Local metal heroes Child Bite embark on another national tour today

Posted By on Mon, Sep 14, 2015 at 1:05 PM

This won't do any of us much good, as all these dates are across the country. But it's heartening to see local good guys do so well. And Child Bite continues to kick ass and take numbers, as evidenced by their current touring success. We'll not be surprised when their next national tour finds them in a headlining slot.

Despite its problematic punctuation, here is the press release for the tour; tell your friends in other area codes to check them out!

Following their recent North American expedition supporting Superjoint and King Parrot on the successful It Takes Guts tour 2015, and the following Eastbound N' Down tour with Down, Detroit’s favorite punk/metal/noise rock eccentrics, CHILD BITE, take to the streets again for a twenty-three date tour supporting KEN mode. “We are honored to go on tour with Canada’s #1 metal-turned-noise rock outfit, KEN mode,” gushes CHILD BITE vocalist Shawn Knight. “Everyone asks if it’s a Barbie reference and I tell them, ‘No, it’s something from a book.’ These guys are intimidating as fuck and we are gonna take several notes while watching them destroy the stage every night. Their new record sounds amazing, no doubt due to the fact that it was recorded by the same guy that did Bush’s second album. We can’t wait to drive straight from Detroit to Seattle just to have them spit in our faces.”
