Subways 2nd LP Due Sept.; Tour Starts

 

New album produced by
Nirvana boardsman Butch Vig.

By Fred Mills

Britain’s Subways kick off a
brief U.S. tour in NYC
tonight that will take them up to Boston
this weekend ten across the country for selected West Coast dates. Last year
the band was in the studio working on their sophomore album with producer Butch
Vig — titled All or Nothing, it’s the
followup to 2005’s Young Eternity and
is already out in the UK;
it is due Sept. 9 from Sire.

 

The Vig connection isn’t random: early on in their career,
the Subways specialized in Nirvana covers. Unsurprisingly, the band’s brand of
spunky, tuneful pop/punk has struck a chord among members of the
alterna-nation, although the new record’s relatively heavier sound has also
draw the attention of metal fans.

 

 The band: Billy Lunn
– guitar/vocals; Charlotte Cooper – bass/vocals; Josh Morgan – drums. (Fun
Fact: Until February of this year, Lunn and Cooper were an item; they continue
to work together in the band, however, effectively making the Subways this
era’s Fleetwood Mac!)
