Welwyn Garden City band The Subways have released their new single from their forthcoming fifth studio album.

The Hertfordshire indie-rock favourites' new track, You Kill My Cool, was released on April 6 on Alcopop! Records. You can listen to the song below.

Set to appear live at this summer's Standon Calling festival in Hertfordshire, the anthemic love song is the latest track to be taken from the band's upcoming fifth studio album set for release later this year.


Commenting on the inspiration behind the epic new single, singer and guitarist Billy Lunn said: "You Kill My Cool was written at a time when I felt love so strongly that I wanted to be consumed by it, to give myself over to it entirely.

“I recognised a self-effacement in this feeling, as it was a willing submission or surrender that was as much destructive as it was productive.

"You become ecstatic, beside yourself, and not what you were before. Time stops but moves too quickly, you grow but you also diminish, you feel pleasure alongside immense pain."

Lunn added: “The one you love is more than just a single number amongst seven-billion others, more than a profile picture or a name by which you call them. They're godlike - and with such power, they can send you to a state of nirvana and they can demolish you. Either of which continues to enthral."

Following the single's release, The Subways posted on Instagram: "Thank you so much for the incredible response to our new single ‘You Kill My Cool’! We’re so happy you’re enjoying it!!"

The rock banger is the latest new material from the Rock & Roll Queen band following their previous Black Lives Matter-inspired standalone single Fight in 2021.
