Ilan Rubin recruits drummer for The New Regime

You may remember us reporting that Ilan Rubin from the Lostprophets has been busy working on an album for his solo project The New Regime, on which he plays guitar, bass, keys and vocals as well as drums? You can read the full story HERE.

When Rhythm last spoke to Ilan he was facing the unenviable task of finding the right drummer to play for the band when he eventually takes it out on the road. The job is now complete and it is our pleasure to introduce the fantastic Hayden Scott.

Hayden was born in 1984 and grew up in Melbourne, Australia. He started playing drums when he was six or seven years old. "In '95 Chris Cheney (Living End) worked at my primary school where I was fortunate enough to jam with him nearly nearly everyday," he tells Rhythm. "The same year I met Chris, Silverchair's Frogstomp was released and that's all I listened to for the best part of two years. That was the year I got serious about music and started to learn guitar on the side."

As well as The New Regime Hayden is currently playing with Sub Rosa and The Oohlas.
