The Rubens have once again pushed back their upcoming trek of the country, announcing that their “Live in Life” tour will now take place from April of 2021.
First announced back in late February, The Rubens had planned to hit the road in mid-May, with the extensive tour of the country keeping them busy until the middle of July. Unfortunately, the announcement came just weeks before COVID-19 restrictions not only hampered recording plans, but made their tour impossible to go through with.
In early May, the group announced new dates, with the “Live in Life” tour now set to kick off in mid-September. However, even these rescheduled shows have been put on hold, with the group once again revealing a new set of dates, with the tour now set to to begin in April of 2021.
Supported by Alice Ivy, tickets to these new dates are available now, with the group urging fans to hold onto their tickets if they can.
To complement the news of the rescheduled tour, The Rubens have also shared their Live In Life Remix EP, which features reworked versions of the title track from NASAYA, Pink Skies, Father Bobby Townsend, and Alice Ivy.
“We’ve been blown away with the response to our track ‘Live In Life’, both online and the few times we got to play it live for you,” the group explained in a statement.
“For obvious reasons, unfortunately we have to reschedule the ‘Live In Life’ tour again, but as a show of thanks for your ongoing support we enlisted the help of Alice Ivy (our main support for the Live in Life Tour) for a remix, as well as alternate versions from Father Bobby Townsend, NASAYA and Pink Skies.
“Hold on to your tickets if you can, as these new rescheduled dates may just become an album tour….in the meantime, blast these remixes and look after each other.”
The Rubens’ Live in Life Remix EP is available now via Ivy League Records.
