Millie Manders and The Shutup
SWEET MELODY // VIDEO
LIFE IS A ROLLERCOASTER // TOUR
“Imagine Skunk Anansie crossed with No Doubt when they were fun, and you pretty much have a handle on MMATS … and I have to say, in all honesty, this is one of the best bands I’ve ever seen …” ROCKTOPIA
“Best gig of the year, in fact many a year, and it will take some topping; if you have not seen Millie Manders and The Shutup live, you haven’t lived yet …” THE PUNK SITE
MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP have released the video for their latest single, SWEET MELODY, a cover of the globally massive Little Mix song. The part-live performance video captures the band on stage interspersed with city street walks as the song blisters along at 100mph, transformed into a breathless, vibrant, ska-infused punk monster.
The band’s reputation as one of the most exhilarating live acts in the country has been enhanced by an already frantic 2022. In the spring they supported the legendary Less Than Jake on their UK and Ireland tour – converting legions of new fans every night in the process – before playing their own headline tour to packed venues in early summer, and countless festival appearances currently throughout the UK including Kendal Calling, Rebellion and North East Calling. To add to that schedule, the band have now confirmed support dates with the incredible Ferocious Dog, their first headline tour of Germany, and their LIFE IS A ROLLERCOASTER headline UK tour throughout the autumn.
“This is our biggest tour to date,” says Millie, “and our first proper tour on EU mainland soil, so we are all naturally buzzing about it. Our headline tour and the Less Than Jake tour were nothing short of mind blowing. We could never have imagined so many people coming out to see us and just how many voices we would hear singing our songs with us. We have made lifelong friends and incredible memories that we will always cherish.”
Fronted by Millie’s staggering vocal dexterity and backed by grinding guitars, irresistible horns and a huge amount of pop appeal, MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP are rightly renowned for their power and energy. Their debut album, TELLING TRUTHS, BREAKING TIES, is available now on CD and vinyl formats from www.millie-manders.com
