Millie Manders and The Shutup have shared the video for Can I Get Off? taken from their forthcoming second album Wake Up, Shut Up, Work to be released on 2 August.

The video exposes the rage and grievance that Millie feels about the prevailing state of the world, the intense suffering, the hardship and the immense inequality: The western world is privileged because it has pillaged resources from everyone else in the world. We need to unlearn what we know and recognise the suffering people are going through as a result of our greed. Can I Get Off? is an outpouring of my frustrations about that.”

The band have announced details of an autumn headline tour for the forthcoming Wake Up, Shut Up, Work album, the follow up to their acclaimed debut Telling Truths, Breaking Ties. The album will be self-released on 2 August and can be preordered on CD and vinyl here as well as from a number of independent record stores – Rough Trade, Banquet, Resident, Truck, Crash Records, Sister Ray and Cool Discs among others – and Amazon.
