addictive" - Fortitude Magazine

Millie Manders and The Shutup create cross-genre punk that is hard to ignore.
With lyricism that pokes fun, draws you in or leaves you questioning social
norms teamed with incredible vocal dexterity, grinding guitars, irresistible horn
hooks and a pumping rhythm section, the Millie Manders Music Machine
churns out more raw punk fusion than you can shake a stick at, with a huge
amount of Pop appeal.
Millie launched her solo career in 2012, taking her acoustic sound around the
UK, building her loyal fan-base and releasing her first EP “Demon”. Singles
Demon and Raw saw her get airplay on multiple local radio stations including
BBC Introducing Norfolk, Coral Rose Radio in Liverpool, RKC in France,
Krystal Radio in Essex and Shoreditch Radio in London, plus regular spins on
internet stations in New Zealand, Canada and America.
In 2015 Millie formed her band “The Shutup” And released two EP’s, The
Free-P and Obsession Transgression, both to widespread critical acclaim.
“Hole In Your Chest” was given multiple spins on John Kennedy’s “Xposure”
show on X-fm, and Matt Stock’s ‘The Punk Show’ on Team Rock Radio, and
magazines such as Rock Sound, Fortitude, Melographic and MOSH have all
been hugely positive about EP Obsession Transgression and predictive future
of Millie Manders.
2016 saw the band play Tramlines, International Ska Festival and Boomtown
Fair, and 2017 has been an even bigger success, having and played at
several major festivals including Rebellion, Nozstock, Boomtown Fair
Skabour, Big One 6, Pie Race, Camden Rocks and Latitude and completing a
successful UK tour.
2018 is booking up fast with a return to Rebellion already announced along
with appearances at Bearded Theory, Riff Festival, Nice N Sleazy and a
whole load more major festivals in the pipeline ready to be announced.
An “Almost Acoustic EP” is set to be released this spring, and a new full band
EP is being penned, with fresh material making it’s way onto the set lists. The
train that is this force to be reckoned with just keeps on coming.
