English modern rock band Hot Milk released their debut album “A Call To The Void” on August and to support that they did their first headline European tour. Band visited Netherlands, Germany and France and after that the band is touring a bit in their home country England until they go to conquer Japan and Australia. Almost the whole tour was already sold out weeks before the tour even started which tells that the name Hot Milk is really getting out there. Formed in 2018 by the singers and guitarists Hannah “Han” Mee and Jim Shaw they’ve already played some big festivals like Download and Reading in their home country and Lollapalooza in Paris France as well as supported acts such as Foo Fighters and You Me At Six.
Chaoszine went to check out their live action in Paris in a small and intimate venue called Les Étoiles. The show was the only one that wasn’t sold out on their tour but there were still bunch of audience having a good time. Hot Milk‘s show started with their debut album opener “Horror Show” which got the crowd moving immediately and the night’s first circle pit was on. Mee and Shaw took the stage with an massive energy and taking the crowd under their spell immediately while the bassist Tom Paton and drummer Harry Deller kept the rhythm tight. Crowd had a great energy singing the songs throughout the Hot Milk show and people were crowd surfing and stage diving and the band even invited one fan to sing a song on stage with them. You can clearly see the energy and emotion on their show and how Mee and Shaw and the whole band are pouring every emotion they got into putting up a great show. The show ended with an encore “Glass Spiders”. 17-song setlist for the show consisted almost their whole brand new debut album except one track and bunch of their previous single releases as well as the fan favourites.
If you have missed the band before, we’d recommend to go check Hot Milk out now while their still making their way up before they blow up to a even bigger audience. It will definitely be worth it. Hot Milk are clearly up to something bigger and it’s for sure not a bad thing. You can see the photos, setlist and remaining tour dates down below. Support act for the show in Europe was Superlove which was also from England and who also just released their new album previously this year.
