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 May and June (Bristol Cooler on May 31).

The soaring ‘Every Time We Fight’ will see a release on June 24 on Sign Of The Times, and follows support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Mistajam, Huey Morgan and XFM for the Essex four-piece’s previous single ‘Broke Up The Family’ at the start of April.

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.
