This band has no press



Tainted Milk started out with two long-time friends, William and Ivan getting together with a drum kit and a guitar in hand, and figuring out how to play music. They practiced on their own
for years, and came together to write songs in 2013. During practice
sessions, Will brought in a guitar riff, and Ivan came up with a drum
beat. The songs organically came together, developing more and more with
each jam session. Eventually, they got to the point where they were
happy with the songs they had, and felt confident enough to play live
shows. It was just drums and guitar - no bass player. Somewhat
bare-bones, but they played plenty of open mic performances and a few
small shows. Eventually, they met Paul, a bass player, by chance. Ivan
had to leave for college, so Will was invited by Paul to play in his
metal band. He did so, and eventually invited Paul to join up with
Tainted Milk. The metal band ended up breaking up, and Ivan decided to
take a break from college to focus on music & the band - something
he felt passionate about.

Here we are in 2017 - songs we've written have been refined, and new material keeps us feeling inspired. We released our 'Leafblower E.P.' in May 2016, and followed up with 'No More + Psychedello' in October, 2016. They also played many venues in the SF Bay Area through that year - Red House in Walnut Creek, DNA Lounge in SF, Stork Club in Oakland, Back Bar in San Jose, among others. Tainted Milk only aims to grow and get better and better with time, writing and performing the songs that inspire them.
