If you’re looking to throw yourself back into live music after Christmas, look no further than the return of exciting rockers The Subways, who return in the new year with their fifth studio album, Uncertain Joys, which releases on 13th January, and a live show at Sunderland’s Independent on Saturday 28th January.  

It’s been about eight years since the band’s last full-length LP, but they certainly haven’t lost their touch; their newest release still has the same high tempo rock sound, with standout tracks like You Kill My Cool, a 2000s indie/garage rock throwback, which has a great kick to it and channels a playful, aggressive energy into a quick, roaring bop.

Joining them at Independent will be Gaffa Tape Sandy, who feature a punk spin on the UK’s typical garage rock sound; check out their track Kill The Chord, which displays the hard-hitting energy that a raw and aggressive punk anthem needs. Also supporting will be local faves bigfatbig, who’ve recently released their debut EP Rockin’ and Rollin’ and Whatnot, which sees the group flexing their signature up-tempo pop punk sound.

The Subways, Gaffa Tape Sandy and bigfatbig play Independent, Sunderland on Saturday 28th January.
