The Rubens have returned with a brand new, groove-fuelled AU & NZ Tour

Aussie alt-rock favourites The Rubens have returned with a brand new, groove-fuelled single ‘Million Man’ and today we’re thrilled to reveal the five-piece hailing from Menangle in NSW will bring their soulful tunes to life for Australian and New Zealand audiences this February and March.

Late last week The Rubens announced a colossal worldwide tour which, it has now been revealed, will now kick off with two special performances in New Zealand before returning to Australia for an East Coast headline tour, and then venturing to the United States and Europe.

Comprised of three Margin brothers, Zaac (lead guitar), Elliott (keyboards, vocals) and Sam (lead vocals, guitar) alongside friends Scott Baldwin (drums) and William Zeglis (bass), The Rubens’ two albums have been met with immense success with a third slated for release in 2018.

‘Million Man’ is the first taste of The Rubens’ highly anticipated third LP; accompanied by a music video shot in New York and premiered with Billboard. Teaming up with Run The Jewels producers/collaborators and brothers Wilder Zoby and Little Shalimar (AKA Torbitt Schwartz), The Rubens recorded the album in a newly created studio, a World War II communications bunker in the outskirts of Camden in Sydney’s deep South West and have just returned home from NYC where they put the final touches on the album.

Capturing attention with their 2012 self-titled debut album, The Rubens’ unique brand of bluesy rock – highlighted in singles ‘Lay It Down’, ‘My Gun’ and ‘Elvis’ – paved the road for the band and led to their LP reaching #3 on the ARIA Album Chart as well as receiving Platinum certification.

2015’s follow-up release Hoops saw The Rubens cram gritty guitars, foot-stomping rhythms and Sam Margin’s signature blues vocals that ooze country town swag into an epic round two of rock’n’roll tunes. Peaking at #2 on the ARIA Album Chart, Hoops was certified Gold with the band taking out the #1 spot on the triple j hottest 100 for the title track.

Don’t miss your chance to see Aussie favourites The Rubens this summer performing their biggest rock anthems. Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney fans are encouraged to act quickly in securing their tickets. Tickets are on sale Monday 11 December, don’t miss out!
