Former Nine Inch Nails and LostProphets drummer Ilan Rubin is set to bring his alt-rock project The New Regime to the UK next month for a string of dates with Taking Back Sunday.
A free download of the single ‘State Of Possession’, taken from the debut album ‘Speak Through The White Noise’ is available here: http://soundcloud.com/thenewregime/07-state-of-possession.
A live video for the track can be viewed below.
Only 22 years old, Rubin has been involved in the music industry for most of his life, picking up the drums at 8, and in quick succession mastering the guitar, bass and piano. Armed with a veritable musical arsenal, Rubin was content to cut his teeth playing drums in numerous outfits, including stints drumming for Welsh rock act Lostprophets and industrial rock pioneers Nine Inch Nails, which he credits working with a musician, Trent Reznor, whose precision and discipline complemented his own. “When I joined the band, I finally felt like, ‘Yes, this is the kind of organisation I want to be a part of.’ A lot of work, and a lot of making everything perfect,” Rubin says of the experience.
Currently on tour in the States with Taking Back Sunday and Thursday, The New Regime is spearheading a new musical revolution, which is heading for UK shores in August 2011.
