Speech phobia – Milestones release a track on it

Milestones have just revealed their brand new video for Once Upon A Time, which is the third track to be taken from the band’s debut album Red LightsThe video sees the band perform in a Victorian theatre, which cuts into a narrative of a young boy battling stage fright. Frontman Matt Clarke has said of the track, Once Upon A Time is a song that was about a speech phobia I suffered from whilst growing up. It’s about how you can turn any fear or hurdle in life into a positive, and strive for greatness.

They will join bands such as Jimmy Eat World, State Champs, Taking Back Sunday and many more across 3 days at Slam Dunk Festival.
