Milk Music releases a rare track for download, expands tour; Great Escape Fest puts tix on sale
Milk Music at Death By Audio last year (more by BBG)
Milk Music's previously discussed NYC date at 285 Kent and appearance at Pitchfork has expanded considerably into a tour that will include the Northwest, Midwest and into the East Coast. Full tour itinerary is below.
Milk Music recently released "Violence Now," a track previously available on a small run of flexi discs that came with the NUTS! Fanzine. Check that out below. The band's EP, the late 2010 favorite Beyond Living, was recently released to iTunes for the first time (vinyl only before that) as well. Milk Music also recently made their Primavera performance available for download via WFMU.
Milk Music played this year's Great Escape festival in Brighton, West Sussex, UK in May 2012. The 2103 edition goes down May 16-18, 2013, and like this year will probably have 300+ artists at over 30 venues . Early bird tickets are on sale. No 2013 lineup yet though.
Nude Beach, who play with Milk Music at their 285 Kent show on 7/23, will meanwhile play both tonight (6/28) with White Lung at Tommy's Tavern and Friday (6/29) with The Young at 285 Kent. The show is the third of three shows for The Young in the NYC area (they play Maxwell's tonight, 6/28).
Milk Music tour dates and a stream of "Violence Now" is below.
