Child Bite Releasing New Album “Negative Noise”

Detroit’s favorite musical misfits Child Bite will unveil brand new full-length, “Negative Noise,” this April 1st. Having released three full-lengths, as well as a gaggle of EPs and singles since the group’s formation in late 2005, the prolific collective is now well into the second phase of bandhood.

What began as a thoughtful-yet-spazzy art rock band in a Detroit suburb has now fully mutated into an aggressive, dissonant blend of all things punk, hardcore, sludge, surf, prog rock, noise rock and metal; a truly unique voice in a sea of copycats.

“Negative Noise” is forty-seven-minute throbbing ball of energy filled with furious jabs and paranoia-fueled explosions. Produced by Philip H. Anselmo and featuring artwork by vocalist Shawn Knight, “Negative Noise” is a fully-realized vision, inside and out. The album’s track listing is as follows:

1. Death Before Dementia
2. Paralytic Phantasm
3. Euphoria Saturation Point
4. Born A Hog
5. Video Blood
6. Apex Of Anxiety
7. Vermin Mentality
8. Beyond The Dirt
9. The Great Ego Flood
10. Into The Disease
11. Feed Me Septic Dreams
12. Heretic Generation

Child Bite Announces New North American Tour Dates

After a short holiday slumber, Detroit’s favorite road hounds from Child Bite will take to the streets again for another round of onstage pandemonium.

The live chaos will commence February 11th in Saginaw, Michigan and trample through eleven cities, with the trek coming to a close on February 21st again in the band’s home state in Grand Rapids. Child Bite will be joined by Against The Grain for the first three dates before uniting with Poison Idea for the remaining dates.

Comments frontman Shawn Knight: “Us Child Bite assholes have been chomping at the bit to hit the road again. Feels weird to sit still for more than a week or so. We are tickled pink to finally be doing a few out of state shows with our Detroit bros Against The Grain! Both of our bands have been hitting it hard for a while now; I’m glad we can combine forces. We met Poison Idea when we both played Berserker Fest last year, so when they asked us to do some East Coast and Canadian dates with them we responded with a resounding, ‘duh!.’ These are our first shows of the New Year and we are ready to blast off with a big kaboom!”

Beneath Oblivion Gears Up For U.S. Tour Dates
