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.”

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.’”

Child Bite To Release “Burnt Offerings” Compilation In May

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.”
