We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Milkmen’s new song “Johnny Dangerously” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s remixed/remastered version of their self-titled debut album, which is scheduled to be released on September 14, 2018 through Know Hope Records. Also, be on the lookout for a brand new record from Milkmen in early 2019.
You can pre-order the release here.
Milken guitarist/vocalist Ben Thieberger commented on the song: “‘Johnny Dangerously’ was the first song we ever wrote. I still haven’t seen the movie. This song is about overthinking things.”
About the band:
Milkmen is a post indie rock pop jazz experimental punk trio from New Brunswick, NJ. That was long-winded right? They just call it milkpunk: a creamy mix of whatever genre they feel like drawing from, blended into a rich, harmony-laden, groove-changin’, booty-shakin’ amalgam. Also, they’re loud.
Formed in 2014 while attending Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ, Milkmen immediately hit the ground running as part of the thriving underground scene in New Jersey. Drawing on a wide range of influences, from RX Bandits to Weatherbox to The Sidekicks, the band quickly amassed a loyal following in Northern New Jersey, which quickly spread throughout the state, as well as New York, Philadelphia and throughout the Northeast part of the country. Milkmen started actively touring in 2015 and hasn’t slowed down since, touring up and down the East Coast numerous times.
After releasing a few singles, Milkmen self-released their debut self-titled album, recorded at The Kaleidoscope in Lancaster, PA with producer Kory Gable, on December 25, 2015.
