The Subways are kicking off their latest tour in Newcastle and it looks like a real double-bill and a half as on support duties are the brilliant Art Brut. Sold!

It’s 15 years since The Subways crashed into the consciousness of indie kids everywhere with their rumbustious debut album ‘Young For Eternity’. It remains a vital listen and whether it’s thrumming with punky thrashing, or tipping its hat to tender acoustic pop, their gum-snapping sass remains firmly in place. It also spawned hits such as ‘Rock & Roll Queen’, which cropped up in a Kate Moss Rimmel advert. The band are reissuing the album – along with it’s equally feisty follow-up, ‘All Or Nothing’ – on vinyl for the first time in March (there will also be extended CD versions) and they will be supporting these releases by playing said debut album in full (IN FULL!) on this live tour. If that wasn’t enough to have you dancing a conga round the room then you should know that supporting them will be the very extraordinary Art Brut, perhaps the cultiest indie band of the 21st century. Oh my!

The Subways + Art Brut, Thursday 12 March, Boilershop, Newcastle, 7pm, £25.50. boilershop.net
