Manchester, UK - HOT MILK have today released new single "I Fell In Love With Someone That I Shouldn't Have" HERE
"THIS IS NOT A FKIN LOVE SONG" says Shaw. "This is revenge. Han started writing this at 16 'n we revisited it and made it into a heartbreak anthem that is not about wallowing, it’s about getting your own back. This is a song about reclaiming power from an abusive relationship and coming back twice as strong, maybe overly. They won’t fuck with you again."

Telling a story of tearaways, delinquents and being the King & Queen of their own dark underworld, fighting the patriarchy. Hot Milk deliver that infectious rage that can only come from being the outcasts and now are taking back control to create a movement of their own with forthcoming EP "The King And Queen Of Gasoline" - produced by Hot Milk is out 5th August 2022 on Music For Nations.
The six track EP follows on from 2019's " Are You Feeling Alive?' and 2021's "I JUST WANNA KNOW THAT HAPPENS WHEN I'M DEAD" which not only garnered 30 million streams, it propelled them into the spotlight with both critical acclaim and winning tours with the Foo Fighters, The Band Camino, Pale Waves and more.
"The King And Queen Of Gasoline " EP creates a storyline of overcoming resistance from control, whether its parental or relationships that have evoked feelings of being stifled and judged. These themes are threaded within the music which has become a lifeline to the band.
“We wanted to personify this feeling of oppression and give it a face, the bunny cult you'll see visually throughout the record gives us something to rage at." says Jim Shaw.
"The record has come straight from our veins, written and produced by us in a bedroom in Salford" says Han Mee. "This has been a labour of love, almost hate and therapy all in one. Through this record we want to create n intentional space where liberation and the ability to be free of expectation can be lived. We are the King and Queen Of Gasoline. The best at nearly ruining it all, fucking up and everything nearly going up in flames.
