The Milk present ‘No Interruptions’, a blazingly soulful return signalling the release of their second album.

Sometimes it takes a few bumps to find the right direction; often it involves experience, guts and self-belief to trust yourself and venture from one to find another. The Milk are a band that believe with utter conviction that they’ve now found their way. Fuelled by a rediscovery of the music and artists that originally inspired their formation, the four walls of their studio were ablaze with a soundtrack of Bill Withers, Isaac Hayes and the Isley Brothers throughout the songwriting process for their second album.

Genuine Version

The Bee’s Paul Butler, who proved his production mastery with Michael Kiwanuka’s Mercury Prize nominated debut, invited the band to record at Chale Abbey, a medieval barn on the Isle of Wight. Guided by Butler, the sessions here captured the genuine version of The Milk: the sounds and honesty of soul.

Eager to share their new songs, ‘Deliver Me’ was released as free download and limited 7″ single in November 2014 – finding its way onto the playlists of BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne, Huey Morgan and Gilles Peterson – while The Milk’s dedicated fans packed out Tufnell Park’s The Dome for the band’s triumphant live return.

With their second album set for release this autumn, The Milk take to the stage on 2nd July for an intimate show at Hackney’s Oslo to unveil their new songs in full for the first time.

The Milk are:
Rick Nunn (lead vocals, guitar, keys)
Mitch Ayling (drums, vocals, keys)
Dan Legresley (lead guitar, vocals)
Luke Ayling (bass guitar)
