Talking about the new album, Millie Manders says: “Our sophomore album has been so much more collaborative as a band, and it’s been a really wonderful process in terms of expansion and evolution of our sound while maintaining a lot of what we have already put out on Telling Truths, Breaking Ties. It’s also been a great opportunity to bond as musicians, writing in rooms together in blocks over the last year or so. We are all so proud of what we have achieved, and we all hope that Wake Up, Shut Up, Work has a similarly warm reception when it’s released into the world.”

MMATSU are known for their ferocious and joyous live shows and have been championed by the likes of the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, BBC Introducing, Radio X and Vive Le Rock magazine. With grinding guitars, irresistible horns, huge amounts of pop appeal and candid lyrics, the band delve into themes of loss, betrayal, anxiety, heartbreak, environmental concerns and political unrest, all while exuding the punk attitude and the prowess that sets them apart.
