Sydney’s raw-power Ruby Fields has announced a national in support of her upcoming EP, Permanent Hermit. 2018 was a massive year for the young-gun, releasing her debut EP and taking her blistering live show around the country.
2019 has already kicked off to a huge start, with Ruby stunning audiences around the country during her debut Laneway Festival run – it’s fair to say Ruby will take a fair share of Aussie rock’s reigns this year.
The EP is set for a release in early May and features six new songs, as well as the nostalgic, slow-burning anthem ‘Dinosaurs’, which nabbed the #8 spot on this year’s Hottest 100. Permanent Hermit comes after Ruby’s debut EP Your Dad’s Opinion For Dinner, released in March 2018, that showcased the Cronulla native’s knack for hook-laden grunge pop and heart-on-your-sleeve songwriting.
Ruby will embark on her biggest headline shows to date, with celebrations kicking off at Brisbane’s Brightside on May 17th and ending with a show at Hobart’s Republic Bar on June 8th.
The first single released off Permenant Hermit will be ‘Climate’ which Ruby describes as being a “happier song”.
“It’s been a heavy year for myself and the band, hence the release of ‘Dinosaurs’, and one of the only things that pulls our heads up is time away whether it’s camping together or going for dinner at a pub, or just talking to each other. It’s a happier song and I think we all needed a bit of that,” said Ruby.
“Insanely keen to get back on road for a proper tour with heaps of new songs and EP coming very soon!! Been a huge year already with Hottest 100, Like A Version and Laneway shows and can’t wait to crack on. Come watch a few eternally average losers and have a few with us,” said Ruby reflecting on her insane 2018.
Tickets go on sale Friday 20th of February at 9 am.
