The band’s nationally recognised presence is also evident through their many Australian tours and festival appearances over the years. However, this year’s 0202 tour isn’t like the others.
The Rubens recently released their newest album 0202, which has given them the freedom to find their new and upgraded sound. The boys used the COVID-19 lockdown as a positive experience, writing and producing music that means something to them.
0202, an honest acknowledgement of the pandemic and the year 2020, is a mix of old sounds and new and results from the band’s ability to write music without time restraints or industry pressures.
Unfortunately, the 0202 tour was rescheduled around the country several times due to COVID-19, but the long-awaited Canberra show was able to go ahead.
