MUSIC NEWS: Rubblebucket Premieres New Chrome Sparks Remix To Celebrate Fall Tour Kickoff!

Fresh off the release of their third full-length "Survival Sounds" (out now on Communion Records), Brooklyn's current indie art pop torch-bearers Rubblebucket have released another remix of their hit single "Sound of Erasing". This remix comes by way of Brooklyn electronic artist Chrome Sparks and premiered this morning on As was the case when "Sound of Erasing" was re-imagined by The M Machine last week, the track maintains the same offbeat, summer-esque vibe and addictive hook that made the original so special while adding a decidedly different element that makes the remix a more-than-worthwhile listen in its own right.

In addition to releasing this brilliant remix, Rubblebucket will also be embarking on a full North American tour this week with help along the way from Body Language, Landlady and Royal Canoe (full dates below). The tour will be in support of their most recent release "Survival Sounds" which Paste Magazine points out puts the band's ability to "write catchy, compelling music that will make anyone with a pulse dance" on full display. The record was produced and mixed by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Modest Mouse, David Byrne) and recorded at Mission Sound Studio in Brooklyn. According to Toth, "Working with John Congleton was invigorating. He further reinforced us not over-thinking things. Be bold, make decisions, commit, go. He's also a true artist of a very high caliber and has strong convictions about things. It was cool to really absorb his spirit and aesthetic over time. I also liked that he was down to climb up onto desks, wrestle, do weird dances, and talk dirty. His messed up sense of humor fit right into the Rubblebucket social atmosphere."

Rubblebucket was formed after Kalmia Traver and Alex Toth met while attending The University of Vermont. Following graduation, the two were joined by Adam Dotson (trombone, euphonium, vocals), David Cole (Drums) and Ian Hersey (electric guitar) and released their self-titled debut in 2009. The groups second full-length, Omega La La was produced and mixed by Eric Broucek (Hercules and Love Affair, Classixx, Holy Ghost) and its single "Came Out of A Lady" was chosen as one of the Top 50 Songs of 2011 by Paste. The album was available online for free two months prior to its official release and was downloaded 50,000 times. The band made its television debut on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in 2012.  Survival Sounds is the band's label debut and comes on the heels of 2013's Save Charlie EP and 2012's Oversaturated EP.
