Hertfordshire, UK indie punk favourites THE SUBWAYS are delighted to reveal the video for their new single ‘You Kill My Cool’ which is out now on Alcopop! Records.
The video was filmed by London-based director Blake Claridge (The Wanted, Hadouken, Martin Garrix), who says of the visuals: “I’d always wanted to do something with a perpetual motion, and in the end it was a butchered slider, many clamps, sand bags, a piece of rope, a lot of heavy lifting, a crash mat, and throwing in a Roll Rig. I like to call it the ‘Drop-Cam’ but for insurance purposes I don’t think it would catch on.”
Alongside the video for ‘You Kill My Cool’, the band have also released single B-side ‘Oi You Boy Bands’ which is out now on all good digital service providers—a rallying feminist cry against all things pale, male and stale that features lead vocals from bassist Charlotte Cooper and new drummer/permanent member Camille Phillips (The Ramonas).
The Subways’ recently announced forthcoming fifth studio album is set for release later this year, with further details TBA over the coming months.
The single 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.
The Subways’ Sep/Oct 2022 UK headline tour dates are on sale now, and 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).
