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.

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.

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.” 

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.

Supports for the forthcoming tour will be Voodoo Radio and All Ears Avow.

I am a photographer/musician/engineer living in Scotland. My passion is music and motocross and I share my work on facebook/punk4RT and facebook/madmaxmedia. I do like a bit of throw back to the heydays of the 60’s/70’s/80’s when it comes to taking shots of bands. I grew up on the music papers (NME/Sounds/Melody Maker) and drew influence from Pennie Smith/Jill Furmanovsky/Anton Corbijn/Bob Gruen/Adrian Boot/Charles Peterson.
