Rubylux sign to Sony Red for North America
British rock/pop band Rubylux announce that they have signed a North American record deal with the Sony/RED distributed Red River Entertainment label. The Brighton-based band will be joining a roster that includes Mumford & Sons, Chvrches and Phoenix.
Rubylux are delighted with the signing, saying “It’s a very exciting time for us and we’re thrilled with the plans that are currently in the works to promote our new album ‘The World Goes Quiet’ in America.”
Red River Entertainment founder Bob Frank shares in the band's enthusiasm, stating: “We can’t wait to get started with the band. They are an incredibly talented unit with tremendous potential and great songs”
American TV viewers are already familiar with the band’s music which has been used in primetime shows including NBC’s Heroes. Plans include support tours in early 2014 with the release of ‘The World Goes Quiet’ slated for spring 2014. “We've only ever made short trips to Los Angeles before now, so to be able to tour the USA more extensively really would be a great opportunity for us” adds the band.
‘The World Goes Quiet’ is released on September 23rd on Luxury-B Records in the UK. Known for their guerrilla gigs across the UK and having sold out tours in Vietnam, Australia, Germany and America the four-piece have been performing at festivals throughout the summer. Recently, at Kendal Calling, blues-man Seasick Steve watched the band’s performance and during his own set announced to the crowd that Rubylux are the ones to watch.
Rubylux - singer and guitarist Rob Irving, bassist Clark Coslett-Hughes, keyboard player Adam Harris and drummer Mike Hall - were recently announced as the Music Ambassadors for Soccerex – joining some big names in football such as Michael Owen and Neymar, the band are the company’s first musicians to take on the role. They will travel to Rio later this year to perform at their Global Football Festival on Copacabana beach, as well as performing at Soccerex’s other famous social evening events which football’s most senior decision makers attend.
