Hot Milk have announced a UK tour for this Autumn. The dates will see them hit seven dates across the UK, culminating at Londons Islington Academy on 16th September.

Their forthcoming EP I Just Wanna Know What Happens When I’m Dead was produced by co-vocalist Jim Shaw and lyrically explores a more personal approach with the band bottling the anxieties and frustrations of their everyday lives. Woozy openly tackles depression, Good Life takes on societal corruption and the distribution of wealth, while elsewhere the band address the pursuit of happiness in a modern world.

“These songs are honest,” says Han. “I have nothing to hide. Everyone’s on anti-depressants these days. It’s the world we live in, it makes people sad. Capitalism. Is it broken? 100 per cent. I’m angry that the fact that we’re sold a world that actually doesn’t make your inner peace happy. Humans need love and community and a lot of the time, there is no love and the community has dissolved.”

“We’re angry, both politically and existentially in terms of the system we now live in. But also, we’re angry at the fact that we’re sad quite a lot,” continues Han. “But we’re trying to not just sit there and take it. We’re trying to fix it, by building a family through this band.”

“Life is fragile,” says Jim. “You can’t take things with you, but you can make the best memories. That’s the most important thing in life. Your currency is your memory. What you can take with you is something that absolutely makes the blood pump round your veins and gives you goose bumps,” agrees Han. “That’s what this band is to us. It’s our passion. That’s what this EP is about.”

As co-vocalist Han Mee states, in a way only she can, “I hope it happens, I’m sick of this shit”.

Let’s hope so!

Hot Milk are vocalist and guitarist Han Mee, guitarist Jim Shaw, Bassist Tom Paton and drummer Harry Deller.
