Milestones have just revealed the video for track, Against The World. It is the final musical offering as a band from the Mancunian 4-piece, who announced they are splitting up last month. It is taken from the band’s debut album Red Lights, which was released earlier this year. Of the video, frontman Matt Clarke has said, “When we announced the band was breaking up we began to look through some old videos of us messing around on tour. It reminded us of the kids who started this band – still in school – who just wanted to tour the world and make a positive impact to our own, and our fans’ lives. We wanted to share this video with you all because of what the song signifies; although the band has been cut a little earlier than expected we still went against the world and did what we set out to achieve.”
Milestones will honour their time as a band by playing two final shows in January 2019. Despite being made with heavy hearts, it was a joint decision between the band to call it a day. The band are ready to explore other avenues and start new chapters in their lives, and feel that this is the right move for them. Milestones will play two final shows as a band in January 2019, at London’s Thousand Island on the 18th, and at Manchester’s Night People on the 19th. Tickets are on sale now but selling out fast, here. Read the band’s full statement here.
Milestones formed in 2014 and once completing their line up in 2015, they quickly caught the attention of renowned label, Fearless Records. They signed to Fearless and released their EP Equal Measures in 2016. Milestones soon cut their teeth on the live circuit supporting the likes of Hawthorne Heights, WSTR, Simple Plan and Mayday Parade. The band then released their debut album Red Lights earlier this year. They headed out on their own headline tour, played Slam Dunk Festival and supported Broadside. Milestones also gathered the support of the likes of the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, Spotify, 1883 Magazine, Kerrang!, Rock Sound and lots more across the board.
