Detroit noise rock unit CHILD BITE are readying for part two of their US live assault supporting labelmates Superjoint. The tour will make its way west from San Antonio, Texas on April 21st and run through May 14th in Dallas, Texas. Additional support will be provided by fellow Motor City thrashers Battlecross. Prior to the journey, CHILD BITE will play the annual Berserker Fest this Saturday in Pontiac, Michigan. An event organized by CHILD BITE frontman Shawn Knight, the performance will find the eclectic collective sharing the stage with the likes of Gwar, Weedeater, The Obsessed, Brain Tentacles and many more. Just four days later CHILD BITE will perform a one off show in Evansville, Illinois before joining up with Uncle Phil and co for another round of roadbound shenanigans.
Comments Knight, "We haven't done a full west coast tour since last summer with Voivod, so of course we are excited to head that way next week with Superjoint and Battlecross. Lucky for Texas, Anselmo and co always have a collective boner for that state so we will be hitting them again on this trip. Where else... Colorado for three days! Many edibles will be consumed, so expect those shows to be extra psychedelic. The whole thing will be a real humdinger and a gosh darn hoot and a half, I promise you."

CHILD BITE continues to flaunt the infectious wares of their Negative Noise full-length, unleashed last year via Housecore Records. The wild, forty-seven-minute assault was produced by label head Philip H. Anselmo, mastered by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer), and is where the Venn diagram of Black Flag, Voivod, and The Jesus Lizard truly overlaps. Lauded Punk News, "This is for the open-minded punk, headbanger, or weirdo. If you like your music a little on the ugly side, you owe it to yourself to check them out." No Clean Singing concurred, "Negative Noise possesses a brilliance and individuality all its own and is a refreshing breath of fetid air in an era saturated with a d-beat-only approach to punk and hardcore." New Noise Magazine hailed the band's, "adventurous slice of loud rock...," furthering, "They have the aggressive force of hardcore, but it's filtered through grimy noise rock." Brave Words wrote, "References within the sphere of metal are hard to come by, but imagine if the first Mr. Bungle album wasn't annoying circus music, and then remember that this band once did a 5" record of Anal Cunt covers with Phil Anselmo on vocals, and you're getting there." Added Svbterranean," Those looking for something new, heavy and odd will have to look no further. Those looking for the perfect soundtrack to a sci-fi slasher B-movie will also have to look no further."

And if you missed it, feast your eyes on CHILD BITE's delightfully murine-centric visual companion to the track "Vermin Mentality," RIGHT HERE. After an incompetent scientist botches a series of tests on his lab rats, the creatures mutate and launch a vicious attack on humanity starting with CHILD BITE, who must defend themselves from the stronghold of their tour van against the monstrous pests. The clip was written and directed by Ryan Oliver of Deathblow Productions and includes appearances by Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Wayne Alon Scott (Tim And Eric's Bedtime Stories), Danny Belrose (Portlandia, Brooklyn 99), Sarah French (Killer Biker Chicks, Strip Club Slasher), and Elissa Dowling (Tales Of Halloween, We Are Still Here).
