Los Angeles' Militarie Gun kicks off 2024 with the announcement of a new EP Life Under The Sun - out now via Loma Vista Recordings. The new EP 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.

Along with the previously shared singles "Never Fucked Up Twice" featuring Bully's Alicia Bognanno and "Very High (Under The Sun)," the forthcoming EP will include the new single "My Friends Are Having A Hard Time" featuring Manchester Orchestra, arriving today with a visualizer directed by Isaac Deitz featuring Shelton and Manchester Orchestra's Andy Hull. Additionally, Life Under The Sun will feature Mannequin Pussy on a new version of "Will Logic" and include a cover of the NOFX track "Whoops I OD'd."

The EP arrives as Militarie Gun prepares to kick off their headline North American tour that will see the band play 31 dates across the country before wrapping on March 9th. Support for the North American tour will be Pool Kids and Spiritual Cramp with Death Lens, Spaced, and Roman Candle on select dates. Tickets are available HEREMilitarie Gun will also be performing at Coachella, LDB Fest, Welcome To Rockville, Sonic Temple Festival, Primavera Sound, and Bonnaroo this year in addition to their headlining shows.

Life Under The Gun has proven to be 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. That catchiness has been on full display on TV over the past few weeks as Taco Bell has rolled out their new ad campaign that prominently features Life Under The Gun's "Do It Faster."
