Milk Teeth, the British punk-rock band, has announced that they’ve signed with Roadrunner Records. In addition to this, the band released a new EP, Be Nice ; an album that touches on the challenges of being on tour and losing your mind a bit. The album dropped on July 28, and is Milk Teeth's Roadrunner debut; the first installment of a two part EP series which will be concluded later this year.
The band got their name from a song by the Japanese Voyeurs, and the group never envisioned they would be working with a major label representing such bands as Slipknot, KORN, Stone Sour, Megadeth, Alter Bridge, Killswitch Engage, Opeth, Gojira, Theory of a Deadman, Motionless In White to name a few. Milk Teeth grew up listening to many of these bands and credit them with inspiring and influencing their ’90s grunge fused with punk-rock sound. Ready and able to represent and inspire the next generation of Roadrunner artists, Milk Teeth are stoked to call the label their home.
Be Nice, produced by Neil Kennedy(Creeper, Boston Manor), opens with the ‘power-pop meets grunge’ anthem “Owning Your Okayness." The captivating second track “Prism” is a melodic mix of attitude and aggression--be sure and check out the colorful new music video for "Prism." above. The energy continues with snarling vocals and frantic shouts in “Fight Skirt.” The EPs final track “Hibernate" shows the softer side of Milk Teeth. Full of vulnerability and emotional turmoil, this track is entirely different from anything else the band has written. The passion behind "Hibernate" is communicated entirely in the stripped-back acoustic music video.
Formed in Stroud, Gloucestershire, England in 2013, Milk Teeth consists of Becky Blomfield on lead vocals and bass; Billy Hutton on guitar/vocals; Chris Webb on guitar; and on drums, Oli Holbrook. The passionate group released two EPs, 2013s Smiling Politely and 2015s Sad Sack. These releases helped the band build a massive dose of notoriety. The four-piece exploded onto a new level with their 2016 debut full-length album Vile Child, affording them the opportunity to support bands like Refused, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, and Against Me! Milk Teeth's extended festival highlights include sets at Download, Reading, Leeds, SXSW, Pukkelpop and 2000 Trees.
