The Subways are an English alternative rock band. Their debut album, Young For Eternity, was released on 4 July 2005 in the UK and February 14, 2006 in the U.S. Their second album, All or Nothing, was released on 30 June 2008. Although the band have not experienced a great deal of commercial success, they have gained a loyal cult following amongst attendees of the annual Reading and Leeds festivals, in which on each occasion they attracted a crowd big enough to fill the second stage tent beyond capacity, resulting in the band becoming main stage regulars. Their debut album was certified gold in January 2007 for 100,000 units shipped.
On 29 November, the band headed back into the studio to record their third studio album. By 21 December the band announced they are back in the studio recording with Stephen Street. The band have partnered with the direct-to-fan platform Pledge Music, and are offering fans the chance to be part of the release of the new album, which will be released in early September 2011. This album is entitled “Money and Celebrity”.
The band announced on their current tour that the first single from the forthcoming album will be “It’s a Party”, which was released as a free download through the band’s website.
