Milk Maid announce UK tour dates

MILKMAIDMilk Maid will tour the UK to promote their debut album Yucca. Recorded in songwriter Martin Cohen’s flat, when the indefinite hiatus of Nine Black Alps meant the bassist found he had time on his hands, the record is due for released on the 20th of June.

The result is an album that might have come out on Creation Records in their 80’s heyday, recalling indie stalwarts like Comet Gain and marrying timeless pop hooks with the raw spontaneity of home recording. Sweet, sun-drenched pop hooks are pitched against viscerally dark lyrics that explore disintegrating relationships and emotional conflict to a backdrop of Cohen’s Manchester hometown.

Dates as are follows:

May 9 – Brudenell Social Club, Leeds w/The Fresh & Onlys
May 10 – Stereo, Glasgow w/The Fresh & Onlys
May 11 – Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, w/ The Fresh & Onlys
May 15 – Great Escape Festival @Jam, Brighton (w/ Mazes)
May 16 – Shacklewell Arms, London
May 22 – Friends of Mine Festival, Macclesfield
