The Rural Alberta Advantage – “Terrified”

Canadian indie rockers the Rural Alberta Advantage have announced their highly anticipated third album, their first since 2011. “Terrified” is the first single off the album, and it’s everything this fan hoped it would be, delivering that exuberant sadness that’s so prevalent in the RAA’s music. It sounds like it should be scoring the love montage in an indie film, unapologetically proclaiming that love is quite awesome, but also quite scary, you know? The RAA know. Check out the single and tour dates below.

Mended With Gold is out 9/30 on Saddle Creek and is available for preorder on iTunes.
