Millie Manders and The Shutup tour comes to Bournemouth

Millie Manders and The Shutup tour comes to Bournemouth

Fresh from their recent Slam Dunk Winter Jam tour in January with Zebrahead, Teenage Bottle Rocket and [Spunge] cross-genre punk band Millie Manders and The Shutup  have announced a double AA side 7” single to coincide with their previously announced UK tour throughout the spring, bringing them to Bournemouth in April.

Angry Side and Can I Get Off? will be released on 5 April alongside a range of new T-Shirts to help raise funds for Mercy Without Limits:

Talking about the single, Millie Manders says: “Angry Side is, I guess, a letter from my teenage self, apologising for being so angry and wanting to burn down the world. I had a lot going on back then and I hid behind bravado a lot. I suppose it’s also me telling my younger self that it’s OK to have been that angry when I went through a bunch of trauma that I couldn’t process well enough to deal with it all. I was a kid.”

She continues: “The western world is privileged because it has pillaged resources from everyone else in the world. We need to unlearn what we know and recognise the suffering people are going through as a result of our greed. Can I Get Off? is an outpouring of my frustrations about that and, ultimately, the reason we are fundraising for Mercy Without Limits.”

7” single and T-Shirt bundles pre-order: 

Known for their ferocious and joyous live shows and championed by the likes of the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, BBC Introducing, Radio X and Vive Le Rock, the band will release their second album later this year. The eagerly awaited new album follows their acclaimed debut Telling Truths, Breaking Ties.

With grinding guitars, irresistible horns, huge amounts of pop appeal and candid lyrics, the band delve into themes such as loss, betrayal, anxiety, heartbreak, environmental concerns and political unrest, all while exuding the punk attitude and the prowess that sets them apart.

MMATSU have built a strong reputation through their live shows and versatile discography. Their live performances have graced stages at such notable festival as Slam Dunk, Bearded Theory, Rebellion, North West Calling, Kendal Calling and Boomtown, and they’ve previously supported the likes of Less Than Jake and Ferocious Dog on tour.

Beyond their music, the band’s commitment to sustainability and charity is always evident, prioritising eco-friendly merchandise and raising funds for charitable causes through limited edition artwork and clothing sales. With their dedication to making a positive impact in the music industry, MMATSU continue to be a vital voice in the burgeoning cross-genre punk scene.

Millie Manders and The Shutup are Millie Manders on vocals, guitar and alto sax; Joe Quigley on guitar; Georgina Boreham on bass; and Pete Wright on drums and samples.
