2020 marks 15 years since the release of The Subways’ debut album ‘Young For Eternity’.
To celebrate the landmark anniversary the trio are heading out on tour – and coming to Bristol O2 Academy 20 March!
Back in 2005 The Welwyn Garden City trio quickly established themselves as one of Britain’s most undeniably exhilarating new bands.
On 27 March 2020, they will reissue their ‘Young For Eternity’ debut, alongside their second record ‘All Or Nothing’. This is the first time either album has been released on 12″ LP. They will be on limited edition, numbered, red and limited edition, numbered, orange, 180 gram vinyl respectively and each will include a unique signed poster. Just announced also are the double CD extended editions of both albums, which include previously unheard and unreleased material.
In March 2020, The Subways will hit the road with a run of headline dates. Frontman Billy Lunn explains further: “Nearly fifteen years ago, when Young for Eternity was released, Josh and Charlotte were 18 and 19 years old, and I was 20. Touring our debut album was for us an adventurous explosion of excitement, just as every tour since then has been.
“In 2020, we get to relive that initial excitement when we embark on the Young for Eternity tour to play the album in full. None of us can truly express just how thrilled we are that we get the chance to do this.”
The Subways rise was nothing short of amazing, with huge UK tours and festival appearances including main-stage Glastonbury (hand-picked by MichaelEavis), Reading & Leeds, and invites from Oasis, Foo Fighters and ACDC to support them at stadium shows. Loved by the UK music press with NME, Q,Kerrang, Rocksound and The Guardian amongst the many names who tipped them as ones to watch, with Zane Lowe, Lauren Laverne and John Peelhugely supportive of the band.
Produced by Ian Broudie (The Lightning Seeds), ‘Young For Eternity’ saw The Subways delivering material of the quality you’d expect from seasoned songwriters twice their age, while performing it with the kind of reckless abandon that crackled with the intensity, soul and sexuality that only the exuberance of youth could truly provide.
