"On The Ropes" è il nuovo album del duo folk-rock italiano The Crowsroads, formato dai fratelli Matteo (chitarra, voce) e Andrea Corvaglia (armonica, voce). Si tratta del loro primo full-length di brani di loro composizione, dopo l'EP di canzoni originali "Some Sky Inside My Pocket" (2012) e l'album di cover e pezzi originali "Reels" (2016). Contiene dodici tracce, di cui undici totalmente inedite e una ("Every Time That You Walk Out The Door") che consiste in una nuova versione con testo riadattato in inglese dal duo del brano degli anni Settanta "Ogni volta che tu te ne vai" (F.lli La Bionda). Prodotto da Antonio Giovanni Lancini e Paolo Salvarani, arrangiato da Antonio Giovanni Lancini, registrato ai MacWave Studios di Brescia da Paolo Costola e mixato e masterizzato agli Alari Park Studios di Cernusco sul Naviglio da Lorenzo Cazzaniga, l'album vanta la partecipazione di Michele "Poncio" Belleri, Michele Bonivento, Andrea Gipponi, Antonio Giovanni Lancini, Stefania Martin e Phil Mer e tre collaborazioni esclusive con Sarah Jane Morris ("Seaweed"), Frankie Chavez ("Monologue") e Jono Manson ("The Gardener's Daughter"). Il disco è distribuito da VREC Music Label e Audioglobe ed è disponibile in versione cd, vinile (in un'edizione limitata che include alcune tracce bonus in omaggio) e digitale.
