THE Northern Folk are heading home in April to celebrate the release of their new album Watermark.
Two years since moving to Melbourne and making their last album, The Northern Folk will release their much-anticipated third album on Friday.
With their trademark dual vocals, roaring horns and diverse songwriting, the 10-piece outfit will perform at The Cube Wodonga on Saturday, April 6.
The Northern Folk vocalist Paul Dyason said the 10-track album was a collaborative effort.
"It can be a difficult process getting 10 collaborators to work together but it helps that everyone is on the same page," he said.
"A lot of us have grown up together and we're friends outside the band; we're a group of mates from Albury."
The band is made up of nine former Albury High or Xavier High School students and a trombonist from Mildura.

Dyason said the band relished the chance to perform for a home crowd.
"The crowd knows us and they've grown with us; they can see where we've come from," he said.
Watermark will be released in digital, CD and vinyl formats.
South Australian abstract artist Amber Gittins created the cover artwork.
The Wodonga show will feature special guests The Maes and Patrick Lionel.
All tickets are general admission/standing, but there will be unallocated seating.
