MILLIE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP have released the video for Can I Get Off? which appeared on a double AA side 7” single earlier this year with Angry Side and also features on their forthcoming second album Wake Up, Shut Up, Work to be released on 2 August ahead of their headline autumn tour.

The video exposes the rage and grievance that Millie feels about the prevailing state of the world, the intense suffering, the hardship and the immense inequality: The western world is privileged because it has pillaged resources from everyone else in the world. We need to unlearn what we know and recognise the suffering people are going through as a result of our greed. Can I Get Off? is an outpouring of my frustrations about that.”

Talking about the new album, Millie says: “Our sophomore album has been so much more collaborative as a band, and it’s been a really wonderful process in terms of expansion and evolution of our sound while maintaining a lot of what we have already put out on Telling Truths, Breaking Ties. It’s also been a great opportunity to bond as musicians, writing in rooms together in blocks over the last year or so. We are all so proud of what we have achieved, and we all hope that Wake Up, Shut Up, Work has a similarly warm reception when it’s released into the world.
