Militarie Gun by Daniel Topete

To follow up their recently released EP Life Under The Sun, Los Angeles' Militarie Gun announces Live Under The Sun, a mini-documentary which sees the band and a host of their Life Under The Sun collaborators reunite at Manchester Orchestra’s Atlanta studio for a special live take on the EP, with guest performances from Manchester Orchestra, Marisa Dabice of Mannequin Pussy, and Christine Goodwyne of Pool Kids, who steps in for Alicia Bognanno of Bully for a performance of "Never Fucked Up Twice." Live Under The Sun provides a window into the growing community around Militarie Gun while highlighting bandleader Ian Shelton’s dynamic and expectation-defying songwriting in a new way.

Additionally, Militarie Gun will be performing across the globe this spring, summer and into the fall. The band has a full slate of 2024 festivals that includes Coachella, Welcome to Rockville, Primavera Sound, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Thing Festival, Louder Than Life Festival, Reading & Leeds, Aftershock and more. Additionally, Militarie Gun will be supporting A Day To Remember, The Story So Far, and Four Year Strong on select dates this June before heading to Australia for a string of dates at the end of June and July with Hockey Dad. Full tour routing can be found below.

Life Under The Sun strips back a selection of songs from Militarie Gun’s breakout debut album Life Under The Gun, which was released last summer, putting Ian Shelton’s intensely personal songwriting center stage. Life Under The Sun includes "Never Fucked Up Twice" featuring Bully's Alicia Bognanno, "Very High (Under The Sun)," "My Friends Are Having A Hard Time" featuring Manchester Orchestra, "Will Logic" featuring Mannequin Pussy, and the cover of NOFX track "Whoops I OD'd."

Life Under The Gun was one of 2023's most celebrated albums, released to praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NME, Revolver, Stereogum, SPIN, Paste, The FADER, and more. The album landed on multiple best albums of 2023 lists including Alternative Press, The Ringer, UPROXX, Stereogum and Rolling Stone, who said Life Under The Gun has "taken everything that’s uniquely cathartic about the hardcore and lacquered it with insanely catchy melodies." That catchiness has been on full display on TV with Taco Bell's ad campaign that prominently features Life Under The Gun's "Do It Faster."
