It's a new year and a new start for Milk Teeth as our friend Josh has stepped down from the band. We wish him all the happiness in the world & the best of luck for the future. Our most wonderful friend Billy Hutton will be helping us out on all our upcoming shows & tours. We are so stoked to have Billy sharing a stage with us. This year is going to be the biggest and best yet. We have new music, videos, tours, festivals, yoyos and puppies all coming your way in 2016! Thank you for all your support & we'll be seeing you soon at a rock music concert in your town. Keep it frosty. Becky, Chris, Oli & Billy.

Lloyd Roberts, the former Neck Deep guitarist, has issued a statement regarding the allegations brought against him of sexual misconduct earlier this summer. Read the whole thing in the replies, and make of it what you will.
Now, following a thorough investigation by North Wales Police, I received confirmation yesterday that officers have found no case for me to answer and that their investigation is now closed.
We would, however, like to ask you all to help be part of the solution, to not take part in posting rumours and gossip on the Internet in the absence of clear facts. We also ask that you please refrain from attacking the people making these statements via social media - we do not want anyone to feel victimised in any way.
Neck Deep premiered their new song "Can't Kick Up The Roots" yesterday on BBC Radio. Hear it at this link, and skip to the 33 min 30 sec mark to hear the new song. It'll be officially released tomorrow.
You can check out my new interview with Enter Shikari vocalist Rou Reynolds here. The band's brand new album, The Mindsweep, is out now both in-stores and online.
It’s difficult, especially today because I feel like the education system, media, and the museums feel the need to make the sciences about “little explosions!” and “mixing this liquid with that liquid, woo!”. I think the most exciting thing for me is learning about stuff like cosmology, stuff that makes us feel really small and insignificant, that’s the most empowering thing.
Hopeless Records has signed a band called Dryjacket from New Jersey, which is a band you've probably never heard before, but we can fix that! A music video for their song "Jefferson's Shadow" is in the replies, and their EP Lights, Locks, & Faucets is available for pre-order here (comes out April 14). Recommended if you like You Blew It!, Into It. Over It., other bands with not-super-necessary punctuation in their names, plus a bit of Copeland's pop sensibility. Listen.
