In advance of its release today Decibel Magazine spews forth “Born A Hog” for communal absorption. “‘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.”

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. Indeed, 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 was produced by label head Philip H.Anselmo and features artwork by vocalist Shawn Knight.
In related CHILD BITE news, the band will take to the stage this weekend at the third annual Berserker Music Fest in Detroit. 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. Check out the Berserker sampler, which includes the track “Vermin Mentality” from CHILD BITE’s Negative Noise at THIS LOCATION.
The perpetually road-bound noise rock misfits will also lso playing shows next month opening for the mighty Voivod alongside labelmates King Parrot with additional onstage debauchery to be announced in the coming weeks. The latest run of dates follows the band’s recent tour supporting hardcore punk legends Poison Idea.
