Ilan Rubin, best known for his work in Nine Inch Nails, Paramore and Angels & Airwaves, will be releasing an album entitled Exhibit B in March, under the name The New Regime.
The new album will be released on March 31 and will feature eight new tracks from The New Regime. It’s the follow-up to 2013’s Exhibit A. He has also released two full-length albums as The New Regime, 2008’s Coup and 2011’s Speak Through The White Noise. He wrote Exhibit B while on tour with Nine Inch Nails in 2013 and 2014.
“Most people didn’t know about all the things I can do because there was never really a place to showcase those skills,” Rubin says. “It’s not me playing other instruments because I can. It’s because I can execute my exact vision for the music. I view the music as a composer, except I’m able to play all the instruments in the orchestra. I play the bass, guitar, drums and piano the way I want it to be done for these songs, so why would I have anybody else but me do these things—especially when I’m able to play exactly what I’m envisioning?”
He’s already released a new track from the upcoming album, “We Rise, We Fall.” The song has a heavy beat and complex sound, with smooth vocals. Its mid-tempo rhythm makes it easy to enjoy and gives listeners a taste of what to expect on Exhibit B. You can stream the track below.
As for the other projects Rubin is involved in, a director announced a Nine Inch Nails DVD set back in November and Paramore will be touring the U.S. this spring. Meanwhile, his Angels and Airwaves bandmate Tom DeLonge has been busy with the controversy surrounding his leaving Blink-182.
