Child Bite & Black Tusk Join Forces For Cover Of Prong’s “Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck”

Child Bite and Black Tusk have joined forces for a collaborative cover of Prong‘s “Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck.” You can find a video for that track below:

Child Bite’s Shawn Knight commented:

“I can’t speak for Black Tusk but us Child Bite guys have been laying low for the past several months, focusing on other aspects of our lives as opposed to forcing band productivity when we honestly just weren’t feeling it, or even worse, cluttering up the social landscape when the world has had much more pressing matters to focus on than demented rock music…

Not that shit isn’t still flinging off of the proverbial fan here in the US, but when the ‘Tusk fellas hit us up about a lighthearted, low-stakes, long-distance collab, it sounded like just the right project to help us dip our toes back into being a band. And it was! Hopefully our take on this undeniable ’90s banger brings a smile to a few faces today.”

Black Tusk Premiere New Song “Gallows Hill”

Black Tusk have premiered a new song titled “Gallows Hill.“ This track will appear on the “Savannah True Crime Compilation,“ which is expected to be released in November.

Andrew Fidler commented:

“In Colonial America in from 1692-1693, our country underwent an actual witch hunt that has repeated itself, in various forms, over and over again up to the present day. ‘Gallows Hill‘ is inspired by the history of the Salem Witch trials, in which innocents were persecuted by those who were afraid of anything different.

When we were asked by Graveface to contribute a song to a comp dealing we the subject matter of cults and serial killers and fear of the unknown, we felt it fitting to write about an event that truly cemented the rule of mass hysteria into our cultural and political systems while highlighting a segment of our societies penchant for persecuting a set of ideals or belief system or even just the way a person identifies themselves or how they choose to live outside a set of norms established by religion.

Inspirations for the song aside, this is also the first song we’ve written with longtime collaborator and new guitar player Chris “Scary” Adams. He recorded TCBT for us and did this song as well. We’ve just built a new studio, so be on the lookout for more from us very soon! But in the meantime, we hope you enjoy ‘Gallows Hill‘ and a huge thank you to Ryan from Graveface for making this a possibility.”

Proceeds from the compilation will go towards the Graveface Museum. An Indiegogo campaign has been launched for the museum as well.
