The Subways

The Subways remain one of the most exciting live bands on the current touring circuit, thrilling crowds with their explosive rock sound and wild stage performances. Back in 2005, with an average age of just 18, Billy, Charlotte and Josh crashed onto the international music scene with their debut album ‘YOUNG FOR ETERNITY’, and their indie/rock-club floor-filling single ‘ROCK & ROLL QUEEN’. After early championing by John Peel and an unsigned Glastonbury battle of the bands win the NME proclaimed them “The sexiest thing to sweep rock n roll off its feet in years!”.

The band have released five albums to date. Their sophomore, ‘ALL OR NOTHING’ (2008), was recorded in LA with heavyweight producer Butch Vig (Nirvana, Garbage) and, is “Buoyed with emotional heft and supernova guitar riffs, wired around a maturing song craft” (MOJO). The tracks were written at a time when Billy was battling to save his voice following surgery to remove nodules from his vocal cords.

‘MONEY AND CELEBRITY’ followed in 2011, produced by Stephen Street (The Smiths/Blur), & was filled with “brilliantly anarchic punk-pop vignettes; each being a big musical finger that sticks it to financial greed, the mediocre mainstream and the fame fetishists” (ROCKSOUND) and included the Radio 1 A-listed single ‘WE DON’T NEED MONEY TO HAVE A GOOD TIME’. Their self-titled 4th album saw the emergence of singer and songwriter Billy Lunn as a producer, as he took control of engineering and mixing duties, and was “On Par with the best things they have ever written” (Q Magazine).
