"Gritty, poetic descriptions of life up
north..."- The Guardian
Having released their debut album Well Well Well ten years ago, Sheffield indie rockers Milburn return with their latest single Take Me Home, out on 26th May 2017 via Red Essential.
Known as the band who helped kick start the Sheffield revival alongside the likes of the Arctic Monkeys, Milburn’s new single feels refreshingly modern. Take Me Home sits comfortably between the anthemic sounds of noughties favourites The Strokes, indie newcomers Blossoms and Spring King and the sounds of Sheffield’s local music scene.
Over the past ten years, Milburn have received support from the likes of NME, Gigwise, Clash and BBC 6Music’s Steve Lamacq, Radcliffe and Maconie and Chris Hawkins to name but a few. After being away for ten years, Milburn recently reformed due to overwhelming popular demand. As a result, the band have sold out four massive anniversary shows in their hometown with a combined capacity of 10,000 tickets sold in under 5 minutes and a further 11,000 tickets for a sold out UK tour. They have also announced a 12,000 capacity hometown show on 2nd June 2017 at Don Valley Bowl with support from Reverend & The Makers and Cabbage.
The show will celebrate the release of the band’s new single and the upcoming release of their third studio album, which has been recorded in Liverpool with help from critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Bill Ryder-Jones.

2nd June - Don Valley Bowl - Sheffield
