Seattle, WA indie rockers Subways on the Sun will release their sophomore album ‘Capsize’ on September 21st via Spartan Records.

While the band set sail with its shimmering guitar-pop debut “The Honeymoon Stagecoach” in 2013, “Capsize,” steers a course into grittier territory.

“Capsize” is a collection of songs which showcases a fresh artistic trajectory, and follows our collective struggle to accept the passage of time and identify the voices in our lives that are worth listening to. And it’s immediately evident as anthemic opener “Just To Be With You” channels the heart racing spirit of Muse, with a riff-heavy synth-forward energy that rips through the whole record.

Each song is a unique statement, drawing fluidly from each member’s influences. This comes across clearly in the Mew-inspired “Tongues,” combining jangly telecaster riffs and dirty-as-hell basslines. Remnants of early Jimmy Eat World shine through both on the album’s title track, “Capsize,” and “Time’s Not Long,” while “I’m an Island” features lush textures and ethereal vocals akin to The Cure or Death Cab for Cutie.

A music video for the track, “Hope You Like Getting Old” is premiering on Seattle’s KEXP:
