Milk Premiere “Lord, Don’t Take Me To Prison” with Clrvynt

Horsetown Threshold out June 2nd on Midnight Werewolf Records

East Coast Tour Dates Announced

Boston’s Milk will release their new album Horsetown Threshold on June 2nd via Midnight Werewolf Records (Kal Marks, Fórn, Pleasure Gap). Following lead single “Too High To Drive” (FLOOD Magazine), the quartet are sharing “Lord, Don’t Take Me To Prison” via Clrvynt.”Lord, Don’t Take Me To Prison” is an alt-country ballad about trying to not feel weird about who you are, a balance the band wanted to convey with the song’s video which Clrvynt called “a basketball showdown between a daydrinking cowboy and a pack of youngins”. Milk have blurred the lines between country twang and slacker indie punk, forming their own sound that’s organic and free. “Lord, Don’t Take Me To Prison” is a thoughtful tune that moseys up with memorable hooks and bright cowboy inspired harmonies.

A portrait of a rock band living in New England, the band’s sophomore album is built on common emotions ranging from the most delicate to the devastatingly heavy. Horsetown Threshold is a reflection on the anxieties of everyday life, the little things that bring you down or pick you up for reasons you can’t quite wrap your head around… time passing, people changing, and the understanding that comes with it. Rooted in distorted rock ‘n’ roll, fuzzy stoner-pop, and alt-country underpinnings, the sound of Horsetown Threshold is eclectic and without boundaries. From twangy lo-fi Americana to blistering slacker punk, Milk’s sound is raw, unpredictable, and shaky by design.

BIO:

Milk is a band out of Boston, MA. Matt Brady (vocals, guitar) and Sam Taber (keys, vocals) started playing together in 2012, cutting their teeth in the local scene and rehearsing in empty Boston University buildings late into the night. After a few incarnations and three releases (Hubba Hubba EP, Et In Arcadia, Contact EP), the band added H.L. Weatherby (drums) and Brian Engles (bass, vocals) to fill out their line-up.Their music is a unique brand of rock that Matt calls “New England Gothic”. Steeped in the current landscape of Boston, their newest LP, Horsetown Threshold, out on Midnight Werewolf Records, marks a broad step forward in their sound. The album was recorded both at home and at The Record Company, and combines thick distorted Americana with mindful songwriting – songs that discuss the full spectrum of human emotions and the anxiety that often happens while trying to make sense of them.

The live show is something to be seen. Never playing the same show twice, they run the gambit of sound, bridging the gap between heavy and delicate. Milk will be touring the album for the majority of the upcoming summer, and Matt will play a host of solo dates as well – rolling it out to as many ears as possible.
