|Only days after releasing their why we’ll never be together EP, THE MILLION announce they will be taking their new release on tour this September. Details of the why we’ll never be together tour sees the four-piece taking in venues across Melbourne, Sydney, Wollongong and Brisbane with tickets on sale today from here. |
Today’s news comes off the back of the band’s recent Last Call Tour which saw The Million play two sold out Sydney shows as well as the official Yours and Owls pre-party event.
The why we’ll never be together EP is full of raw, vivid lyrics that centre around an emotionally turbulent time for lead-singer and lyricist Jacob Thomas. Specifically, it’s the story of the breakdown of a relationship and all the motions that you go through afterward from bitterness to liberation.
Included on the why we’ll never be together EP are singles, ‘Somebody Better’, ‘Rebound’ ‘Last Call’, ‘Check Up’, ‘Stop/Go’ and brand new track ‘Speed Dial’.
The Million worked with a list of esteemed collaborators on their new EP. From revered US producer Colin Brittain (Hands Like Houses, All Time Low) as well as Australian producers Chris Collins(Middle Kids, Gang Of Youths) and Dylan Nash (Angus & Julia Stone) to producers including Dom Craik (Nothing But Thieves) who worked on ‘Last Call’ and Nick Anderson (The Wrecks) who added additional production to ‘Somebody Better’. UK mixer Stephen Sedgwick (Gorillaz) and writer Lucy Taylor (Dua Lipa, Friendly Fires, Dagny, Ellie Goulding) also contributed to the EP.
The result is a project that moves seamlessly from slick pop to fuzzier alternative moments. As bitter and frustrated as the lyrics can get, the soundscapes remain buoyant and immediate.
