The Subways release their new album on Monday (9th Feb). This is their 4th album, released 10 years since the band formed. Back in 2005, with an average age of just 16, Billy, Charlotte and Josh crashed onto the international music scene with their, now cult, debut album ‘YOUNG FOR ETERNITY’ and rock-club floor filler ‘ROCK & ROLL QUEEN’. The sophomore album, ‘ALL OR NOTHING’ (2008), was recorded in LA with producer Butch Vig and is a sonically enormous, harder hitting album. The tracks written at a time when Charlotte and Billy were midst a breakup of their personal relationship and Billy was battling to save his voice by undergoing surgery to remove nodules from his vocal chords.
‘MONEY AND CELEBRITY’ followed in 2011 with the band working with producer Stephen Street on an insanely catchy record. The band credit the celebrity circus & reckless financial culture as the drive behind tracks such as lead single ‘WE DON’T NEED MONEY TO HAVE A GOOD TIME’.
The new album is set to be big in sound and energy. A full on rock record with the hooks The Subways have become famous for. The album also marks a new phase for the band. Having previously worked with legendary producers on their first three albums lead singer Billy Lunn has taken on full engineering, production and mixing responsibility.
Billy, Charlotte & Josh reach their 4th album firing on all cylinders.
The Subways are Billy Lunn – Vocals/ Guitar, Charlotte Cooper – Bass/ Vocals, Josh Morgan – Drums
