Reuben Bullock and his band the Dark return to play the Southminster United Church for the Geomatic Attic, Feb. 29.
 They are touring in support of their most recent album un/lovReuben and the Dark return to Lethbridge, Feb. 29. Photo by Richard Amerye, which was released in October and are currently making inroads in the United States.

“ It’s been good so far. We’ve had some sold out shows,” said Bullock, just leaving Minneapolis en route to Winnipeg.
“ American audiences are a lot different that Canadian audiences. A lot of them  know me from bigger projects,” said Bullock, who has had a nice run of having his songs placed in TV shows like “Breaking Bad, The Handmaid’s Tale and Movies like Robert Downey Jr.’s  film “ Dr. Doolittle.”

 “I spend a lot of time in Los Angeles writing for movies and television,”  said Bullock, adding he has been working with a team for the past eight years who help his songs get placed in movies and television.

So a lot of American fans want to hear those songs then they go back into the band’s back catalogue,” he continued, adding it’s like starting from scratch.
 “We‘re playing small clubs in the U.S. And it’s really interesting only having 80 people in the audience, but all 80 know every word of the songs,” he observed.

“Its a really cool feeling.”
 While he has a lot of soundtrack cuts, he doesn’t expect to play many of them.

 “Someday we may do a Reuben and the Dark soundtrack show, but that would require a lot of production and maybe a symphony,” he said.


“For this show, we’ll be playing a lot of newer songs and old crowd favourites,” he said.

 Faux Prix was to be opening the show, but got called back to California.
“He’s a friend of mine from Joshua Tree, but he got called back home. So we have a Lethbridge band called Ghost Woman opening this show,” he said.

He has a busy year planned.

“We have a Germany tour planned for April and a lot of European touring in the Fall,” he said.
 He is proud of “un/love.”
 “ It’s different than my last CD. It’s happier. There was more band collaboration on it. I tracked it for two weeks in Mexico and the band recorded  their parts in Montreal. I’m proud of it. I think it’s my best work,” he said.
Reubenand the Dark and Ghost Woman play the Southminster United Church, Saturday, Feb. 29 at 8 p.m sharp.
 Tickets cost $36.50.
