Ringworm and Child Bite have announced that they will be releasing a new split 7″ as part of Failure Records & Tapes‘ “Split Hits The Fan” series. Fans will be able to purchase it at this year’s Full Terror Assault Open Air festival.
Child Bite are planning to enter the studio in April to record their new album. The band will be working on the effort with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago, IL and a 2019 release is expected.
Shawn Knight commented:
“We’re furiously writing tons of song ideas, jamming with various drummer buds, trying to put our best foot forward on this Albini album. We’ve just been in tour mode for the past couple years, so we had to put the brakes on shows for the entire winter in order to focus on the task at hand. But, when we heard that our good friends Multicult and Microwaves were planning a tour, we decided to crash a portion of it and test out some of these as of now still unwritten, new songs.”

Child Bite have shared three more tracks from their “Burnt Offerings” rarities compilation, which is set to be released on May 11. They include covers of Unsane‘s “Don’t” and Minor Threat‘s “Guilty Of Being White“/”It Follows“ and a previously unreleased song called “Throb Forever“. Frontman Shawn Knight said the following about the original track:
“‘Throb‘ is probably our favorite. We played it every night on one of our tours back then, maybe the Voivod tour. It’s about a self-destructive person near the end of their life: bridges burned, alone, miserable, and full of regret. The final line of the song is a bit about how the insects eating your buried remains makes your body quiver in a way similar to withdrawals… I don’t know if anybody would read into it that deep though. It’s also a nod to one of my favorite Carcass lyrics; ‘Even in the afterlife, there’s work to do.’”
Child Bite have shared three tracks from their “Burnt Offerings” rarities compilation, which is set to be released on May 11. They include covers of Celtic Frost‘s “The Usurper” and Anal Cunt‘s “Chump Change” feat. Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down, etc.) and a previously unreleased song called “Stroke The Negative“.
Child Bite will be releasing a new 2-CD covers/rarities compilation on May 11, via Phil Anselmo‘s Housecore Records. It will come with 28 tracks recorded throughout the band’s career, including some covers featuring Anselmo.
Shawn Knight commented:
“Here we have all of our loose ends. 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. 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.”

Shawn Knight commented:
“The idea of a Child Bite / STNNNG split has been bouncing around since ‘07. 10 years later we finally made it happen. We were between Child Bite tours earlier this year, going over our options for local studios to bust out a couple tunes in, and remembered Wes Borland.
He moved to Detroit recently and has been coming out to shows. We reached out about doing these tunes with him and he was into it! The recording was quick, fun and Wes contributed some great ideas.”
Child Bite have premiered a new video for their song “Vermin Mentality.” This song is from the band’s latest album, “Negative Noise,” which is available now.
Shawn Knight said the following:
“We consider ourselves very lucky to have snagged Ryan Oliver for our latest music video. We were familiar with his short films Restoration and Air Condition since they had screened at the Housecore Horror Film Fest. He had seen our previous videos, including ‘Ancestral Ooze‘ [featuring King Buzzo from the Melvins], and was up for the task of dumping countless hours and buckets of elbow grease into this ambitious masterwork.
We gave him a heads up just one week before we were booked to play in Chicago, and in that time Ryan and his crew had created everything needed for the van sequence. This included a giant rat costume with functioning jaw and red glowing eyes as well as all of the weaponry needed to combat the rodent horde. The second shoot, which took place a couple months later out in Los Angeles, involved a fully-outfitted science lab and several rats, both real and artificial.
This location was selected since we had Bill Moseley (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2, The Devils Rejects etc.) officially on board to play our lead lab tech. During the months before and after the shoot, Ryan and his team were busy building a complete miniature set at his Chicago-based effects studio, The Rot Shop. Once that elaborate miniature set was ready, they proceeded with the third and final shoot; real rats in tiny Chicago. In the end, we couldn’t be more thrilled with how it all turned out and are anxious to see what Ryan does next!”
