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.

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”

Richmond Fontaine will say farewell to Scotland with a show at The Caves in Edinburgh on October 18.

As they have clearly been one of the best acts over the past 20 years, this is bound to be a somewhat bittersweet event for their appreciative fans, currently enthralled by their final release, You Can’t Go Back If There’s Nothing To Go Back To.

Main man, Willy Vlautin has poured out a stream of well-crafted songs in album after album, all delivered with thought, passion and a huge level of spirit.

On stage, they dip and drive through sets that keep everyone wanting more.

“We will never see Richmond Fontaine again in Scotland after this gig so it will be emotional but also brilliant as they raid their catalogue of songs,” said Kevin Morris of the Fallen Angels Club, which also promoted the band’s knock-out April gig in Glasgow.

“RF retain an endearing ability to be rockers, hushed raconteurs and first-class Americana roots exponents.” ¬ AMERICANA-UK.
