HOMETOWN : Wakefield, Yorkshire , UK
MILLOY play loud, impassioned catchy punk/rock songs that burn with a melodic ferocity rarely heard on this side of the Atlantic since LEATHERFACE and SNUFF surfaced in the late 80's.
From their debut EP release in 2001 “Autodrivel” on, Milloy have created a huge interest and support from the UK underground scene. Milloy re-shaped the mould in terms of the pop-punk bands that had been so plentiful in West Yorkshire and England in the 90’s and did this by injecting intelligent song writing that was fuelled with angst and delivered as if their lives depended on it. With the 2002 EP “Belt Up” confirming this, the band then focussed on their live performances and began to tour.
In mid 2004 Jim McManus left the band the rest of the band decided to continue writing and search for a new singer. With an album half written and no-one up to the job on vocals in December do, after 4 months of searching for a replacement, Jim re-joined the band.
Their debut album “More Than a Machine” was released in July 2005.. The album showed yet another shift in Milloy’s ability to add further dimensions to their sound, this time in a much darker harder hitting vein.
In 2006 Milloy recorded 2 songs for a split release with “Billy No Mates” who feature Duncan Redmonds (Snuff / Guns N’Wankers) on vocals and drums.
Milloy have always proved themselves as phenomenal live band as well as being devastating loud and in 2005 they toured the US with the likes of The Draft, Latterman, The Tim Version, Whiskey and Co, Ninja Gun, Strikeforce Diablo.
Back in the UK, Milloy have toured the UK with A Death in The Family (Australia), Leatherface, Former Cell Mates, Chuck Ragan, The Loved Ones as well numerous headline shows.
In October 2007 the album “More Than a Machine” was re-packaged, re-mastered and re-released on Household Name Records. In January 2008 their first BBC Radio 1 session was aired.
Milloy started work on their 2nd full length album "Creating Problems while Practising Solutions" in April 2008, released on Household Name Records on 4th August 2008.
