"All Or Nothing" is scheduled for domestic release on September 9, 2008. The 12-song strong album was recorded in Los Angeles last fall by venerable producer Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth) and marks a dynamic sonic progression from The Subways' critically-embraced 2006 album debut, "Young For Eternity."
This time around the riffs are heavier; the drums more manic than before but the melodic sensibilities remain intact and even more infectious. The lyrical perspectives and vocal performances are also a cut above to reflect their personal and professional growth and the experience of a life less ordinary touring the Globe non-stop as they have for the past few years.
As a live act, The Subways have made their presence known; whether it's a small club in Chicago or the main stages of Reading, Leeds or Glastonbury in the UK, their level of intensity has attracted a loyal and ever-growing audience as well as praise from other artists to which they have lent their support: Oasis, Foo Fighters, Paul Weller, Taking Back Sunday, Angels and Airwaves have publicly stood up to be counted as avid fans.
