Reuben and the Dark has released a deluxe version of its acclaimed LP, Arms Of A Dream, via Arts & Crafts. The deluxe version includes Reuben’s version of the Tragically Hip’s “Bobcaygeon,” fan favourite “Hold Me Like A Fire”, and an alternate version of “Hallelujah”.
The deluxe LP also includes the new single “You And I” which is an “homage to a childhood memory,” says Reuben Bullock.
“It is about the past but carries a sentiment very grounded in the present and what shape the future could take. I tried writing about some of the stories that informed me as an adolescent but by the time I had written about two, the song was already too long. It carries much more than the words I could put into it. It is about the dreams we had. The lives we lived. It holds secrets. Good songs hold secrets. This song was supposed to be on Arms of a Dream but never found its place. I have had more messages asking about this song than any other we play, so it is exciting to finally release it.”
The video for “You And I” was filmed in southern the Portugese region of the Algarve, and towns of Lagos and Faro by Isis Essery and edited by Kaelen Ohm Bullock.

Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
