THE MILK announce June UK tour, festival dates and new single 'Every Time We Fight'

New Single – ‘Every Time We Fight’ – out June 24
UK Tour and Festival Details Also Confirmed (incl. Ibiza Rocks with Ed Sheeran)

Hot on the heels of a 27-date UK tour, which climaxed with a sold-out show at The Scala, The Milk have announced details of a brand new single for the summer and a string of live dates for June. The soaring ‘Every Time We Fight’ will see a release on June 24 on Sign Of The Times, and follows support across the likes of Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Mistajam, Huey Morgan and XFM for the Essex four-piece’s former single (‘Broke Up The Family’).

‘Every Time We Fight’ is a personal and impassioned turn from The Milk, mixing classic soul melodies with a modern dance sensibility. Driven by a memorable chorus, soaring horns and intricate rhythms, this is the sound of a band digging deeper than the hip-hop groove of fan-favourite ‘B-Roads’, or the gutsy guitar-rock of first single ‘Broke Up The Family’. Seemingly penned in response to a rocky but resilient relationship, the track was in fact recorded amidst the summer riots; which added an extra gravitas to the domestic turbulence within the lyrics. In typically brazen fashion, the band explain that “Every Time We Fight is a war cry to anyone who feels cheated out of a brighter future.”

With the band’s debut album expected later this summer, The Milk will first play another extensive run of dates, cementing their reputation as one of the hottest live acts in the UK. These include festival spots at Great Escape, Camden Crawl, Ibiza Rocks (where they’ve been invited to support Ed Sheeran), Beachbreak and Isle of Wight. 

With an expansive following and a stellar record under their belt, not to mention another hefty set of tour dates across the summer, the real work for The Milk starts here...
