The Subways to Tour the USA This Summer With Taking Back Sunday

The Subways are ready to tour once again and have accepted an offer from labelmates Taking Back Sunday to tour across the USA this June and July. The band were forced to cancel their proposed Spring US tour due to vocalist/guitarist Billy Lunn's vocal chord condition but doctors have given Billy the green light, following treatment and a much needed break from non-stop touring and singing.

This has been the first extended break in nearly twelve straight months of constant global touring. Needless to say, the band is excited to return to the US: "We're so excited to tour the States again this summer," says bassist/vocalist Charlotte Cooper. "Billy's feeling a lot better vocally and we're really ready to get back on the road. We're all really looking forward to it, so thank you for all your support and we'll see you all soon."

The debut album by the Subways, "YOUNG FOR ETERNITY," continues to attract overwhelming accolades:

"The Subways debut is packed with the kind of raw energy and brash attitude that comes with youth... it hits you like an express train." -- People Magazine

"The most compelling debut of the year." -- Synthesis Magazine

"The Subways threaten the Arctic Monkeys' position as the hottest band out of the UK." -- Rolling Stone

Fans of the band have been incredibly active online as digital sales of the first single, "Rock & Roll Queen," have now exceeded 200,000 downloads since November resulting in Platinum certification from the RIAA.

The next single from the album will be "Oh Yeah." A brand-new video for the track will be completed shortly but, in the meantime, the track is to hit radio waves this month. The original UK version of the video can be viewed on Yahoo! Music now.
