Child Bite Stream Covers Of Minor Threat & Unsane


Child Bite are back with another smattering of tracks from their approaching “Burnt Offerings: Covers And Rarities 2010 – 2017” collection. The latest songs to surface from the set include their original track “Throb Forever” as well as covers of Unsane‘s “Don’t” and Minor Threat‘s “Guilty Of Being White“/”It Follows“. Frontman Shawn Knight, commented:

“‘Throb‘ is probably our favorite. We played it every night on one of our tours back then, maybe the Voivod tour. It’s about a self-destructive person near the end of their life: bridges burned, alone, miserable, and full of regret. The final line of the song is a bit about how the insects eating your buried remains makes your body quiver in a way similar to withdrawals… I don’t know if anybody would read into it that deep though. It’s also a nod to one of my favorite Carcass lyrics; ‘Even in the afterlife, there’s work to do.'”

Housecore Records will release the set on May 11th.
