‘Heart Mind Body & Soul’ by The New Regime, IIan Rubin’s latest solo project, is being released on 6th March 2020. You will know Rubin from having drummed for Nine Inch Nails and Airwaves. He has also recorded drums on Grammy award winning albums such as Paramore’s self-titled album and Beck’s album ‘Colors’. You can also find Rubin in the Guinness Book of World records for being the youngest musician ever to play on a Woodstock Stage at just 11-years-old! During his career he has toured with bands such as The Killers, Muse, Alice In Chains, The Used, The Joy Formidable and Nine Inch Nails. Rather than dropping the new album in one go, The New Regime is releasing it in four parts. Three EP’s composed of four songs in which Rubin performed every instrument are already available for you to enjoy.
The full album ‘Heart Mind Body & Soul’ is an album you could dance to or just listen and enjoy all of the sounds put together. It’s upbeat with very clean vocals combined with the melody of every instrument played. The album is full of catchy tunes, harmonies, slower songs and some backing vocals. There are some rock music vibes throughout ‘Heart Mind Body & Soul’ but overall it has an alternative pop feel to it. The variety of instruments including the keyboard gives the songs a modern sound mixed with lyrics listeners can relate to thus giving the album diversity. You will be able to listen to the album in its entirety on 6th March. You can also catch the New Regime on their current US tour with Silversun Pickups.
