Manchester’s Hot Milk are a band brimming with sheer force, delivering high octane alternative-rock-meets-mainstream-pop driven by big riffs, big choruses and equally bigger amounts of upbeat energy. Their debut EP 'Are You Feeling Alive?' demonstrates this, headed up by Han Mee and Jim Shaw’s flair for lifeful pop hooks. Having toured with the likes of rock royalty Foo Fighters and UK favourites You Me At Six, Hot Milk have grown in confidence, charisma and volume ever since. On the brink of releasing their brand new EP 'I JUST WANNA KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I’M DEAD' and with a UK tour to follow, we spoke to co-vocalists/co-guitarists Mee and Shaw backstage at the Download Pilot event, discussing their excitement for the new era of Hot Milk, the decision to release another EP and more.
