Milburn will be heading out on a string of very special UK live dates this autumn to celebrate the 15th anniversary of their seminal album ‘Well Well Well.’ After quickly selling out their Manchester and hometown Sheffield shows, today the band have announced four new dates at Nottingham Rescue Rooms on 28th October, Birmingham O2 Academy 2 on 29th October, St Luke’s Glasgow on 4th November and Leeds Beckett Students’ Union on 5th November.
To coincide with the shows the band released 1500 special edition double LPs of the debut album on vinyl which have now sold out. The record had never before been pressed on vinyl, sides A & B contain the standard issue album tracks from the 2006 cd release whilst C & D carry all the B Sides, bonus tracks and a selection of live tracks from the band’s homecoming Leadmill (Sheffield) show from 2006 (see track listing).
Lead singer Joe Carnall said. “I get at least one request a week on social media for Well Well Well to be released on vinyl. I think many of our fans see it as a hole in their collection so it will be nice to help them complete the set. That album means so much to people” he explained. Asked why the record wasn’t released on wax the first time around, Carnall admitted that he “genuinely didn’t know. 2006 was perhaps the early days of the ‘vinyl revival’ and so maybe the record company thought it wasn’t worth the effort – idiots.”
The band will play in their favourite UK venues – performing ‘Well Well Well’ in full alongside other live tracks from their back catalogue. Tickets for the new dates go on sale at 9:00am on Friday 30th July, last remaining tickets for their London show are on sale now – all are all available from www.gigsandtours.com / www.ticketmaster.co.uk

Predictably, Carnall says that the band can’t wait to get on stage together again. “Nothing comes close to live music. It will be one of those sets where I’ll hardly have to sing. It’s going to be electric – particularly after the shit show of the past 18 months.”
In addition, the band have commissioned a one-off t-shirt design in memory of their dear friend Anthony Allen. All profits from its sale will go to charity.
