Biography

Birmingham, United Kingdom (2010 – present)

Rubicava formed near Birmingham in January 2010 out of the ashes of the recently disbanded Dead Letter Office. Initially set up with six members, this quickly became four which has remained the lineup since.

After a couple of months gelling and preparing for gigs, an unfortunate set of circumstances threatened to break apart the band before it had really got going. An injury to drummer Karen Jones meant that it was not possible to continue for at least a time period of at least 6 months.

Adament not to let it break them, they took the time to step back and write a large number of new sounds and really find their sound.

After much thought, discussion and deliberation the band and Karen parted ways on good terms in October 2010. Shortly after Matt Bennett came in on drums.

The band spent the remainer of 2010 and the first six months of 2011 honing their sound, writing and gigging. Midway through 2011 the band recorded a 5 track live EP which was released for free online to fans and loyal followers.

In the dying months of 2011, the band began working on self recording their debut album was due for release in Q1 of 2012.

The bands first album, Get Well Soon, was released May 2012 and the initial pressing sold out within weeks.

On the 20th August 2012 the band released their second single “No More Dreamers” for free as a thank you to all fans.
