MILLY have announced their new album, Your Own Becoming, will drop on June 28th via Dangerbird Records. Along with the news, the band have shared lead single & video “Drip From The Fountain.”. The album, produced by Sonny DiPerri (Cherry Glazerr, Narrow Head, My Bloody Valentine). MILLY will join Narrow Head on a run of West Coast dates this month, after celebrating their album announce in Los Angeles at Permanent Records this Friday, April 5th.

On the single, principal songwriter and vocalist Brendan Dyer shares “This was the final song we wrote for the record. I’m trying to just soak in being a person and enjoying my time and especially observing as much stuff as I can. The dark especially. ‘Time is running out but this moment feels nice’ is truly where my head was at.”

Work on this release started thanks to a revelation that can only come from a period of personal crisis. Dyer, who’s dealt with anxiety for most of his life, decided to go on long walks every morning where he’d process his emotions, clear his mind, and do something that got him out of the house. “I think about death all the time,” says Dyer. “At this point in my life, I’m extremely aware of how time moves quickly.” While these thoughts could have devolved into potentially overwhelming him, this daily ritual allowed him some space. He jotted down notes from his dreams and he used his dread to grab onto the sustaining force in his life: his band. While the band’s debut LP 2022’s Eternal Ring and past tours with Swervedriver were successes, he wanted to be laser-focused on both his songwriting and his bandmates in the following year as he’d never done before.

MILLY embraced a newfound collaborative approach for Your Own Becoming, something that was only hinted at on 2022’s Eternal Ring. After a few months of painstakingly demoing songs, Dyer, along with bassist Yarden Erez and drummer Connor Frankel, decamped with DiPerri to East West Studios and Dangerbird’s Recording Studio in Los Angeles. (New guitarist Nico Moreta joined the band after recording).
