Detroit noise rock collective CHILD BITE will release Burnt Offerings this spring via Housecore Records. A 2-CD set, Burnt Offerings is a compilation of CHILD BITE rarities culled from the last eight years of audio bedlam. The record boasts a menacing twenty-eight tracks including several unreleased tunes as well as cover songs featuring Philip Anselmo.
"Here we have all of our loose ends," elaborates frontman Shawn Knight. "Lots of great stuff that's either out-of-print or never came out for one reason or another. This serves as a mass grave for all of our musical orphans..."
"This whole project came to mind when both our guitarist and drummer left the band last summer," he continues. "We had put out so many random bits and pieces over the years, not to mention a full album's worth of unreleased songs, that it really felt like a good time to take stock and officially wrap up that chapter of the band. The first six tracks [from disc 1] are from vinyl-only split EPs we've put out. We've found that our strongest writing comes in small batches. These songs were written and recorded as pairs, and are some of our best tunes, not to mention some of the best sounding recordings we've ever had. Tracks seven through ten were meant for what became Negative Noise, but soon after we recorded these demos we got a new drummer and we started moving in a different direction. These quick studio recordings have been collecting dust now for nearly five years... Tracks eleven through thirteen were recorded down at Anselmo's place on our way south for a big tour with VOIVOD and KING PARROT. A couple members felt that the songs weren't ready for prime time so we held off from using them until now. I wouldn't be surprised if we revisited one or two of these in the future."
CHILD BITE's Burnt Offerings will be available on Housecore Records May 11th as a 2-CD digipak with a fold-out poster. Preorders will be announced in the coming weeks.
