MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP have announced their new single, YOUR STORY, and accompanying video. The single is the second to be taken from their debut album TELLING TRUTHS, BREAKING TIES, set for release on 23 October. You can watch the video below:
“Your Story was inspired by a short, intense relationship where I was, unfortunately, a rebound,” says Millie about the song. ‘Having being very guarded, it took me a long time to let this person in. They said all the right things and I fell. That was when they decided they had said it all too early. Watching their ‘stories’ on social media and wishing I was still part of them inspired the chorus, the first part of the song to be written.”
To coincide with the release, a limited-edition T Shirt and vest are now available from the band’s official website with £5 from each sale being donated to NHS Charities Together: https://millie-manders.com/
YOUR STORY is available to purchase now from all the usual platforms.
The band’s full UK tour in April naturally had to be postponed. The dates are being rescheduled for when it’s safe to do so, and an announcement on the full tour will follow as soon as possible. In the meantime, several have already been rescheduled as follows:
Sat 07 BRISTOL Louisiana
Sat 21 NEWCASTLE Head of Steam
Sat 19 PLYMOUTH Junction
Sat 24 KINGSTON Fighting Cocks
Fri 30 BOLSOVER Carr Vale FC
MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP create cross-genre punk that’s increasingly hard to ignore. With lyrics that discuss loss, betrayal, anger, anxiety, heartbreak, bitterness, environmental catastrophe and political unrest, they inspire the questioning of social norms without ever missing a beat. Fronted by Millie’s staggering vocal dexterity and backed by grinding guitars, irresistible horns and a huge amount of pop appeal, their live shows are electric.
