'Red Moon Falls' Official video

We're proud to release the official video for our latest single 'Red Moon Falls!' We are incredibly lucky to have been introduced to a superb animator from Canada, Jonathan Ng, who has been so generous in allowing us to use his work. It was through his short film 'Requiem For Romance' that we saw the potential for a collaboration with his film and our new single. Instantly, when we put the two creations together, the song and story entwined in perfect sync and sentiment. Hit play and let us know what you think and feel free to share!

The single is available from iTunes HERE

And make sure you check out the original film 'Requiem For Romance' HERE to get an alternative version! :)

AND... if you guys love his work as much as we do, check out his limited edition art prints and DVDs HERE

Red Moon Falls

You spend your whole life looking for somebody to save you, Someone to tell you when you’re wrong, Someone to praise you when you’re strong. We spent the whole night talking to each other like strangers. How do we feel so alone, after the years that we’ve grown together?

I’m tearing down the streets again, Leaning heavy on my friends, I should have let you love me then, And this would all be over.

Honestly, there’s not much hope for me, Till the red moon falls, red moon falls, I’ll come back gracefully. Honestly, I’m not what I used to be, Till the red moon falls, red moon falls, I’ll come back gracefully.

See I was too proud, never could accept the shoulder. ‘Cause nobody knows the way we are, These bullets of love will never scar.

And if only there were demons taking us over, The reason there’s fire behind your eyes, The reason we turn away at nights and so I’m,

I’m tearing down the streets again, Leaning heavy on my friends, I should have let you love me then, And this would all be over.

Honestly, there’s not much hope for me, Till the red moon falls, red moon falls, I’ll come back gracefully. Honestly, I’m not what I used to be, Till the red moon falls, red moon falls, I’ll come back gracefully.

‘Cause I don’t feel you with me, There’s no faith to give me, I can’t find the way I used to feel your pain, I don’t feel you’re with me now.

‘Cause honestly, there’s not much hope for me, Till the red moon falls, red moon falls, And I’ll come back graceful. Honestly, there’s not much hope for me, Till the red moon falls, red moon falls, I’ll come back gracefully.

Oh, this could all be over. Oh, I should have let you love me then.

You spend your whole life looking for somebody to save you.

23rd June @ The100Club supporting 'The Last Internationale'

1006286_10152087369159951_3836296_n

If you think it's over, better think again. There'll be no compromise, turning up the power. Feel adrenaline. Move into overdrive... Here comes the revolution!!! It kicks off on Monday night in London from 8pm. We'll be playing our hardest, rawest songs to match the grit of the headline band 'The Last Internationale'. There's a real buzz around these guys... Probably because they're awesome, the drummer is from 'Rage Against The Machine', and they're on tour with The Kings Of Leon. You don't get much more cred than that!

8pm at the prestigious 'The 100 Club' in London... See us open up heavy for these rockers:

Một Hai Ba... Dzô!!! (Cheers!!!)

A week today we will make our 3rd visit to the beautiful country of Vietnam! "Must do's" on our list are as follows

- Ad must shop at least 4 times a day in the same market to buy calvin klein boxers at £1 a pair, that Clark will 'borrow' very long term. - Mike must get sun burned and be 'the little man from Chester' for a day or two, until he gets the jet lag out of him. - Rob must say he will 'eat healthy' on this trip, but have ribs or steak most nights. - Clark must remember to steal a pair of knock off boxer shorts from Ad.

Hen Gap Lai!!

The Journey

Some of you may know... some of you may not... We are very humbled by having a song off our new album THE WORLD GOES QUIET being used as the Lead Track for a film called "The Journey" www.greecethemovie.com

A while ago at one of our street gigs, some random chap walked up to our collection hat... picked it up... and walked around the gathered audience making sure that everyone popped a few quid in for the gig... That chap had a name... and that name is Lance... and that name precedes a surname... Nielsen. Lance Nielsen.

Little did we know, that Lance had a story to tell, a story so big that a film is being made about it!!

Anyway, I wont spoil the story as there's an event next week at the Roxy Bar and Screen where you can see the Trailer for The Journey yourself!!! Book a seat or a table through the facebook event page! £50 a table, that price covers entry and a bottle of chosen grog :)

Carol Jackson (Lindsay Coulson) will be there! And Jason Flemyng!! What a ledge. Both star in the film... I've had an exclusive look at the trailer... It's EPIC!

Oh... also Love Without A Cause (The song being used) has a video made from scenes from the film... WOOP! It will also be the debut live performance of the song so get your butts down and open your wallets to help out with crowdfunding this GREAT FILM!!!

