SHUT YOUR MOUTH TOUR
OCTOBER & NOVEMBER 2023
“MMATSU bring fierce and addictive ska punk with emotive and urgent lyrics; tipped as the UK’s answer to The Interrupters with high octane live shows and an attitude backed with morality …” VIVE LE ROCK
“Millie as a frontwoman is a force to be reckoned with and her energy is electric…” BACKSEAT MAFIA
“She’s got an incredible voice …” RADIO X / “There’s just so much spirit in that band…” KERRANG!
“No wonder the end of their set is followed by chants of “one more song” from the crowd; rarely is Slam Dunk hit so hard, so early in the day…” PUNKTUATION
Having recently played Slam Dunk, Bearded Theory and North West Calling festivals, MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP have announced their SHUT YOUR MOUTH tour for later this year as follows:
Cross-genre punk rock has become increasingly hard to ignore. With appearances at other notable festivals such as Kendal Calling and Boomtown, and extensive support from the likes of BBC Introducing and Radio X, the last two years have propelled MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP into the public conscience and the music industry at large.
The band are fronted by Millie’s staggering vocal dexterity, backed by grinding guitars and irresistible horns that have huge pop appeal. The lyrics deliberate on themes of loss, betrayal, anger, anxiety, heartbreak and bitterness, environmental catastrophe and political unrest. With a conscience that ensures zero plastic wrapping on any merchandise, and that limited edition artwork and clothing are sold to help raise money for charities, MMATSU are striving to make a difference whilst keeping us uplifted and brilliantly entertained.
Their live shows are renowned for their power and contagious energy, and this year sees the band writing their highly anticipated sophomore album, scheduled for release in 2024.
MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP are: Millie Manders (vocals, ukulele, alto sax) Joe Quigley (guitars) Georgina Boreham (bass) and Pete Wright (drums, samples)
