LA-based alt-pop artist and rapper MILES kicks off with a impressive debut EP “Never Have I Ever” via Elektra Records
Legendary multi-platinum and GRAMMY® Award-nominated musician Travis Barker is featured on the title track, along with serving as its primary producer. With its arena-ready chorus and upbeat bassline, the fiery pop-rock song reflects MILES’ dynamic, genre-bending sound. The companion music video for “NEVER HAVE I EVER” is also out today. Directed by Abir Hashem and Cameron Nisbet, the visual follows MILES and his friends through a night out in LA.
Of the title track, MILES explained: “‘NEVER HAVE I EVER’ felt like the perfect song to record live drums on when we were finalizing the EP. I was so excited when word came back that Travis was going to hop on the track; having him play drums on my song is a huge honor. I can’t wait for everyone to hear this new project and am thankful for everyone involved in it.”
In support of the new EP, MILES will make his live debut across the U.S. and Canada opening for Peach Tree Rascals on the “Does A Fish Know It’s Wet Tour.” MILES will provide direct support for the first leg of dates, which launch on Wednesday, 10/21 in San Diego and stop in major cities such as Brooklyn, Boston, Nashville, and more before wrapping in Detroit on Tuesday, November 8.
Slowly, but surely, MILES developed a following online in 2020 before cooking up “WHAT IN TARNATION” back home in St. Louis. Beyond inspiring thousands of TikTok videos, it raked in millions of streams as he inked a deal with Elektra. He maintained his momentum with the captivating, high-energy follow up singles “DESPERADOS” and “MOSH PIT.”
He added: “I’m just a kid from St. Louis who had a crazy dream to go to the city of Angels and make music,” “When you listen to me, I hope you feel like you can live the fullest life you can. I’m waking up every day in a place I love and telling you about my life here.”
