Milburn have announced a 15th anniversary tour of their debut album Well Well Well including a Manchester gig.
The band will play three shows in their favourite UK venues including Manchester’s O2 Ritz.
The tour will celebrate the anniversary of the album as well as the release of 1,000 special edition double LPs of the first pressing on vinyl. Sides A & B contain the standard issue album tracks from the 2006 CD release whilst C & D carry all the B Sides, bonus tracks and a selection of live tracks from the band’s homecoming Leadmill (Sheffield) show from 2006.
Speaking about the release, lead singer Joe Carnell explains, “I get at least one request a week on social media for Well Well Well to be released on vinyl. I think many of our fans see it as a hole in their collection so it will be nice to help them complete the set. That album means so much to people.” Asked why the record wasn’t released on wax the first time around, Carnall admitted that he “genuinely didn’t know. 2006 was perhaps the early days of the ‘vinyl revival’ and so maybe the record company thought it wasn’t worth the effort – idiots.” In addition, the band have commissioned a one-off t-shirt design in memory of their dear friend Anthony Allen. All profits from its sale will go to charity.
