Following the upcoming release of debut album ‘Tales From The Thames Delta’ on the September 3, The Milk will be embarking on a November UK headline tour kicking off in Brighton on the November 15 and including the band’s largest headline show to date, at the Shepherds Bush Empire (full dates below).
This will follow an extensive period of activity across the summer, including a sell-out date at London’s Scala and a host of UK festivals (Isle of Wight, T, V, Ibiza Rocks, Lounge on The Farm). A new single, ‘Chip The Kids’, is out on September 10, following radio support across the likes of Fearne Cotton, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Rob Da Bank, Huw Stephens, Mistajam, Huey Morgan and XFM.
Belying the traditional period of incubation, co-writes and development, ‘Tales From The Thames Delta’ was completed in just a month. Mixed together seamlessly, it paints a vibrant, visual picture of a day and night in Essex (from the ramblings of a pirate radio DJ to the jangling of arcades, via well-known local characters in ‘Kimmi’ and ‘Mr Motivator’).
