The Rubens announce album release & July tour dates



Following a spate of sold-out shows across the country, Sydney four-piece THE RUBENS will play four very special shows in July in support of their new single DON’T EVER WANT TO BE FOUND. The band will perform headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney before heading to Adelaide for Spin Off Festival and Byron Bay for Splendour In The Grass. Tickets to their headline shows go on sale Friday June 1 at 9am.

We are also proud to announce that THE RUBENS’ debut album will be released this September on Ivy League Records.

DON’T EVER WANT TO BE FOUND is THE RUBENS’ brand new single and was recently recorded in New York with producer David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Regina Spektor, The Strokes). THE RUBENS’ frontman and guitarist Sam Margin’s soul drenched vocals form the backbone of the track upon which his brothers Elliott, Zaac and good friend Scott Baldwin build the band’s blues heavy sound. It’s the first new music from the band since their home-recorded track LAY IT DOWN blew minds and broke hearts when it found its way onto the airwaves last year and made it to #57 in the triple j Hottest 100.

The brand new video for DON’T EVER WANT TO BE FOUND was directed by Andrew Lancaster and shot on Super 8 film in the band’s hometown of Menangle. Watch it here:

Hailing from country New South Wales and forming in early 2011, THE RUBENS have fast become one of the most exciting bands in the country. Their recent national tour was a complete sell-out across the country, including four nights at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club and three nights at Sydney’s GoodGod Small Club.

Tickets to THE RUBENSDON’T EVER WANT TO BE FOUND tour will sell FAST so don’t miss them when they go on sale.
