Ivy League Records is proud to release ‘Time Of My Life’, the powerful new single from Menangle’s favourite sons, The Rubens.
Listen to ‘Time Of My Life’ HERE
A song full of hopeful introspection and boasting one of the biggest hooks in the band’s catalogue to date, ‘Time Of My Life’ finds the band musing over the ramifications of time and perspective – the dance between ‘what could’ve been’ and ‘what still could be’, ultimately choosing to overcome fear and embrace the future for all its unknowns, a sentiment that feels particularly timely to the five-piece:
“We wrote this track in a much simpler time, yet the hopefulness of this song feels so relevant and important to right now. Our inbox has been flooded by young people (particularly those about to graduate year 12) feeling really confused and apprehensive about the future, when this should be the time of their lives – so we hope this song helps those people feel heard, supported and inspired knowing there’s still so much to come and to look forward to.” – The Rubens.
‘Time Of My Life’ follows recent singles ‘Heavy Weather’ and the band’s summer hit, ‘Live In Life’ – now certified Double Platinum! Undeniably one of the biggest domestic singles of the last 12 months, ‘Live In Life’ has amassed 30+ million streams across platforms, spent close to two months in the top 3 of Spotify’s Hot Hits Australia playlist, including 3 weeks at #1 and has become a staple of the playlist over the last 8 months. ‘Live in Life’ has also spent 8 months on Apple Music’s Todays Hits and has been Shazamed 100,000+ times in Australia alone.
The second postponement of the band’s ‘Live In Life’ tour, their biggest headline tour to date, was announced last month due to COVID-19 (originally scheduled from May – July, then Sept – Dec). The new dates, taking place from April – June, 2021, will see the NSW band play metro cities for the first time since their 2018 LO LA RU album shows, across venues such as Fortitude Music Hall (Bris), Freo.Social (Freo), The Forum (Melb), and the Enmore Theatre (Syd). After having embarked on 3 regional tours in the past 18 months, the band will be revisiting some old regional favourites as well as some towns they’ve never played before, including Bundaberg, Warrnambool, Shepparton and more.
Stay tuned for more incredibly exciting news from The Rubens.