Rubylux in Hamburg

Rubylux in Hamburg! We packed our beloved van named Blossom and set off on the 15 hour drive to Germany. (It should be 12 hours but we add time for car-park football and some exquisite service station food!) Throughout the journey we sang the classics, had a few brewski's and arrived at our friend Katrin's house in the early hours of the morning. The next day we woke up to the arousing aroma of waffles! (If we ever stay at your house, you know how to win our hearts!)

Soundcheck started early but the Prinzenbar venue was well worth spending some time in! Built in the 1890's, it was the first cinema in Germany and still retained a lot of original decor. That, combined with the huge German style spread laid on for us, paved the way for an amazing gig! We've only played 3 shows in Germany, so to have such an amazing audience for our own night was a great feeling.

Here's the set that we played:

You may have noticed that we have been adding lots of new songs to the setlist recently. We're nearly finished recording them but until then, you can catch a few live videos on youtube! And here is our little video diary of our trip!

We can't wait to come back again soon. Hopefully we'll do a few more shows around the country.

Lots of love,

Rubylux xxx

THAT One Direction Video...

One-Direction

Just over a week ago, we released our video online! Thanks to everyone who has already watched, commented and shared! A week later, we see that X-Factor's One Direction have released their video... And there are some glaringly obvious similarities! This is clearly just some mad coincidence, as I'm sure theirs was shot weeks, if not months back. I just thought it might be a good opportunity to talk about how we did ours...

In some ways, it is flattering that some people are drawing comparisons between the two, as the budgets for both video's would have been WORLDS apart.

Major labels tend to have a habit of spending pretty much as much as they can on their video's, and this video probably cost close to £100,000. Ours on the other hand... We found a super talented, up and coming director, who has been a close friend of ours for years. We came up with a simple idea together, and decided to start pulling in a few favours. We managed to borrow the great camper from VW Kampers, a great Brighton based company who are fans of ours! They were more than happy to help out!

In fact our biggest expense for the whole video was probably a BBQ and a few Beers for our friends and fans who attended the shoot! It's the least we could do! Our fans make up a big part of the video, and we really wanted them to be involved!

I'm not slating major record labels, but can't help but think if they took more of a DIY approach (and some are) that so many great new bands are doing (and doing brilliantly), they would be able to sign and support more up and coming talent. And not find themselves in the mess that a lot of them are in! Band's need time to grow, and spending a million quid in a year, on videos, photo-shoots etc... and then just dropping them a few months later seems like a crazy business plan for any type of company!

Anyway... Kind of a loosely related blog! In summary, we think the One Direction video looks great! Brilliant job to everyone involved! But they could have made 100 videos for the same price, and probably achieved the same great end result!!

It's no big deal for us, but we thought we'd better address the situation...

Here's both the video's in their full blown Orange Camper Van glory!

Rubylux on Fifa '12

You guys wanna help us get on the Fifa 12 soundtrack? We'd love it if you could :) Simply post the lyric video for RECONNECT LIFE found here...

*** http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBwdOV-ULNA ***

...and paste it into the comments box at the bottom of the Fifa 12 wishlist forum found here...

***http://www.fifplay.com/fifa12_soundtrack_wishlist/***

The site has to moderate your comment before posting it, so probably wont show up straight away.

Add any of our other tunes onto the wishlist if you fancy, but we think Reconnect Life is the track of Fifa '12 ;)

LA!

Hey Hey Y'aaaaaall! As you may know we're currently out in the U.S of A at a big ol' music event called MUSEXPO. We spent our first day here in Hollywood doing the tourist thang, having our picture taken by the 'HOLLYWOOD' sign, paid a visit to Santa Monica and the beach, stuffed our faces full of hearty American food, played with a Lizard, and rode along Muscle Beach on a tandem bicycle… y'know, all the usual stuff!

While out here we've also been lucky enough to meet up with one of the great inventors and scientists of our time, Professor. John Searl. Clark has a big interest in all things magnetic (Check out The SEG in Google) and has managed to get us all into it (even Mike!) So to go and meet a man who is essentially the "Einstein" of our time at his home was a great honour for all of us! Eternal thanks to Brad Lockerman and Stephanie Specht for your hospitality. X

For the last few days we have been busy checking out some other bands and meeting music industry types from all over the world. But it's now time for the real reason we're here… preparing for our huuuuuge showcase gig TONIGHT (Wednesday) at the legendary S.I.R Studio's here in Hollywood! We've been down to the venue a few times to see some other brilliant bands (Maneken, One Night Only and our good Norwegian buddies John Snow to name a few) and it's an awesome place with a nice big stage that we're very confident of rocking on!!!

We're on at 9:30pm which is 5:30am in the UK so if you're awake, think of us!
