The Subways

If you were one of those people who were a little bit gutted when gritty alternative-cum-punk outfit The Subways dropped their third album in 2011 and didn’t follow it up with a subsequent North American tour, you’re in luck: the band have just announced their first North American tour in eight years.

The tour, which takes place throughout April and early May, is to support the band’s self-titled fourth studio album (which, for anybody who couldn’t quite keep up, is entitled The Subways) which was released on February 6. It also follows the unveiling of their implicitly sexual music video for their latest single, the grooved-up punk-pop of ‘Dirty Muddy Paws’, in March.

A full list of North American tour dates can be found below. All dates feature support from boisterously hazy alt-rockers PINS.
