Child Bite To Record New Album With Steve Albini

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.”

Tour Dates:

03/15 Detroit, MI – Sanctuary
03/16 Milwaukee, WI – X-Ray Arcade
03/17 Chicago, IL – Livewire Lounge

Listen To Child Bite Cover Minor Threat & Unsane

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.’”
