Richmond Fontaine’s new and final album You Can’t Go Back, If There’s Nothing To Go Back To is now out and available on Decor Records and Fluff and Gravy. I’ve only listened to it a few times, but it’s already safe to say that they are going out with a bang. The High Country was good, but perhaps a little too challenging for my limited taste. This new one on the other hand. Oh my. This sounds absolutely brilliant and I can’t get wait to get fully drawn into these songs and stories during the coming days/weeks. Richmond Fontaine is one of the very best bands of the last twenty years and will be greatly missed. However, when it’s time to step aside, this is a magnificent way to do it. Release a 5 hearts out of 5 record and go on a tour to support it.
Thankfully Richmond Fontaine’s final tour will reach Finnish shores as well. They will be here in a few weeks time. These are duo concerts, but I’m still sure that these are going to be something very special. The Finland dates are these:
Richmond Fontaine (duo) + Fernando Finland tour.
5.4 – Helsinki, FI – Korjaamo
6.4 – Tampere, FI – Telakka
7.4 – Turku, FI – Gong
