MIlburn set for Dunfermline debut on Friday 7th October!
It’s been ten years since Milburn’s major label debut ‘Well Well Well’. Now the band, who kick started the Sheffield revival that would give birth to – amongst others – Arctic Monkeys and Reverend & The Makers, are back.
When Milburn parted company eight years ago, it seemed that they may be remembered only as an influence on more successful artists still to come – a band’s band perhaps. But over time it became clear that this music would not die, stubbornly refusing to take its place in the backwaters of Spotify. Instead the songs reached a new generation; spread by chants of ‘Miiiilburn’ at other band’s gigs and a new thing called ‘Social Media’.
The Courteeners, Arctic Monkeys and even a One Direction-er fell over themselves to lavish praise on the now defunct four-piece. Now thanks to overwhelming public demand Sheffield’s original heroes are back, selling out four massive anniversary shows in their hometown. A combines capacity of 10,000 tickets in under 6 minutes, and now another 10,000 tickets SOLD OUT nationwide on a september run of dates….
No-one knows what lies ahead, but on the above stats it seems like it could be a very bright second coming…we’ll see you down the front.
Tickets on sale 9am Saturday 16th July via Ticketweb, PJ Molloys and The Old Inn.
