Touring as a band for the first time since 2012, The Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival is very proud to present the kings of literate rock, Richmond Fontaine, with their astounding new album YOU CAN’T GO BACK IF THERE’S NOTHING TO GO BACK TO.
The album sees the band at its best. From the epic A Night in the City to the pared-down, acoustic Three Brothers Roll into Town, to Dan Eccle’s inspired guitar work on Don’t Skip Out on Me, RF again has produced a wealth of beautifully executed story songs, the like of which is rarely matched in today’s musical landscape.
Richmond Fontaine rose to fame in 2004 off the back of their 5th album Post To Wire which went on to sell over 20,000 copies and earned them Album of the Month in UNCUT again happening the following year with The Fitzgerald.
The press snowballed with those and the following three albums which saw the band playing Green Man, Primavera, End of the Road Festivals while building a loyal following over the last 11 years.
