The Milk have announced plans for a new single from their acclaimed UK Top 20 charting debut album Tales From The Thames Delta, The band will release '(All I Wanted Was) Danger' on November 12 through Sign Of The Times / Sony.
This coincides with their biggest UK tour to date, which will include a headline show at London's Shepherds Bush Empire on November 29. The news follows an extensive period of activity across the summer, including a sell-out performance at London's Scala and a host of UK festivals (Isle of Wight, Ibiza Rocks, V Festival, Lounge on The Farm).
'(All I Wanted Was) Danger' was conceived during this period, and proved to be the turning point in The Milk'smusical and professional lives. Days were spent working a series of stop-gap jobs (builder, teacher in a special needs school, pharmaceutical salesman). Nights, however, were dedicated to channelling this frustration into new songs and sounds: all of which were - and often still are - written and recorded in their garden shed.
The first fruit of this overhaul was '(All I Wanted Was) Danger', which became as much a motto to live by as a killer tune (with two choruses). A thrilling burst of soulful pop, 'Danger' feels influenced by a love of The Style Council, the restless energy of 'Born To Run', and the call-and-response choruses of The Vandellas or The Ronettes. It is an immediate and immersive mix: classic, contemporary and expertly-crafted. While they've found the danger they were after, you sense The Milk are only just getting started.
