Tipped as one of Britain’s hottest rising rock bands, MILK TEETH signed with Roadrunner Records in July 2017. The band’s first release for the label comes with the Be Nice EP, the first of two interlinked EPs with the second, Go Away, to follow on November 17.
“Roadrunner is the home of the bands that we grew up listening to and who have influenced our own sound today,” says vocalist/bassist Becky Blomfield. “They work with the best and we are so stoked to be welcomed as part of the next breed of artists with the potential to inspire the next generation. Our teenage selves were kicking about in little towns not knowing where we would end up, and almost a decade later we can say Slipknot are our label mates. Not bad for a bunch of kids from Stroud.”
Produced by Neil Kennedy (Creeper, Boston Manor), Be Nice opens with the grunge meets power-pop slacker anthem ‘Owning Your Okayness’ which was picked as Daniel P Carter’s Rockest Record at Radio 1, while the second track ‘Prism’ which also was selected as Rockest Record at Radio 1, captures their punchy mix of attitude, melody and aggression.
Formed in Gloucestershire in 2013, MILK TEETH released the Smiling Politely and Sad Sack EPs before reaching a wider cult audience with their 2016 debut album Vile Child. Along the way, they’ve supported the likes of Refused, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, and Against Me!, while festival highlights have included sets at Download, Reading, Leeds, SXSW, Pukkelpop and 2000 Trees. MILK TEETH features Becky Blomfield (vocals/bass), Billy Hutton (guitar/vocals), Chris Webb (guitar) and Oli Holbrook (drums).
