The Dead Milkmen are back in the studio, working on the band’s first new album in six years and the follow-up to 2017’s Welcome to the End of the World EP.

The Dead Milkmen are back with their first new song in two years, a propulsive rocker about a haunted Swedish train that serves as the first taste of the skewed punk outfit’s Welcome to the End of the World EP — and which we’re thrilled to premiere today at Slicing Up Eyeballs. Stream it here.
For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we revisit The Dead Milkmen’s notorious 1988 “performance” of their improbable hit “Punk Rock Girl” on “Club MTV” — which was decidedly not the usual cable-television outlet for such unkempt college radio faves. Watch the whole thing here.

The Dead Milkmen are offering fans a look inside the recording of their new song “Prisoner’s Cinema” via Weathervane Music’s “Shaking Through” series of short documentaries, which are designed to illuminate the “vision and process of recording music.” Plus, they’re offering a free download of the finished product.
Well, here’s a fun one: The Dead Milkmen today shared a radio promo they recorded in 1985 for the University of Pennsylvania’s WXPN radio station, a re-write of “Bitchin’ Camaro” that announces the show “Yesterday’s Now Music Today” is moving from Sunday nights to weekday afternoon. Check it out here.
The Dead Milkmen will head to the West Coast this spring — the important thing here is that we get to the part where you ask them how they’re gonna get there — for a seven-date tour that will take them from Vancover, B.C., down to San Diego playing shows in support of their recently released new album Pretty Music for Pretty People.
After releasing a steady stream of 7-inch singles over the past couple years, The Dead Milkmen return next month with their first new album in three years, a 17-track collection called Pretty Music For Pretty People that, perhaps not surprisingly, contains many of the songs included on those limited-edition 45s.
For this week’s “120 Minutes” Rewind, we revisit an August 1989 episode featuring an appearance by The Dead Milkmen, who cracked wise with host Kevin Seal, read some fan mail on air and stuck around to perform a couple tunes. Check out a 15-minute reel of the band’s hosting segments, plus 2 live songs.
The folks at Freedom Records & Films are in the process of putting together a documentary on Mojo Nixon, that one-of-a-kind loud-mouthed rocker who rose to semi-fame in the late ’80s with singles “Elvis is Everywhere” and “Debbie Gibson is Pregnant with My Two-Headed Love Child.”
The Dead Milkmen return this week with the fourth in their new series of limited-edition 7-inch singles — this one’s called “Welcome to Undertown” — and you can now stream both songs off the vinyl single (the title track and “Streetlamps”) as well as the digital-only bonus track, “The Sun Turns Our Patio Into a Lifeless Hell.”
