Angels & Airwaves member (and Nine Inch Nails drummer) Ilan Rubin is serving double duty this fall. As frontman of new rock act The New Regime, he’ll be filling the direct support slot on Angels & Airwaves’ North American fall tour. The multi-instrumentalist–also known for a successful stint with Paramore, as well as work with Beck, M83 and more–will be releasing new music to coincide with the trek. The tour runs from September 4th in Tempe, AZ and wraps on October 9th in Los Angeles, hitting major markets along the way such as New York City, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, and more.
“I’m looking forward to the upcoming Angels & Airwaves/The New Regime tour for many reasons. I’ll be playing new material from The New Regime’s first release on RED MUSIC and Angels will be performing for the first time in 7 years with new material as well. Doing double duty every night playing in both bands will keep everything intense and exciting,” states Rubin about the upcoming tour.
Rubin, whose young age defies the amount of work he’s already tackled, was recently called “Nine Inch Nails’ secret weapon” (Metal Injection) and “one of rock’s most in-demand drummers” (Louder). He got an early start, playing in bands and touring globally since the age of 9. Today, however, it can be argued that the multi-instrumentalist’s best work happens when this one-man-band is fronting-and backing The New Regime.
