Rubikon Return After Four Years To “Record” Latest Rock Tale

The Record, Rubikon’s first new album in four years, comes out September 16 via Round Hill Records. Singer Jae Sims says the outfit aim to restore a “little organic humanity” back into music.

Rubikon’s last album Delta spawned the Top 40 active Rock single “Live That Lie,” and with The Record one can expect a musical hybrid infused in their deceptively straight ahead rock approach.



“There’s nothing like locking the band in a room and refusing to come out until we’ve got a bunch of tunes to share with the world,” said guitarist Dave Raymond. “We bounced a wide range of ideas off of each other this time around – hard rock, of course, but also more classic-sounding rock. Americana, folk, nothing was off the table – and we are pumped about the album that came out of that process.”

To record the album, the band (also consisting of guitarist Josh Gruss, bassist Hugh Eaton, and drummer/singer Doug Arsham) gathered at Nashville’s Sienna Studios and collaborated with engineer-mixer Tim Brennan (Steven Tyler, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Gretchen Wilson). Guest musicians on The Record include Elisha Hoffman (mandolin, banjo, acoustic guitar), Drew Belk (pedal steel), and Randy Leago (saxophone).

One of the songs featured on the album is “Blood On My Hands,” and it’s hook laden catchy rocker that has me excited for what’s to come:
