Detroit noise rock unit, CHILD BITE, is currently in the midst of a massive North American live takeover and the van just keeps on rolling. The band recently wrapped up a tour with Voivod alongside labelmates King Parrot and are currently crumbling stages from June 24th through June 30th, again with King Parrot. Two CHILD BITE-only dates will close the tour on July 1st and 2nd. From there, the band will head home to do laundry (maybe) before taking to the streets yet again with Michigan hardcore thrash punks S.N.A.F.U. from July 27th through July 31st. In August, CHILD BITE joins Lord Dying, Black Fast, and Joel Grind for a massive thirty-six date journey that runs through September 29th. You can’t stop the madness!

“Oh sweet Freddy Krueger in the sky,” comments vocalist Shawn Knight, “many dark thanks for blessing us with twenty-eight fucking Voivod shows. Coolest dudes ever and of course some of the raddest prog/punk/metal jams to ever come out of this universe, or galaxy even. Which of those two is bigger? I’ll look it up later. Any who, we can’t sit around sobbing in our oatmeal due to Voivod-withdrawal. Us and King Parrot still have a week or so to go, and then we do more, and then more. More is good, right? Sleep is overrated so we might as well cart our fleshy vessels around this continent a few more times this year.”

While you wait for CHILD BITE to pillage your city, let bassist Sean Clancy teach you how to play “Video Blood,” from the band’s recently-issued Negative Noise full-length, courtesy of Gear Gods at THIS LOCATION.

Negative Noise is out now on Housecore Records. The wild, forty-seven-minute ride was produced by label head Philip H. Anselmo, mastered by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer), and is where the Venn diagram of Black Flag, Voivod, and The Jesus Lizard truly overlaps. With twelve tracks of the bands distinct brand of chaotic, noisy apocalyptic sound Negative Noise represents all the weirdness that has made CHILD BITE so great over their hard years on the road.

New Noise Magazine calls CHILD BITE‘s Negative Noise, “…an adventurous slice of loud rock…They have the aggressive force of hardcore, but it’s filtered through grimy noise rock…Negative Noise showcases a band firing on all cylinders.” Brave Words observes, “The danger with this sort of artsy punk is that it can skirt a line between really interesting and creative and just really annoying and grating, really fast. Most bands who do this sort of thing end up being in the latter category, but CHILD BITE stay listenable, thanks to a ton of interesting and cool guitar work (check out ‘Video Blood’) and an ability to keep things toe-tapping and relatively rockin’, even if it’s rarely with a straight beat and is certainly never with an expected twist or turn,” adding, “References within the sphere of metal are hard to come by, but imagine if the first Mr. Bungle album wasn’t annoying circus music, and then remember that this band once did a 5″ record of Anal Cunt covers with Phil Anselmo on vocals, and you’re getting there.” Punk News concurs, “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. (Especially if you get a chance to see them live.) Negative Noise can be a hard record to love, but ultimately it’s worth the effort.” No Clean Singing notes, ” 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,” while KNAC hails, “…an all-over-the-place shitstorm of punk/hardcore, metal, noise/post rock, prog and even surf music in Brandon Sczomak’s shrill guitar jangle…it sounds sorta like someone stuffed Mr. Bungle/Fantomas, Voivod, old Clutch (especially in Shawn Knight’s husky baritone and seemingly extemporaneous delivery), Black Flag and The Jesus Lizard into a blender, pushed ‘grind’ and then forget to turn it off.”
