Milk Teeth are resurrecting a few of the band’s early songs for their latest jaunt around the country. Not familiar with the oldies? Drummer Oli Holbrook introduces a few of ‘em.
It’s probably one of one our first songs we ever wrote. I don’t even remember the last time we played it, but it’s definitely more of a moshy song.
It’s named after the bus route me and Becky used to take to college. The video is nonsense, but it’s a fun one to play live.
SWEAR JAR (ORIGINAL)
It’s exactly the same as the second version just worse recorded. But it’s a fan favourite, and we always get the best sing-alongs for it.
10/10 kids go hard to it. It’s really fun for us to play and lets us live our dream of being a nu metal band.
It has every element of the band as a whole, and has heavy and softer parts. Sounds better with Billy singing too.
I think that’s helped get our name out there the most and we get the crowd reaction from this song. I see ya’ll bouncing.
We ain’t ever playing this, it was just some B-side that our old singer wanted to do to impress shoegaze kids.
We get asked to play this a lot, and the video was a lot of fun, but I don’t think we are gonna bring it out this tour.
Errm, it’s our least popular song, but we’d thought we play it one last time because we love it even if other people don’t.
I did vocals on this which I won’t be doing live because I’m banned from a microphone. But this song always gets the sarcastic youth sway, and it’s dope.
Stage dives. Circle pits. Metal parts. A lot of fun.
I can’t remember how to play this yet so gotta relearn it. We used to end on it, and it was sick crowd reaction. Definitely one for the older fans.
