The Rubens announce national tour dates & new single ‘My Gun’



MY GUN is the brand new single from Menangle wunderkinds THE RUBENS. Recorded in NYC with Grammy Award winning producer David Kahne, MY GUN is a shining example of why The Rubens have managed so effortlessly to connect with audiences around the nation. A blend of frontman Sam Margin’s soul-drenched vocals with steadfast blues swagger, MY GUN has already proven to be a favourite with fans, being a highlight at the band’s recent sold out live shows.

MY GUN follows on from radio favourite DON’T EVER WANT TO BE FOUND and is another tasty morsel off the band’s forthcoming debut, self-titled album out 14 September.

THE RUBENS have had a dream run since forming in early 2011. After their home recorded demo of LAY IT DOWN found its way to #57 on the triple j Hottest 100 poll for 2011, the band went on to sell out their debut national headline tour (including 4 x Northcote Social Club shows & 3 x Good God shows) and sell out their DON’T EVER WANT TO BE FOUND shows in July (2 x Oxford Art Factory shows & 2 x Corner Hotel). The band also proved to be a highlight at this year’s Splendour In The Grass Festival, packing the GW McLennan stage to the brim, despite their earlier time slot.

With no signs of slowing up, THE RUBENS are pleased to announce they will be touring the nation in celebration of their debut album this September/October. If you haven’t already seen THE RUBENS live, it’s time to see why they’re being touted as one of the most exciting bands to come out of our fair nation in quite some time.
