Tour Dates With AGAINST THE GRAIN, POISON IDEA Underway

Detroit's favorite musical misfits, CHILD BITE, will unveil their brand new full-length, Negative Noise, this Spring. Having released three full-lengths, as well as a gaggle of EPs and singles since their formation in late 2005, the prolific collective is now well into their 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. CHILD BITE have succeeded in creating a singular expression, therefore carving out their own place in the current musical landscape. They are perfectly comfortable not fitting in... and are beginning to realize that they never had a choice. Negative Noise is where the Venn diagram of BLACK FLAG, VOIVOD and THE JESUS LIZARD truly overlaps.
Negative Noise Track Listing:
"Death Before Dementia"
"Euphoria Saturation Point"
"Born A Hog"
"Apex Of Anxiety"
"Beyond The Dirt"
"The Great Ego Flood"
"Into The Disease"
"Feed Me Septic Dreams"
In related CHILD BITE news, the band will take to the streets again for another round of onstage pandemonium. The live chaos commenced last night, February 11th in Saginaw, Michigan and will trample through eleven cities, the trek coming to a close on February 21st again in their home state in Grand Rapids. The band will be joined by AGAINST THE GRAIN for the first three dates before uniting with hardcore punk legends, POISON IDEA, for the remaining run. Additionally, CHILD BITE will appear at the third annual Berserker Music Fest in Detroit this March. Founded and organized by Knight and his wife Veronica, Berserker III boasts its most devouring lineups to date with the all-ages three-night/three-stage gala featuring appearances by internationally touring acts like VOIVOD, GHOUL, CONAN, MACABRE, CANNABIS CORPSE and BLACK TUSK as well as a spattering of new and established Michigan-based artists like ACID WITCH, PERVERSION and SHIT LIFE.
