Atlanta rock band Biters have announced a worldwide recording deal with Earache Records.
Recalling the early spirit and danger of rabble-rousing rock heroes, Biters have faithfully built upon their punk heritage and their love of 70’s rock to deliver music that ignites, incites and excites in equal measure.
An aura of recklessness and intimidation surrounds the Biters mythology. Yet amongst all of the raw riffage, teethmarks and broken glass, the band serve up instant hooks and shout-a-long choruses. This ear for melody has not been lost on others – the likes of Green Day have proclaimed Biters among their favourite new bands.
Earache’s Dan Tobin comments: “Biters have lit a fire under us here at Earache. Their brand of rock forces you to take part – it’s so immediate, accessible and exciting that the label had to get involved. Most of all, it’s completely believable – its makes you want to fight for this kind of music to be heard. There is a gang mentality with Biters that is very strong, and we are thrilled to join forces with them.”
‘Electric Blood’ is Biters debut album for Earache and is released on July 13. A single, ‘Restless Hearts’ has been released on SoundCloud.
