FANS of The Rubens have praised their mu­si­cal gods with the an­nounce­ment of a na­tional tour to co­in­cide with last week’s re­lease of sec­ond al­bum

fea­tur­ing the al­ready loved track

Key­boardist El­liott Mar­gin said the re­ac­tion to the lead sin­gle had been re­ally good.

“When we played for Splen­dour (in the Grass) it was the last song of our set and it felt just amaz­ing,” he said.

“The crowd re­acted to it amaz­ingly and it just went off – I think that’s a good sign.”

Perth fans can see the five­piece band in ac­tion again next month when they kick-start their 22-date na­tional tour in WA, in­clud­ing a “high-energy” show at the As­tor Theatre on Septem­ber 18.

“It’s the start of the tour and we haven’t toured in so long,” Mar­gin said.

“We’re just re­ally keen to be out on the road again and I think it will def­i­nitely show.”

And with a new al­bum that was writ­ten with a fo­cus on how the songs would work live, Mar­gin promised the Perth show would be bet­ter than their last visit here.
