Subways frontman Billy Lunn has announced he will be playing a Zoom concert to raise money for The Bail Project.
The Bail Project aims to support those who have been incarcerated from low-income backgrounds by paying their bail. Speaking about the non-profit, Lunn stated:
Considering how profiling and incarceration/criminal proceedings negatively affects the black community most, in the US and in many cases in the UK, we are raising money for The Bail Project, which pays for the release of those who have been arrested following the marches and protests in the name of Black Lives Matter.
Lunn has long been politically active, having joined his local labour party in hometown Ware (even running in local elections as a Labour councillor!). He was also supposed to be embarking on a 10th Anniversary tour of his band’s debut album Young For Eternity earlier this year.
Young For Eternity helped launch The Subways reputation for having a formidable live set. Despite not playing to a physical live audience, Lunn is sure to bring the high octane energy for which his band is known. Bandmates Charlotte and Josh will also be joining him in the audience – so see if you can spot them!
