Australian Artist Spotlight: The Rubens

The Rubens newest single ‘Heavy Weather’ is bursting with colossal hooks that are bound to stay in your head for days. ‘Heavy Weather’ is all about empowerment; an anthem reminding us all to take control of the inner critic and back yourself when times get tough.

It followed the band’s recent hit, ‘Live In Life’, now certified GOLD and with a combined 15 million+ streams. Peaking at #21 on the ARIA Singles Chart, ‘Live In Life’ was hugely embraced by fans, radio & streaming services, with notable highlights including ATB adds across HIT Melbourne, Brisbane & Regional network, ATB on Triple M Sydney & Melbourne, NOVA Nights plus #1 most played on triple j. The track also saw the band retain the #1 position on Spotify’s Hot Hits Australia playlist for four weeks (and grace the cover) as well as top 5 positioning on Apple Music’s Today’s Hits.

‘Live In Life’ followed 2019 standalone 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 and live at this year’s Splendour in the Grass to a packed Amphitheatre at sunset. The single received high rotation airplay on triple j and incredible playlisting across Spotify & Apple Music.

2019 also saw The Rubens travel to North America, UK & Europe for headline tours, perform and release their MTV Unplugged Live In Melbourne album, launch their Chucka Buckas initiative + bunker down to write and focus on new music.

2018 proved to be a landmark year for The Rubens, which saw the release of their third album LO LA RU, including hits ‘Never Ever feat. Sarah’ (2 x Platinum), ‘Million Man’ (Gold) and ‘God Forgot’, a mammoth headline tour across Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Europe and supporting P!NK on her massive 42-date sell out arena tour of Australia and New Zealand.
