By January 17, 2022 Manchester, News

Following their first full headline UK tour in the autumn celebrating the release of their debut album, TELLING TRUTHS, BREAKING TIES, most of which were sold out and included several O2 Academy shows, MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP are now preparing to support Less Than Jake on their UK and Ireland tour alongside Skinny Lister and The Toasters.

The headline tour cemented the band’s position as one of the most essential and exhilarating emerging live bands in the country, with the rapturous receptions from audiences being matched by the reviews and press and radio coverage.

“Our first headline tour was nothing short of mind blowing,” says Millie. “As a band, 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 incredible vocal dexterity and backed by grinding guitars, irresistible horns and a huge amount of pop appeal, MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP shows are renowned for their power and energy. With the launch of their debut album, accompanying videos for its six singles, and a commitment that there will never be plastic wrapping on any merchandise or release, the band are striving to make a difference whilst keeping us brilliantly entertained.

TELLING TRUTHS, BREAKING TIES is available on CD and vinyl formats from alongside a range of limited-edition clothing and artwork that raises funds for NHS Charities Together, The Survivors Trust (the 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, MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP have propelled themselves 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 has become impossible to ignore.
