Rubblebucket Comes to NYC at the Mercury Lounge Tonight

Rubblebucket will be playing tonight, August 26 at NYC's Mercury Lounge, followed by Rough Trade on August 27, supporting their new album Survival Sounds, out on August 26 on Communion Records.

Rubblebucket announces 35 date fall tour in support of Survival Sounds. SPIN recently premiered Survival Sounds' first pre-release track, "Sound of Erasing." "The track's ska guitars build over glitchy sonics," says SPIN of the song, "and finally erupt into an tropical-friendly crescendo." Listen to "Sound of Erasing" via SPIN HERE and via Soundcloud HERE. The record is the band's label debut and comes on the heels of 2013's Save Charlie EP and 2012's Oversaturated EP. See full tour dates below!

Survival Sounds was produced and mixed by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Modest Mouse, David Byrne) and recorded at Mission Sound Studio in Brooklyn. According to Traver, "This is by far the longest project we've ever worked on. For various reasons we were able to hit our stride as a group and settle into functional creative roles...We pushed ourselves creatively, really worked to create lyrics that were the most meaningful, arrangements that hit the hardest and sounds that were the most clarion."

Rubblebucket was formed after the Kalmia Traver and Alex Toth met while attending The University of Vermont. Following graduation, the two were joined by Adam Dotson (trombone), David Cole (Drums) and Ian Hersey (electric guitar), and released their self-titled debut in 2009. The groups second full-length, Omega La La was produced and mixed by Eric Broucek (Hercules and Love Affair, Classixx, Holy Ghost) and its single "Came Out of A Lady" was chosen as one of the Top 50 Songs of 2011 by Paste. The album was available online for free two months prior to its official release and was downloaded 50,000 times. The band made its television debut on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in 2012. .
