Hertfordshire, UK indie punk favourites THE SUBWAYS are delighted to reveal their new single ‘You Kill My Cool’ which is released 6th April 2022 on Alcopop! Records.


The band are also pleased to confirm that the single is the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming fifth studio album set for release later this year, with further details TBA over the coming months.


Following the departure of original drummer and founding member Josh Morgan, the band recently announced that new drummer Camille Phillips (The Ramonas) will become a permanent addition to the band’s line up.


Rounding out the bumper news drop, the band have also announced a run of Sep/Oct 2022 UK headline tour dates, with tickets on sale Friday 8th April 2022.


They will also be appearing at Truck Festival, Standon Calling, High Tide Festival, Gateways Festival and Southsea Victorious, with further dates TBA (see below for full listings).


Commenting on the inspiration behind new single ‘You Kill My Cool’, front man Billy Lunn says: "You Kill My Cool was written at a time when I felt love so strongly that I wanted to be consumed by it, to give myself over to it entirely.”


“I recognised a self-effacement in this feeling, as it was a willing submission or surrender that was as much destructive as it was productive. You become ecstatic, beside yourself, and not what you were before. Time stops but moves too quickly, you grow but you also diminish, you feel pleasure alongside immense pain.”


“The one you love is more than just a single number amongst seven-billion others, more than a profile picture or a name by which you call them. They're godlike—and with such power, they can send you to a state of nirvana and they can demolish you. Either of which continues to enthral."


The track is the latest new material from the band following their previous Black Lives Matter-inspired standalone single ‘Fight’ in 2021, collaborating with rising stars Nova Twins and Tokky Horror for exclusive remixes and B-sides.


The band closed out last year on their Young For Eternity Tour dates with ART BRUT, as well as playing a handful of intimate headline gigs, and will be heading to the EU in May 2022 for a string of Germany and Netherlands headline dates.

More info:


Formed in 2002, by now The Subways should need no introduction. Nearly 20 years into their career the band have had multiple chart-worthy album releases including Young For Eternity (2005), All Or Nothing (2008), Money And Celebrity (2011), and The Subways (2015), spawning a slew of hit singles including ‘Rock & Roll Queen’, ‘Oh Yeah’, ‘Girls & Boys’ and ‘We Don’t Need Money To Have A Good Time’.


They have toured with AC/DC, Foo Fighters, and Oasis, appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and graced the festival main-stages of Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Lollapalooza, Download, Soundwave, Hurricane & Southside, Rock Im Park, Rock Am Ring and many more.


The band have worked with Nirvana and Garbage super-producer Butch Vig, as well as Blur and The Smith’s mastermind Stephen Street, and the band have appeared in several major films and videogames including Guy Ritchie’s Rock’N’Rolla, American smash-hit TV drama The OC, and Colin McCrae: DiRT 2, Saint's Row 2, Fifa Street 2, Forza Horizon.


The first track to be taken from their recently-completed forthcoming new album, ‘Fight’ was The Subways’ first release without long-time drummer and founding member Josh Morgan, who announced his departure from the band in October 2020, shortly after studio sessions were completed.


Produced by Lunn and mixed by Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse, New Order), ‘Fight’ is a precursor to the sonic texture of the new album, without giving too much away too early. In the advent of COVID, Lunn is producing and mixing bands in his Welwyn Garden City-based recording studio (with social-distancing measures in place) until touring resumes.


‘Fight’ picked up a triumphant wave of support, with NME, CLASH Magazine, Steve Lamacq at BBC 6music, Gay Times, Broadway World, and more all championing the band’s long-awaited return, and demonstrating a renewed appetite for the band’s forthcoming fifth studio effort.


The Subways’ hit single ‘Rock & Roll Queen’ also recently appeared in Ladbrokes’ European Championship TV advert, partnering with #WeMakeEvents to light up music venues in red and lend support to the live entertainment industry. The advert features hundreds of skilled and experienced drummers performing as a player prepares to take a penalty.
