portland Oregon’s finest musicians, including Peter Buck (on 8 tracks) and Scott McCaughey of REM, Sarabeth Tucek as well as members of M.Ward, Elliott Smith, Richmond Fontaine/The Delines bands.

Willy Vlautin of Richmond Fontaine says “Pacific Northwest legend, Fernando has made the best record of his life. One of my all time favorite singer-songwriters”
