Milk III Album Release Shows Announced

Artists throughout Aotearoa are coming together to celebrate the sonic vision of Reuben Samuel Winter (Waitaha / Kāi Tahu / Te Aupōuri / Te Rarawa / Ngāti Kuri), whose as yet unheard Milk III album is being posthumously released via Flying Nun Records this April. A furiously adventurous artist whose output included Totems, Caroles, Bandicoot, Kerosene Comic Book and lots more, Reuben's energising and irreplaceable presence has been dearly missed by our community since he died by suicide in September last year. Launching in collaboration with Reuben's whānau, Milk III will be out on black vinyl LP and digitally on 20th April, with all profits split between Fibromyalgia Aotearoa New Zealand (he lived with fibromyalgia and chronic pain for close to a decade) and his whānau and future fund. Record release shows have been announced today in Pōneke, Ōtepoti and his hometown of Tāmaki Makaurau, featuring a legion of friends playing in tribute to the king — vinyl copies of Milk III will be available at the shows, here are the details...

From the organisers: "It is our priority to facilitate an environment for those who loved, knew and admired Reuben to feel safe in expressing our collective grief. As such, we ask that attendees be conscious of one another's vulnerabilities during this time. Our kaupapa is that this is a space for aroha, and there will be zero tolerance of harassment, violence, discrimination, drunkenness or insensitivity. Please notify Whammy staff, security or the door person if you or someone you know feels unsafe."

Experience Reuben Winter's 2019 solo Milk live to air set for Radio One 91FM (with an amazing intro)...
