The Milk Men Announce New Album “Holy Cow!” Alongside Debut Single and Video Release

The Milk Men, renowned for their electrifying performances and innovative R&B take on the blues-rock sound, are thrilled to announce the forthcoming release of their latest, and fifth, album, “Holy Cow!”
Dovetailing this exciting news is debut single “One Man Band” and its accompanying video; both help set the stage for what promises to be a standout record in a career that has already achieved some notable highlights.

“One Man Band” exudes classic country rock vibes with an irresistible groove. Carrying a sing-along chorus that’s already a hit with live audiences (crowds enthusiastically joining in to chant “raise your hand… for the one man band!”), the song lyrically delves into the complexities of a relationship, where one person has mentally and emotionally moved on, struggling to justify their departure to themselves and partner.

Scheduled for release on May 3rd, “Holy Cow!” marks the band’s fifth studio album, following a string of critically acclaimed releases. With a reputation as one of the most dynamic and enjoyable live acts on the circuit, The Milk Men have earned five nominations at the UK Blues Awards and were finalists in the UK Blues Challenge, solidifying their status as premier purveyors of British R’n’B talent.

Comprising former Pirate Mike Roberts on drums, Lloyd Green (son of guitar legend Mick Green) on bass guitar, husky blues-hued singer Jamie Smy on vocals, and the guitar prowess of Adam Norsworthy (also known for his work with The Mustangs), The Milk Men bring a wealth of experience and musical pedigree to their latest offering.

Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of influences (from AC/DC to Stevie Wonder), The Milk Men infuse Dr. Feelgood vibe’d R&B with a modern edge, characterized by their signature attack, energy, melody, bags of hooks and a sense of fun.

“Holy Cow!” showcases the band’s evolution and raw authenticity. Guitarist and co-producer Adam Norsworthy shares his excitement about the album, stating, “This album is leaner, tougher, and more dynamic than any we have made before… but still dripping with hooks and some great lyrics. It’s very much what we do… just better than ever!”

Lead singer Jamie adds, “I see this album as having a number of core themes which could all be bracketed under ‘the blues’ in terms of subject matter, if not musically. ‘Holy Cow’ is far rawer than our other albums with less overdubs and less backing vocals, but still packed with hooks, melody, and attitude. It’s the closest we’ve got to The Milk Men live experience in the studio.”

The band’s busy 2024 schedule will include a series of live performances throughout the UK, providing fans with ample opportunity to experience their electrifying stage presence first hand — don’t miss The Milk Men as they deliver the essence of “Holy Cow!” to audiences across the UK.
