Killing Dreams” Premiered on PureGrainAudio

Vain Wisdon due out April 15, 2016, Pre-Order NOW


March 28, 2016Frederick, MD – Alternative Rock/Hip-Hop Quintet Milton J and The Leftovers have released the debut video for “Killing Dreams” off of their upcoming Vain Wisdom album. Premiered on PureGrainAudio, “Killing Dreams” combines the compositional depth of a fully rounded instrumental orchastration with sharp, provocatively subversive lyrics.


The track was an opportunity for me to express the frustration and struggle that I’ve been experiencing for the past few years. This industry is like modern day politics, so dependent on its formulaic copies of artists that have come and gone. The point of this song was to address the questions as to why business and politics have taken the ability to have a voice in our society. Its was also there to demonstrate the range of abilities our band has.Milton J

About Milton J and The Leftovers

Hailing from Frederick, Maryland, Milton J and The Leftovers have created a buzz in the Mid Atlantic. Rocking the stage from NY to NC the crew has had the opportunity to share the stage with a range of major artists including Redman,Rehab, Nappy Roots, Mayday, Ces Cru, Almost Kings, and Super Bob. Their dedication to the music is evident as they are currently finalists for best Rap/RnB act in the Maryland Music Awards, #1 on the ReverbNation charts in their city, and have an unmistakable face in the DMV music scene.

The crew’s sound is a mixture of Alternative Rock and Hip-hop developed into it’s own consciousness. MCs such as Mike Shinoda, Slug, Immortal Technique,Nas, and Eminem, along with bands like Deftones, Incubus, Sublime, Linkin Park, and Red Hot Chili Peppers are just a few of their many musical influences.

Milton J and The Leftovers have been making their mark on the industry since 2009. Starting out as a solo artist, Milton J formed the Leftovers with drummerGarret Hall, guitarist Kristina Hong, bassist Edward Hong, and DJ Silverio Montano along the way. The group name came from an inside joke Milton J had for a b-side album called “Leftovers”, because kitchen leftovers are the best just as the leftover tracks of an artist that make a b-side record. Members of the group liked the idea so much they adopted the name for the band.

The name has evolved from a simple inside joke to a movement made strong by their supporters. Their influence has spread past the DMV as they look to take over the industry.
