Child Bite released their Negative Noise full-length last year via Housecore Records. The wild, forty-seven-minute assault was produced by Philip H. Anselmo (Down, Pantera, Scour, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Arson Anthem etc.), mastered by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer), and is where the Venn diagram of Black Flag, Voivod, and The Jesus Lizard truly overlaps. The record won the #33 of Decible’s Top 40 Albums Of 2016. Hailed Punk News, “This is for the open-minded punk, headbanger, or weirdo. If you like your music a little on the ugly side, you owe it to yourself to check them out.” Added No Clean Singing, “Negative Noise possesses a brilliance and individuality all its own and is a refreshing breath of fetid air in an era saturated with a d-beat-only approach to punk and hardcore.”

Child Bite Streams New Track “Video Blood”

In just two weeks, “Negative Noise,” the impending new full-length from Detroit act Child Bite, will see official unveiling via Housecore Records. As a precursor to its release, today fifth movement “Video Blood” comes online and can be heard below.

Issues vocalist Shawn Knight of the track: “‘Video Blood’ is a bit different from the rest of the batch. We wanted to counter the more complicated tunes on Negative Noise by having some simpler ones. Everything from the bass lines to the repetitive lyrics to the overall structure are paired down from what we tend to do.

“Lyrically, it’s about violence in entertainment. It’s the antithesis of thinking that these types of films and games are bad for kids; my stance in the song is that it’s good to be exposed and desensitized to that stuff. It has as much to do with the PMRC/Parental Advisory stickers as it does Columbine as it does that scene in A Clockwork Orange where Malcolm McDowell has his eyes forced open. Obviously, my references are of immediate relevance. All kidding aside, it can be summed up by this line from the song; ‘Artificial violence satisfies the dark urges within.'”

Child Bite Streaming New Track “Born A Hog”

Child Bite’s “Negative Noise” full-length will see release next month via Housecore Records, and today new track “Born A Hog” is spewed forth.

“‘Born A Hog” is about how much it would suck to be born a hog,” considers vocalist Shawn Knight. “I eat my fair share of bacon, but I can’t help keeping in mind where it comes from. Interesting how we choose certain animals to eat and others to pamper. I’ve got two pet dogs, but I also eat bacon. Kinda fucked up when you think about it. Thinking too much about anything can ruin the experience, but I believe that the least I can do for that pig is to make myself feel a little guilty while I’m eating him. We were stoked to get a real pig on the track too; you can hear sweet Lucy squealing at the very end of the song.”

The perpetually road-bound noise rock misfits will also play shows next month opening for the mighty Voivod alongside labelmates King Parrot with additional onstage debauchery to be announced in the coming weeks.

5/26/2016 Marquis Theatre – Denverm CO
5/28/2016 Vinyl (Hard Rock Cafe) – Las Vegas, NV

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
