Ash and The Subways come together to present the Oh Yeah Squared limited 7″ vinyl release, just as the pair are about to embark on a co-headline tour of the UK and Europe together.
Put simply, each band covers each other’s ‘Oh Yeah’ single. The Subways take on Ash’s 1996 ode to summer romance – available to stream now – while Ash cover The Subways 2005 single dedicated to those teenage years, set for streaming release in November.
In honour of the original 7″ singles (which were out on white [The Subways] and yellow [Ash] vinyl) this limited run will come in yellow and white in clear vinyl, with art from the sensational Pete Lloyd. The record is limited strictly to 1000 copies, and will never be repressed.
The vinyl will be available on the forthcoming tour, with just a few appearing on the Alcopop! site.
The Subways Billy Lunn comments: “It’ll be a challenge, going head-to-head with our heroes, Ash – but we’ll give this no-holds-barred rock battle everything we have! It’s such an honour to be sharing space on a 7” single with them. We’ve loved their Oh Yeah since we were kids, so we hope we did it justice! And we can’t wait for you all to hear what they did with our Oh Yeah!”
Ash say: “To celebrate our forthcoming coheadline tour with The Subways we’ve each done our own take on the other band’s classic single Oh Yeah. Packaged together as a limited edition split 7″ complete with beautiful artwork by Pete Lloyd these beauties will be selling like hotcakes. Do not miss out!”
