Touring with everyone from Xtra Mile labelmates Million Dead to US punk-rockers Billy Talent, Reuben proved themselves nightly. They released two of their three thundering albums on Xtra Mile – the critically-adored Racecar Is Racecar Backwards and Very Fast, Very Dangerous - before going it alone in 2007.
