Boston's premier gloom pop band are asking their fans for assistance in making their new EP a reality.

The Milling Gowns are Boston's premier gloom pop band, conjuring up the mood and rhythm section power of Joy Division, with the vocal & lyrical strength of Magnetic Fields and evocative guitar work of the Cure, with a dream-pop/shoegaze icing that makes their sound truly unique. They are currently finalizing work on their hotly anticipated sophomore studio release, an EP entitled Something Dangerous Loves Me. It is at this point that the Milling Gowns require financial backing in order to bring this work to fruition, which will cast light upon the dramatic development of the 4-piece's sound from their first full-length release, Diving Bell Shallows, which featured orchestral arrangements en lieu of their now quite edgy, tight rock formation - something which the group's live audiences have experienced first-hand but until now the band's far-flung and international following has been able to follow only by intermittent demo releases via Soundcloud. For this financial backing, the Milling Gowns are turning to their fans, asking them to become a part of their upcoming EP release, and in turn to receive limited edition rewards ranging from excusive rare recordings to small-print artworks by band members.
