Los Angeles, CA (August 6, 2015) - Ilan Rubin's The New Regime has announced upcoming tour dates with Failure, who recently reunited in early 2014 after a 17-year hiatus. Multi-instrumentalist/vocalist and songwriter, Ilan Rubin is best known for his drumming with Nine Inch Nails, Angels & Airwaves and Paramore, but it can be argued that his best work happens when this one-man-band is fronting-and backing - The New Regime. Attendees of the upcoming tour will get a unique live music experience - with Rubin on guitar/vocals fronting a 3-piece band. The addition of a full band allows for a raw, dynamic representation of his music, packed with improvisations and embellishments expanding beyond the recorded material. Rubin's commanding stage presence will shock those used to seeing him behind a drum-set.
TNR released Exhibit B on March 31, 2015, which is available for purchase via iTunes. Catch him on tour with Failure from August 18th- 31st. For up-to-date information, please visit: http://www.thenewregime.com/.
Exhibit B is the name of the New Regime's new eight-song EP, which Rubin wrote and recorded almost entirely while touring with NIN in 2013-14. And it was on that tour that Rubin got to stretch his wings onstage as well. "When I first toured with Nine Inch Nails in 2009, Trent knew that I could play piano, so wherever there was a piano part, I would take it over," he says. "On the last tour, the band was down to a four-piece, so we needed to distribute parts as best we could. There were a lot of moments when I played bass and guitar and some keyboards. And I think that was a big help in getting people to see a bit more of what I'm about as a musician."
Given what his night job was at the time, you might expect the results of his day-lighting to sound Trent-influenced. Perhaps you'll find some of that in there, but you may be more immediately struck by the old-school classicism of Rubin's approach. Singles"Strong-Arm Tomorrow," "Where I've Headed All Along," "Mannequin" and "We, Rise, We Fall" can be streamed on Yahoo! , Entertainment Weekly, Kerrang! and Alternative Press, respectively.
Rubin recently topped the charts as Tom DeLonge's collaborator in Angels & Airwaves' The Dream Walker. Released this past December, The Dream Walker hit No. 3 on Billboard's Top Indie Album Chart and No. 5 on the Alternative Chart. It also went to No. 1 on iTunes in 14 countries. Additionally, he recently played drums on the Haim/M83 Insurgenttrack, "Holes In The Sky."
