The Rubens Announce ‘Never Be The Same’ National Tour, April 2013

Written by Marc Zanotti on February 26, 2013

Sydney quartet The Rubens have announced an extensive national tour behind their latest single, Never Be The Same. In a country overflowing with quality indie rock bands, The Rubens are quickly moving to the top of the stack behind a staggering collection of singles, all lifted from their debut self-titled album. Now, off the back of their latest effort, Never Be The Same, The Rubens are hitting the road for a little over 5 weeks during April and May and leaving no corner of Australia unturned on their largest tour yet.

Lay It Down, for which the band recently released a new music video, My Gun and The Best We Got have all left their own indelible impact on the national airwaves. Each single functions as an entity unto its own while at the same time melding into the overall excellence of The Rubens’ chart-topping debut and now the fourth single from the record, Never Be The Same, continues to keep The Rubens’ streak of hits alive.

Music Feeds recently caught up with The Rubens at St. Jeromes Laneway Festival and talked about covering The Roots with the help of Urthboy, playing in the rain, signing to Warner in Europe and America, and what’s to come in 2013. You can check out the interview and tour dates below.

UPDATE: 25/03/13

Due to popular demand The Rubens have added 3 new shows to their massive national tour. The Tivoli in Brisbane, Melbourne’s Forum Theatre and The Metro in Sydney will each get a second does of The Rubens, with the original dates at each venue now being sold out.
