Milk Teeth lose guitarist Josh

Milk Teeth guitarist Josh Bannister has left the band and been replaced by Billy Hutton.

The split is said to be amicable, with the band wishing Bannister well and vice versa. Hutton – known for his work with Hindsights – will be in place for Milk Teeth’s upcoming European tour, although it’s not yet clear whether he’ll become a full-time member.

Milk Teeth say: “We wish Josh all the happiness in the world and the best of luck for the future. Our most wonderful friend Billy Hutton will be helping us out on all our upcoming shows and 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.”

In December, Milk Teeth released a video for their track Kabuki. Their debut album Vile Child is set for release on January 29 via Hopeless Records.
