Story by Jack Foley

THE Milk have announced details of a mammoth 28-date UK tour, commencing in the Spring 2012.

The nationwide trek will begin in Canterbury on March 1 before concluding with the band’s biggest headline show to date over a month later at The Scala in London on April 4.

This follows news of The Milk’s new single, B-Roads, which is released on December 19 via Sign Of The Times/Sony, and which has already been playlisted at XFM and picked up additional spins from the likes of Zane Lowe, Mistajam and Huey Morgan.

The Milk were nominated for Best Breakthrough Artist at the UK Festival Awards this summer, going up against the likes of Bruno Mars and Jessie J.

In London alone, the last year has seen The Milk perform rammed-out headline shows across the likes of Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, Dingwalls, The Jazz Cafe, XOYO and Camden Barfly, predominately whilst still unsigned.

With a new single scheduled for the spring, the band’s first extensive UK tour will see them preview songs from their forthcoming debut album, which is being produced by celebrated DJ and remixer Brad Baloo (The Nextmen).
