THE MILK CARTON KIDS PREMIERE NEW SONG “I’LL BE GONE”
THE ONLY ONES OUT OCTOBER 18
SOLD-OUT “A NIGHT WITH THE MILK CARTON KIDS IN
VERY SMALL VENUES AT VERY LOW TICKET PRICES
TOUR” KICKS OFF OCTOBER 3

Critically acclaimed The Milk Carton Kids are debuting their new track “I’ll Be Gone” today; listen/share below. The track hails from their forthcoming album The Only Ones, set for release on October 18 via the band’s own Milk Carton Records imprint in partnership with Thirty Tigers.

Singer Joey Ryan jokes, “The narrator in ‘I’ll Be Gone’ is a badass woman. Hopefully the fact that it’s sung by two relatively effete guys doesn’t ruin it.” The duo recently premiered the album’s title track “The Only Ones” (Listen HERE)

and “I Meant Every Word I Said” (Listen HERE),

both of which speak to the core of what The Milk Carton Kids are about musically: the duo. Off the heels of their previous full band effort, The Only Ones brings the group back to their roots.

The Milk Carton Kids are set to tour the U.S. this fall on their sold-outA Night with the Milk Carton Kids in Very Small Venues at Very Low Ticket Prices Tour.” The intimate shows put them back into small venues where they started, with the special bonus of all ticket prices under twenty dollars. See below for a complete tour itinerary.

Founded in 2011, The Milk Carton Kids swiftly emerged as a major force in the American folk tradition, blending ethereal harmonies and intricate musicianship with a uniquely powerful brand of contemporary songcraft. 2013’s ANTI-debut, The Ash & Clay, proved their national breakthrough, earning The Milk Carton Kids their first Grammy Award nomination, for “Best Folk Album.” A second Grammy nomination for “Best American Roots Performance” followed in 2015, honoring “The City of Our Lady,” from The Milk Carton Kids’ acclaimed third studio album, Monterey.
