Rubblebucket shared a new single, “Cherry Blossom,” set to appear on their upcoming album, Earth Worship, due out on October 21 via Grand Jury. The band led by Kalmia Traver and Alex Toth also announced a run of 2022 tour dates around the new record.
Rubblebucket heralded Earth Worship in August with the title track. Traver and Toth now follow with “Cherry Blossom.” Kalmia detailed the new single:
“This bright breezy happy go lucky number is a simple love song that suggests the ineffable union of flowers and sunlight reaching for each other, challenging each other, making meaning of each other. The scaler lead melody descends like a waterfall over the thundering timpanies and shaker-driven Fleetwoodian country-disco groove. We are guided to a place where lovers hold hands and run down lanes, pausing to pull out their magnifying lenses and inspect insects on the greenery they pass. In the bridge the repeated phrase ‘I know what’s underneath’ (referring to passers by ‘with their masks on’) points to a playfulness and vulnerability the main characters share, perhaps aided by the lushness of their environment, but the line also sharpens an edge: what are the ways in which we hide ourselves from the world? And alternately, what are the ways in which we use masks to tell important stories that aid in our survival and evolution.”

Traver, Toth and their live band have a handful of dates around Earth Worship on their itinerary beginning with a show in New York City, where the band is based, at Brooklyn’s Public Records on November 2. On November 30, Rubblebucket will perform in Hamden, Connecticut at Space Ballroom ahead of a concert at the State Theatre in Portland, Maine the following evening.
On December 2, Traver and Toth return to Burlington, Vermont — where they founded Rubblebucket as students at UVM — to perform at Higher Ground. The last date the band has on the books so far is a concert at Bearsville Theater in Woodstock, New York on December 3.
