Fronted by Millie’s staggering vocal dexterity and backed by grinding guitars, irresistible horns and a huge amount of pop appeal, the band’s live shows are renowned for their power and energy. With the launch of their debut album, accompanying videos for the singles BITTER, BROKEN RECORD, BURNOUT, PANIC, SILENT SCREAMS and YOUR STORY, and a commitment that there will be zero plastic wrapping on any merchandise or release, MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP are striving to make a difference whilst keeping us uplifted and brilliantly entertained.
TELLING TRUTHS, BREAKING TIES is available on CD and vinyl formats from https://millie-manders.com/alongside a range of limited-edition clothing and artwork that raises funds for NHS Charities Together, The Survivors Trust – an umbrella charity for survivors of rape and sexual abuse – and the mental health charities Mind and Papyrus.
With extensive support from BBC Introducing and Radio X and appearances at notable festivals such as Boomtown and Rebellion, the last two years have propelled MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP into the conscience of both the public and the music industry alike. With lyrics that discuss loss, betrayal, anger, anxiety, heartbreak, bitterness, environmental catastrophe and political unrest, they inspire the questioning of social norms with a cross-genre punk that’s becoming increasingly hard to ignore.
