The Milk announce fresh dates for spring 2012 - tickets on sale now/ Monday 5th December
Hotly-tipped soulful indie four-piece from Essex, The Milk, have enjoyed a big year. Widely acclaimed for their indie soul sound, and doggedly avoiding being labelled 'retro', the four eschewed an initial leaning towards punk, turning instead to a rich, soul rock and pop sound with hip hop accents.
The result was a crest of positive publicity in contrast to their limited output and they are the latest in a line of new bands having to live up to considerable expectation before they've really got going. The debut single, '(All I Wanted Was) Danger' was released earlier this year and it sums up the new direction well, being more or less the first thing the foursome did after shelving their punk rock aspirations.
The News of the World, which used to be a popular tabloid Sunday newspaper, said that, through 'Danger', The Milk "take the best of Sixties soul and channel it into classic, turbocharged pop". Reviews like that do little to shed the image of soul throwbacks but it has been successful in helping to pack out venues and creating a real buzz for The Milk.
The lengthy tour begins in Canterbury at the Farmhouse on 1st March, with further dates across the UK, including dates in London, Manchester, Liverpool, Bristol, Brighton, Leeds, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow and many more until the last date (currently) at Chinnerys in Southend on 5th April.
We have tickets available now for many of the dates, priced from £6 (just £5 for Dundee, £9 for London).
The Milk release second their single 'B-Roads and B-Sides' on 18th December - check it out in the player, above.
