Toronto trio The Rural Alberta Advantage returned this year with their fourth album The Wild, which was released in October via Paper Bag Records. On November 4 the band returned to Bowery Ballroom for a performance in support of the new record (they also played at Rough Trade NYC the night before).

They gave us a 22-song set that featured new material mixed with all the expected fan favorites that had the entire Bowery Ballroom singing along throughout the entire show. The band’s recorded material is good, but seeing them live really reveals the full power and emotional connection that the band just do with so much authenticity.
