gearing up…
September 4, 2011

The new record, The High Country, is all wrapped up and ready to go. Release dates are: September 5 in the UK & Europe, and September 20 in the US. (Psst, if you’re a superfan and must have it now, you can buy it on the RF site. Early reviews have been great! Uncut gave it 4 stars and Americana Album of the Month, Q Magazine gave it 4 stars, and the Irish Times 5 stars. Forget your preconceived notions about concept records… The High Country actually makes sense! And musically, it’s a whopper.

Willy and the RF boys are gearing up for The High Country tour overseas. But first, they’re plaing two shows in Portland this week for Music Fest NW. Amy Boone (The Damnations) will be along for these gigs, singing The Girl parts from The High Country, and playing keyboards. See the events page for dates.
