Editor’s Note: It was quite an interesting conversation with Ilan Rubin for Madness To Creation. Ilan’s drumming skills became a worldwide sensation as he drummed for a band called F.o.N. as an 11 year old at Woodstock 1999. He’s gone on to play in other bands such as Fenix Tx, Lostprophets, Denver Harbor, and Paramore. He currently drums, plays piano and does some guitar work for Nine Inch Nails, in which they have personally called him “the secret weapon of Nine Inch Nails”, and he drums for Angels & Airwaves, and is the mastermind behind an incredible band known as The New Regime. The New Regime have released “Heart Mind Body & Soul” this year, and played some shows with Silversun Pickups. Covid-19 would be the cause of the Silversun Pickups’ tour to be cancelled and Ilan shares some of his experience about that. In this interview, get inside Ilan Rubin’s mind as he discusses his drumming techniques, studio mindset, along with The New Regime and mental health awareness with Madness To Creation.
