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.’”
