Reuben's Accomplice (styled Reubens Accomplice) is an American band from Phoenix, Arizona.

The group formed in 1994 at Thunderbird High School in Phoenix[1] and released several 7" singles over the course of the 1990s, touring with DIY punk and emo acts such as Jimmy Eat World, Pedro the Lion, The Promise Ring, and Karate.[2] The group's debut full-length, I Blame the Scenery was issued on Better Looking Records in 2001.[3][4][5] Among the guests on the album are members of Calexico, Giant Sand, and Jimmy Eat World, as well as Neko Case. Their follow-up full-length, The Bull, the Balloon, and the Family, arrived in 2004.

In 2009, the group toured with Jimmy Eat World on the Clarity 10-year anniversary tour, having been the group's opening band on the original 1999 Clarity tour.[6]
