After bringing the summer vibes to Shoal Bay Country Club in January, indie rockers The Rubens are heading back to our part of the world on their biggest tour to date.
The My Gun hitmakers will play the Bar On The Hill on Friday 5 June in a massive 27-date national tour taking in both metro and regional centers.
The tour is in celebration of the band’s cracking summer anthem Live In Life which has been going great guns since its November 2019 release.
The track has been hugely embraced by fans across Spotify and Apple Music, totalling over 7.5 million streams, and generating more than 100,000 Shazams in Australia alone.
Live In Life blends The Rubens’ signature hooky choruses with a shadowy undertone. It follows a guy over the course of one night as he comes to terms with the gravity of a relationship breakdown.
It follows on from the recent single Falling Asleep At The Wheel, a collaboration with US punk-hip hop start Vic Mensa, which was premiered by Zane Lowe on Beats 1.
Thie last 12 months have also seen The Rubens travel to North America, UK & Europe for headline tours, perform and release their MTV Unplugged Live In Melbourne album.
This follows from a hugely successful 2018 for the Rubens that saw the band release its third studio album Lo La Ru which nabbed an ARIA top five slot, as well as supporting Pink on her 46-date Australian tour.
Catch The Rubens when they play The Bar On The Hill on Friday 5 June. Get your tickets here.
