Acid Teeth is a punk rock quartet from Seattle, Washington formed from the ashes of Northwest punk veterans; Go Like Hell, RC5, and The Triple Sixes. Debuting in August 2015 at Seattle's Chop Suey, Acid Teeth shot out of the gate like a canyon with a relentless schedule of constantly playing on the road promoting the new project.

They quickly hit the studio with engineer Brian Steel at Seven Hills Studios in Seattle WA and recorded a 4 song EP including a cover of Black Flags "My War". Once mastered by Andy Brodigan they took to the road for their first U.S in the winter of 2016. A second tour followed up in Fall 2016 which covered Idaho, Utah, Nevada, California, Oregon and Washington.

Once back from the road they contacted Brian Nelson at Electric Wall Studios in Seattle WA to start production on the next release.

They signed on with Snatchee Records out of Wenatchee Washington to release a 7" 2 song single which led to the third U.S spring tour which covered Idaho, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington.

Fall 2017 back on the road still supporting the new release they played 14 shows through the state of California including headlining The Viper Room in West Hollywood.

December 2017 they met up with producer Jeffery M. McNulty at Kill Room Studios in Seattle WA and recorded 3 new tracks for their sophomore release on Snatchee Records.

Spring 2018 back on the road constantly pushing and promoting they clocked in over 4,000 + miles across the states. Upon return they excepted an invitation to play Milwaukee Punk Fest in Wisconsin which led to their 6th U.S tour beginning August which covered Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin.

Winter 2018 the band headed back into the studio in Tacoma WA to record a cover song from the band The Wildhearts which will be featured on a split 7" and released in 2019.

Spring 2019 will be the bands 7th U.S tour to date.
