Child Bite, as you might know, are signed to Housecore Records and are currently working on their new album, the follow-up to 2014’s Strange Waste EP. The as yet untitled album is to be recorded at Nodferatu’s Lair and to be produced by Philip H. Anselmo (you know him, right?), who’s been kept up to date on the band’s progress.
Child Bite stated:
Us ‘Bite boys have been holed up all winter, writing tons of stuff for the next record. We’ve been talking to Phil about recording with him for quite a while; we really just did Strange Waste last year as a way to keep busy while waiting for his busy schedule to clear up. We write in waves, with most songs requiring either four or five distinct passes before they are complete. Most of the songs are entering the third and fourth passes, with lyrics just getting started on. We sent Phil a bunch of really rough demos last week to share our progress and his response was; ‘insanely great ideas!’ Juice levels are reaching new heights in the CB camp.
In related Child Bite news, the band will appear on an upcoming, limited-edition Celtic Frost tribute record. Set for release via Corpse Flower Records this spring as a supplement to the Morbid Tales! An Illustrated Tribute To Celtic Frost, a mega 155-page comic with illustrations and illustrated anecdotes from a varied bunch of metal musicians/authors, edited by renowned illustrator Mark Rudolph. Child Bite opens the collection with their rendition of “The Usurper,” with Anselmo on lead vocals. “If you saw us at our release show or on tour last fall,” the band notes, “you may have heard us play it with [vocalist] Shawn [Knight] doing his best Anselmo-meets-Tom G impression.” The comp will also include Acid Witch, Municipal Waste, members of Neurosis and Repulsion, and more!
