And that’s one more UK band that is deciding to call it a day. This would be Milestones. I have to say, it kills me with this one because they’ve put out consistently great music, which includes their debut record ‘Red Lights’ which for myself, has been one of the finest from this year.
But the decision was mutually agreed, as each of the members looks to pursue other avenues and begin new chapters in their lives.
It’s not too long after Slam Dunk and Roam is already wanting to get out on the road again! The UK Pop-Punkers have announced a run of small shows for the UK next month. Milestones and Wolf Culture will be along as supports for the tour.
Here are the dates.
10th – Tunbridge Well Forum

13th – Milton Keynes Carford Arms
16th – Liverpool Arts Club
17th – Sheffield Record Junkee
