In support of their upcoming second album, Hoops, The Rubens have announced an extensive national tour up, down and around Australia later this year.
During their tour, they’ll also make appearances at the Red Earth Arts and Yours & Owls Music and Arts festivals in Karratha and Wollongong, respectively. For all other dates, The Rubens will be supported by Central Coast beachy folksters Winterbourne and the Melbourne’s indie soul outfit Saskwatch.
The Hoops tour will start in WA in September, and wind up in Darwin two months later. If you can’t wait that long, the Rubens will also be playing at Splendour in the Grass next month.
