Hi, what are you looking for?




“As a band, we could never have imagined so many people coming out to see us and just how many voices we would hear singing our songs with us. We have made lifelong friends and incredible memories that we will always cherish.”

They also hit the Road with Less Than Jake this March and April

MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP played their first full headline UK tour last autumn in celebration of the release of their debut album, TELLING TRUTHS, BREAKING TIES. Most of the tour, which included several O2 Academy shows, was sold out and cemented the band’s position as one of the most essential and exhilarating live bands in the country, with the rapturous receptions from audiences being matched by the reviews and press and radio coverage.

Our first headline tour was nothing short of mind-blowing,” says Millie. “As a band, we could never have imagined so many people coming out to see us and just how many voices we would hear singing our songs with us. We have made lifelong friends and incredible memories that we will always cherish.

The band have also announced a new range of merchandise and a GoFundMe campaign to help raise funds for a new van so they can get to all the gigs they have lined up. Faff, their previous van, recently gave up the ghost after a long period of loyal service, as Millie explains:

Faff ferried us for six years. We went around the UK multiple times and over to the EU, clocking up thousands of miles. It was broken; it beeped every time we locked it; it was draughty; and it was home. Faff started making some strange wheezy noises on 4 February just outside Ealing, rolled off the motorway, stopped and we couldn’t revive it. The teeth on the drive shaft completely sheared off and ruined not only the gearbox but also the clutch. Faff was a wonderful little can of quirks and we will miss it. RIP Faff.

Fronted by Millie’s incredible vocal dexterity and backed by grinding guitars, irresistible horns and a huge amount of pop appeal, MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP shows are renowned for their power and energy. With the launch of their debut album, accompanying videos for its six singles, and a commitment that there will never be plastic wrapping on any merchandise or release, the band are striving to make a difference whilst keeping us brilliantly enthralled.

With extensive support from BBC Introducing and Radio X and appearances at notable festivals such as Boomtown and Rebellion, MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP have propelled themselves into the conscience of both the public and the music industry alike. With lyrics that discuss loss, betrayal, anger, anxiety, heartbreak, bitterness, the environment, and political unrest, they inspire the questioning of social norms with a cross-genre punk that has become irresistible.

TELLING TRUTHS, BREAKING TIES is available on CD and vinyl formats from alongside a range of limited-edition clothing and artwork that raises funds for NHS Charities Together, The Survivors Trust (the umbrella charity for survivors of rape and sexual abuse) and the mental health charities Mind and Papyrus.
