Calgary-based band Reuben and the Dark have announced that their new album, Arms Of A Dream, will be available on May 4 via Arts & Crafts.
The album has Reuben and the Dark working outside the box, musically and lyrically. It’s been said to be Reuben Bullock’s most vivid and transformative music to date.
Bullock says, “This album is about love and the inner war that can exist when the heart and mind are torn. It is about family and intergenerational trauma. It is about holding your darkest secrets and truth from the people you love the most – and it is about dreams. Making this album was a journey to find a place where I can live my own truth, where there is a congruency of body and spirit.”
This morning, the band released lead single off the album entitled “All Or Nothing,” an anthem that sways the boundary of “confidence and complete desperation” as Bullock describes. He says, ““‘All Or Nothing’ was locked in my head for a long time. When it was finally written, I was left with a feeling of freedom, of letting go. But I am careful not to corner it into a room that is too small. It is simple and universal. It isn’t a love song. It isn’t a protest song. It is an anthem of mine.”
