THE SUBWAYS

Tuesday October 1st

2023 saw The Subways proudly release their 5th studio album ‘UNCERTAIN JOYS’ and embark on a co-headline European tour with ‘Ash’.

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!”. An appearance on American smash teen drama ‘THE OC’ and in Guy Ritchie’s London Gangster flick ‘ROCKNROLLA’, as well as placements in Colin McCrae: DiRT 2, Saint's Row 2, Fifa Street 2 & Forza Horizon and much more has helped make the ‘ROCK & ROLL QUEEN’ a Spotify Rock Playlist mainstay. 

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).

Though the 2020 global pandemic forced the postponement of their 40+ date international ‘Young For Eternity Anniversary Tour’ it also kept Billy busy in his newly-established Hertfordshire studio, with Charlotte and Josh in their respective homes, focused on remotely recording Album 5. Makeshift under-stair vocal booths were quickly constructed! Sadly, in October 2020, after completing drum contributions for the upcoming 5th album, drummer and founding band member Josh Morgan left the band. (Full story here). The Subways quickly added drummer Camille Phillips (previously of The Ramonas to the band’s lineup for their rescheduled 2021 ‘Young For Eternity’ anniversary UK tour dates, on which she was very warmly welcomed and received by the band’s devoted fanbase. In January 2022, she was announced as The Subways’ new permanent drummer.

5th album “UNCERTAIN JOYS” was produced by Billy at his studio & mixed by the Grammy Award winning Adrian Bushby. In April 2021 the band signed to Alcopop! and released their politically-charged, Black-Lives-Matter-inspired single “FIGHT”. 2022 Singles “YOU KILL MY COOL”, “LOVE WAITING ON YOU” and “BLACK WAX” followed before the album & title track single release of “UNCERTAIN JOYS” in January 2023. So far they’ve garnered press support from The Independent, NME, Classic Rock Magazine, FLOOD Magazine, CLASH, Guitar Magazine, Brooklyn Vegan and more, with international radio support from Steve Lamacq at BBC 6music, John Kennedy at Radio X, Jasper Leijdens at KINK, and KEXP, amongst others.

2023 is set to be the band’s heaviest touring schedule since pre the pandemic with several full European tours planned. It is indeed live where the band hit another level. In 20 years of international touring they have notably supported AC/DC, Foo Fighters & Oasis, appeared on Live at Abbey Road, TOTPs, CDUSA, the Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. As Firm summer festival favourites, they have graced the stages on multiple occasions at over 100 international festivals (including Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage & main stage performances at Reading & Leeds, Rock Im Park, Rock Am Ring, Hurricane, Southside, Lollapalooza, Sziget & Rock En Seine) but whether in front of 100 people or 350,000, the band always deliver a high octane, thoroughly entertaining set.

“We will rock till we drop, as there is nothing more exciting for us than being on tour. The greatest drug in the world is seeing people screaming the words and dancing to the songs you’ve written. To get up onstage and to play rock and roll every day, to visit new towns, new cities, new countries, new continents and to make new friends along the way, it’s the most amazing experience we’ve ever felt!”

The Subways are Billy Lunn, Charlotte Cooper, and Camille Phillips
