The Rubens to Tour With Grouplove This Fall
Tue, 06 Aug 2013 17:15:46
Australian rock quartet The Rubens –which makes us think of the sandwich and of Pee Wee Herman's alter ego-- will hit the road for a fall U.S. tour with their Warner Music Group labelmates Grouplove in September.
The Rubens' self-titled debut album, which was recorded in New York City with producer David Kahne (Paul McCartney, The Strokes, Regina Spektor), will be released in the U.S. on September 10, just in time for their coast-to-coast tour.
The Rubens, who are brothers Sam Margin (vocals/guitar), Elliott Margin (keyboards), and Zaac Margin (guitar), plus their longtime friend Scott Baldwin (drums), hail from the tiny rural town of Menangle in New South Wales (pop. 327).
Since forming in 2011, they have gone from being total unknowns to enjoying strong support from Australia's influential radio station Triple J and playing the main stage at one of Australia's biggest music festivals, Splendour in the Grass, alongside Jack White and Bloc Party.
