Hyperkinetic UK rock trio, THE SUBWAYS have completed their 2nd album for Sire Records entitled “ALL OR NOTHING” scheduled for domestic release on Sep. 9, 2008.
The 12-song strong album was recorded in Los Angeles last fall by venerable producer Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth) and marks a dynamic sonic progression from their critically-embraced 2006 album debut, “YOUNG FOR ETERNITY.”
The new album, “ALL OR NOTHING,” reveals the work of a confident, revitalised band with a singular focus and a new mission statement. “We’re coming out, we’re coming over, you’re standing on the platform and we’re bringing you with us!” This time around the riffs are heavier; the drums more manic than before but the melodic sensibilities remain intact and even more infectious this time around. The lyrical perspectives and vocal performances are also a cut above to reflect their personal and professional growth and the experience of a life less ordinary touring the Globe non-stop as they have for the past few years. Yet they are all still in their early 20s. Vocalist Billy Lunn has fully recovered from career-threatening vocal chord surgery and feeling stronger and more motivated than ever as the albums title suggests.
This summer, THE SUBWAYS will return to the US to play a special club tour for fans to preview songs from their upcoming album.
