  • 14/12/2013: Vinyl repress and 2014 calendar

TONIGHT! The U.K. Subs play their last gig of 2013.
See you at the Garage in London :-)

  • 12/12/2013: U.K. Subs Full Band Statement (re the 8/12/13 gig in Ashton under Lyne)

Following on from the recent individual Facebook statements from Charlie, Alvin and Jamie, which seem to have satisfied most people but not all, the band would like to further point out that we had no knowledge about Pressure 28s dubious singer and his racist past until various pieces of evidence were sent to us over the last few days indicating this band was not all they seemed after all. In order then to put this crazy notion that we are Nazi sympathetic to rest once and for all, please note that the U.K. Subs have instructed their UK and European gig booking agents to implement a blanket policy forthwith that all Subs' promoters must vet the support bands they provide to make sure they are in no way affiliated to any right wing organisations and that they have no record of spreading race hate or Nazi ideology either via their music or on their websites. If we discover a band has been offered to share a bill with us that fits this description we will refuse to perform with them and demand their replacement with a suitable group who share the same ideals as the U.K. Subs.

The band's collective and avowed policy is that we are, and always have been, and always will be an Anti-Nazi, Anti-racist band.

Charlie, Jet, Alvin, Jamie: U.K. Subs 12-12-2013.

  • 30/10/2013: Motörhead date cancelled

The U.K. Subs were due to support Motörhead on Sunday 17th November at the Brixton Academy in London. However, Motörhead have postponed all scheduled dates as per the below statement:

10/29/2013 - Personal message from Lemmy. European tour postponed.

I have to sadly let you know that Motörhead has had to postpone the forthcoming European tour until early next year, 2014. We have made the decision because I am not quite ready to hit the road yet, and am working my way back to full fitness and rude health. Don't worry - I'm not about to start promoting veganism and alcohol-free beverages, but it is fair to say that I personally have been reconfiguring areas of my life to make sure I can come back fitter and stronger than ever. It disappointed me tremendously to have to say I wasn't quite ready to hit the road yet, but not nearly as much as it would've disappointed me to go out, play some average shows and watch my health give way long before the tour was over! When people come to see a Motörhead tour, they expect a Motörhead show, and that is exactly what you will get as soon as I am fit and ready to rumble. 
Your patience and understanding is appreciated...and know that I'm getting stronger and stronger every day, so watch out next spring Europe and we will see you then.

Thank you all,

Lemmy

The tour is scheduled to restart in February. Fans, keep your tickets and check back with imotorhead.com for further details in the coming weeks.

Dom Daley, on the Uber Rock website, has given XXIV an absolutely brilliant review.
"From the superb quality packaging that houses this album to the grooves contained within, the UK Subs have once again left me lost for superlatives to lament about this album and for a writer that's not a good place to be. I only hope I've done it justice and whetted your appetite enough to convince you that one of the albums of the year is with us and and its name is 'XXIV' and to put it simply it's an absolute killer and you'd be a bit of a mug not to rush out and get involved because this shit is essential! An album bursting with variety, spirit, hope and, above all, great great music!"
