With just a matter of weeks before the release of their long-awaited record 0202, The Rubens have unveiled a run of album launch shows to take place across New South Wales next month.

Announced this morning, the six-date trek is set to coincide with the album’s release on February 12th, with each of the dates taking place in a completely COVID-safe manner. Beginning on February 4th, the tour will see the band performing in Bathurst, Morton, Tamworth, Dubbo, Port Macquarie, and Thirroul as part of their “intimate and local” series.

These shows are undoubtedly a long time coming for The Rubens, who were forced to twice push back a national tour in the wake of COVID-19 restrictions. Originally set to take place in May of 2020, the tour is now set to kick off in early April, with the band noting that their regional tour dates will be different to the upcoming album tour.

Tickets to the band’s upcoming NSW tour go on sale from 8am AEDT on February 1st, while a ticket and album pre-order bundle is available now to those who have not yet ordered the band’s new record.

The Rubens’ 0202 will be released on February 12th, 2021 via Ivy League Records, with pre-orders available now.
