Detroit punk/metal unit CHILD BITE will take to the streets in the coming weeks on a month-long rash of live dates. The trek begins mid-February with a six-show run that includes an appearance on No Coast Fest in Arlington, Texas with Cherubs, Big'n, and others. In March, the band will play three warm up shows including a performance in Cincinnati, Ohio with Sheer Terror and Carnivore A.D. before joining Today Is The Day on a portion of their No Good To Anyone tour. CHILD BITE's journey will run through two dozen US cities from March 9th through April 5th. Additional support will be provided by The Obsessed and -16- on select shows. See all confirmed dates below.
CHILD BITE will be touring in support of their Blow Off The Omens full-length, released late last fall via Housecore Records. Captured by legendary engineer Steve Albini (Nirvana, Neurosis, The Jesus Lizard) and mixed by Grammy award-winning engineer Collin Dupuis (Tomahawk, Dr. John, Lana Del Rey), the nine-track offering is a leaner, meaner follow-up to the band's critically lauded 2016 full-length, Negative Noise. From the head bob-inducing, noise rock groove of "Vexed Life" to the Jello-Biafra-with-NoMeansNo-esque freight train that is "They All Look Away," Blow Off The Omens covers a lot of ground within its half-hour running time. Riffs indebted to both Piggy and Pig Champion root their way throughout the album like alt-metal/hardcore hogs on the hunt.
CHILD BITE's Blow Off The Omens is out now on CD, digital, and limited-edition vinyl formats.

"...if you wanna call CHILD BITE noise rock, you ain't wrong. But the most accurate term for this nine-song, thirty-minute installment of angular and skittish facebreaker is just fucking awesome." - Decibel
"...this new song, which closes the album and kinda sounds like Pere Ubu and The Jesus Lizard had a baby. It's as loud and noisy and weird as you'd hope for from CHILD BITE, and you can stream it in all its grimy glory..." - BrooklynVegan on Blow Off The Omens' title track
"...a punchy, pissed-off, and catchy collection of songs that were captured perfectly by esteemed engineer Steve Albini..." - New Noise Magazine
"Without a single weak track in the mix, Blow Off The Omens is CHILD BITE's most polished record to date, but not so polished that it doesn't retain their dirty, grimy sound." - Rock Shock Pop
"...the metamorphosis from simple noise anarchists to this bewildering behemoth of rawkin' riffs continues to arouse and astound." - Rock And Roll Fables
"...the band follows up 2016's Negative Noise with an album that retains the bands eccentric qualities, but packages it up in a sinewy, frenzied collection of songs that are among the most focused and deliberate of their career. ...Blow Off The Omens is CHILD BITE at their finest." - The Void Report
"...it's grimy, it's manic and like a hallucinogenic siren, you'll have the constant nagging feeling that you should be diving for the nearest concrete bunker." - Blessed Altar
"If you're a weirdo who likes strange, heavy, fucked up music, you should check out CHILD BITE and Blow Off The Omens!" - Punk News
"The music is heavy, weird, bombastic and is indebted to Voivod just as much as it is to Cosmic Psychos, MC5 and Dead Kennedys. They have Bad Brain roots and filter them through proggy metal and noise rock. - Hanging Hex
"...a brilliant album that captures this band's unique creative energy. There is no filler on this album. Each song provides insight and emotion wrapped in the frenetic musical method that only CHILD BITE can provide." - Loud Hailer
"...a stunning creation and without question one of, if not the punk album of the year." - Astral Noize UK
