BRIT PUNK crew Milk Teeth hit the road on their UK headlining tour in a couple of weeks, featuring their biggest headline shows to date. In preparation, they’ve been trekking around America as support to Enter Shikari.
“We’ve reached the six-week mark now,” singer/bassist Becky Blomfield tells Kerrang! from San Francisco. “We haven’t killed each other yet, so that’s a good sign. We bought balaclavas in Canada, though – it’s the coldest we’ve ever been! It’s been minus-30 sometimes.”
Becky says the band’s second tour of the U.S. – their first was with Citizen,turnover and Sorority Noise in 2016 – has, despite the inclement conditions has been a “blur” of fun.and food.
“I’m obsessed with American-style pancakes now,” she reveals.“we went to one place where they were an inch thick! That was great.
“Enter Shikari are all super-chill,” she continues.“i remember me and my sister used to listen to [Shikari’s 2007 debut] Take To The Skies all those years ago when Myspace was still a thing. It’s very odd that we’re now on tour with them. Rou [Reynolds, vocalist] completely loses himself onstage every night.they’re really inspiring to tour with.” All this is providing an excellent run-up to returning home for a victory lap of the UK, where they’ll be showing off what treats they’ve loaded their sleeves with. “There’ll be songs we haven’t played for two years, especially from [2013 debut EP] Smiling Politely which is really cool,” explains the vocalist. “We’ve been playing a couple of songs from [new EP] Go Away in America and can’t wait to play them all back home.” Their tour kicks off on March 13 at Bristol’s Exchange, with support from Irish trio Fangclub and Watford four-piece Nervus. “I always think its nice to handpick who you take on tour,” says Becky of the bill.“it’s very selfish as we get to watch them play every night. It’s going to be fun!”
