In 2005, The Subways released their first album Young For Eternity. On the strength of this album, the Welwyn Garden City rock band quickly gained the favor of DJs such as Zane Lowe and John Peel, as well as publications like The Guardian and NME, the latter of which called the record “the sexiest thing to sweep Rock n’ Roll off its feet in years.” By the time their second album, the Butch Vig-produced All or Nothing, came out in 2008, they had become one of the most buzzed-about new bands from England.
In celebration of the 15th anniversary of Young For Eternity, the first two Subways albums will be pressed on vinyl for the first time, both set for release on February 20, 2020. They will be released on limited edition numbered 180-gram vinyl, Young For Eternity on red vinyl and All For Nothing on orange. Each copy will include a unique signed poster.
The first Subways album was released when frontman Billy Lunn was the band’s only member to have hit his 20s. In March 2020, a decade and a half later, the band will prove the album’s title true with nine dates around the United Kingdom by playing Young For Eternity in full at each show. The tour will begin on March 12 in Newcastle at O2 Academy and conclude just over two weeks later at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town.
Tickets for the tour will go on sale at 10am next Friday, September 27. The Subways will be supported by Art Brut at all shows.
