The Rubens Celebrate New Album 'Lo La Ru' With A Massive Aussie Tour This November

Alternative rockers The Rubens are embarking on a massive Australian tour this November through to December off the back of the release of their third studio album 'Lo La Ru'.

November will see the band performing at Brunswick Hotel, the Gold Coast's Miami Marketta, Brisbane's The Tivoli Theatre, Sydney's Enmore Theatre, Wollongong's Uni Bar, Australian National University, Albury's SS&A Club and HQ Adelaide. They will also be killing set at this year's This That Festival.

December dates will include shows at Perth's Metropolis Fremantle, Launceston's Club 54, Hobart's The Goods Shed, Melbourne's The Forum, Cairns' Tanks Arts Centre and Darwin Entertainment Centre.

2018 has proven to be the five-piece's biggest year to date, releasing 'Lo La Ru' in June via Ivy League Records, embarking on a mammoth worldwide headline tour across Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Europe and most recently supporting P!nk on her massive 42-date sell out arena tour of Australia and New Zealand!

"Full of fun, soul-injected rock tracks." - The Music

"Pleasantly melodic, often with a good sense of groove, and tastefully recorded." - Sydney Morning Herald

"The Rubens have made a conscious effort to create something unique, beautiful, and different to what they’re used to. The result? a well-constructed album, proving they truly can do anything." - Beat

'Lo La Ru' is a bold and confident album recorded in a converted WWII bunker in the band's hometown of Camden on the outskirts of Sydney. Produced by Wilder Zoby and Little Shalimar (the co-producers of Run The Jewels 3), it pushes the band’s sound into new territory—incorporating RnB, hip-hop and soul-rock elements. Debuting at #3 on the ARIA Album Chart, the album features exuberant party jam 'Million Man', heart-wrenching hit 'Never Ever feat. Sarah' (now accredited Gold) and current track 'Freakout'.

Indie folk trio Little May will join The Rubens at all shows. Formed in Sydney in 2012, Little May dropped their debut album 'For The Company' in 2015, co-produced by Aaron Dessner of The National. With a number of standout songs including 'Boardwalks' and 'Hide', Little May are sure to enchant audiences across the tour.

The Rubens have also teamed up with triple j unearthed to select an additional opening support act in each state. Each winner will also sing the female part of The Rubens' hit song 'Never Ever feat. Sarah' on stage with the band on the night.

Don't miss The Rubens performing new tracks as well as old favourites from their back catalogue this November!
