Rather eclipsed by the success of another indie-rocking outfit from their hometown of Sheffield, Milburn nevertheless return to touring ways in September. Excited? Yeah, we bet you are.
The band have also been hard at work on their second album, the follow-up to last year's Well, Well, Well. A MySpace post reads as follows:
"We've been locked up in Brighton, Liverpool and Sheffield writing stuff for a new album. We're going into the studio at the end of Feb/early March to start recording, some of the titles floating about at the moment include: 'What Will You Do (When The Money Goes)', 'Ships At Night', 'Bridges & Bicycles' and 'Stay At Home'. The plan is for a release in the early summer."
