Mat Kerekes Releases Album “Ruby”

Toledo, OH singer-songwriter Mat Kerekes has released his new album Ruby, via Black Cement Records. The album is available digitally HERE and physically HERE starting today.  

Best known as lead vocalist of celebrated alt rock band Citizen, Kerekes presents his softer side and showcases his versatility as a singer-songwriter on his new solo material. Incorporating elements of pop and alternative, Ruby boasts massive choruses, dynamic arrangements, and infectious melodies. 

Kerekes began writing and demoing Ruby at home with no particular goal in mind besides self-expression. However once longtime collaborator Will Yip heard the demos, he asked that Kerekes consider releasing them on his newly formed Elektra Music Group sub-label Black Cement Records. Kerekes tracked most of the instruments himself, and produced and engineered Ruby in a studio that he built with his brother in his garage. 

Since I recorded and produced the album myself, without having anyone talking in my ear, it honestly makes me feel more personally attached to it. It feels like mine,” shared Kerekes. 

Ruby follows 2016’s Luna & The Wilde Blue Everything as Kerekes’ fourth solo album. Kerekes began unveiling songs from the album late last year with the release of title track “Ruby”. In February, he shared the album’s anthemic second single “Diamonds”. Kerekes collaborated with director Johnny Chew on music videos for both tracks, and is expected to release an additional music video for “Hawthorne” in the coming weeks. 

Last month, Kerekes wrapped a headline tour that saw him debut songs from Ruby to sold-out rooms across North America. This evening, he will celebrate the release of the album with a hometown in-store performance at Toledo, OH’s Culture Clash Records. Upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found HERE
