Following their signing to Warner Brothers in the USA, The Rubens are set to be the Australian buzz band of 2013 at SXSW in Texas next month.
Last month, Mushroom Music, the group’s publisher in Australia, announced that The Rubens had signed a record deal with Warner Brothers Records for a worldwide release (excluding Australia and New Zealand) of their self-titled debut album.
The album will be released in the United States in June following a showcase by The Rubens at South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas next month.
‘The Rubens’ album was produced by David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Regina Spektor). It debuted at no. 3 in September 2012 on Australia’s ARIA chart. Their single ‘Lay It Down’ was placed at 57 on the Triple J Hottest 100 of 2011. This year ‘The Best We Got’ was no. 66 on the Hottest 100 and ‘My Gun’ was placed at no. 10.
42 Australian artists will showcase at SXSW in Austin, Texas between March 12 and 17. Over 500 Australians will travel to Austin as delegates.
