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.
