"That good-natured feel of some of rock's best decades... Biters are cut from the same cloth as iconic acts like Cheap Trick, with a tad of the glitter rock sound made famous by the New York Dolls and T. Rex." - Loudwire

Atlanta rock n' rollers BITERS have teamed with Loudwire to present the exclusive premiere of new single "Let It Roll".

This rockin' call-to-arms is the opening track off the band's sophomore album The Future Ain't What It Used To Be, to be released worldwide via Earache Records on May 19th.

BITERS frontman Tuk Smith says of the song, "It's got that 'take on the world' spirit to it and it gets me pumped every time I hear it."

Listen here: http://loudwire.com/biters-let-it-roll-exclusive-song-premiere

"Stomping rock n' roll, sprinkled with stardust" is how BITERS have been described - the Atlanta-based quartet makes swaggering, stadium-ready anthems in the spirit of the glam, power pop, and hard rock gods of the '70s, from T. REX to CHEAP TRICK to AC/DC.  Indeed, new album The Future Ain't What It Used To Be is packed with some of the catchiest songs of the year - but the magic lies in the attitude behind the hooks.  BITERS' strut and style transports us to a time when bands looked like bands and acted like gangs.

A feature in High Times likened BITERS' mix of streetwise snarl and pop perfection to "a rainbow in a thunderstorm."

The Future Ain't What It Used To Be was recorded by Dan Dixon (WYLDLIFE, WHORES), mixed by Dixon and Scott Stevens (HALESTORM, SHINEDOWN), and mastered by Stephen Marcussen (JOHNNY CASH, THE ROLLING STONES, TOM PETTY).

Atlanta's rock 'n' roll quartet BITERS have released a new track called "Chasin' the Feeling", which appears on the band's upcoming new album, 'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be'.

BITERS have just wrapped up a European tour supporting label mates and fellow Atlanta natives BLACKBERRY SMOKE and are celebrating the successful trek by treating fans to a brand new song.  "Chasin' the Feeling" follows the lead single "Stone Cold Love" as the second track to be released from 'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be', which will be available worldwide on May 19th through Earache Records.

Listen to "Chasin' the Feeling" now at http://youtu.be/sbsoBMQ7GK8

BITERS frontman Tuk recently said of the new album: "I knew I wanted to do something totally different to 'Electric Blood'.  It's very easy to get sidetracked as an artist and especially easy to lose perspective with so many people giving you advice and critique.  For this album, I wanted to go back to the reason I started this band back in 2010 - my love for early '70s glam rock, power pop and those big, anthemic sing-alongs are where my heart feels most home.  I wanted to take risks and really wear my heart on my sleeve this time around."

Punk rock trio WAKRAT (pronounced wôk•rat) have dropped a provocative new video for their track "Sober Addiction" in which Tim Commerford courageously confronts American authority head on.

The video, shot in multiple locations across the USA, shows the notorious activist and RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE bassist fearlessly mocking the perceived evils of America face to face... all whilst dressed in a middle finger costume.  Religious establishments, pharmaceutical corporations, the military, law enforcement, Trump supporters and major banks all get the finger from Commerford - often provoking outrage and angry responses.  This video is not for the easily offended.

Watch the "Sober Addiction" video now at http://youtu.be/gZ2lXalseSc

No strangers to controversy, WAKRAT have grown notorious for standing up for what they believe in.  Last July they staged one of the most daring political stunts in punk history as they claimed Parliament Square in London as their own sovereign state - the Republic of Wakrat.  This new protest state, as explained on the official website <http://www.republicofwakrat.com>:

"This new state welcomes everyone of all ethnicities, backgrounds, genders, generations, sexualities, dis/abilities and faiths and offers a fresh alternative to the current system - we stand for equality and free movement.  The current system is oppressive and elitist, promoting racist ideologies in order to push a self-serving agenda whilst an entire generation is put in jeopardy.  We condemn this behaviour and Republic of Wakrat exists to expose it."

WAKRAT's self-titled debut album was released on Election Day last November on Earache Records and is available on signed CD and vinyl from http://www.earache.com/wakrat

The album is also available on iTunes at http://bit.ly/wakrat-itunes

Nashville-based artist DANNY WORSNOP has released a brand new music video for the song "High", taken from his debut solo album 'The Long Road Home'.

Filmed in Greensburg, Kentucky with director Blake Judd, the emotionally-charged video sees Danny risking his life as he pours his heart out inside an actual burning house - the blazing building providing a haunting backdrop to a tale of heartbreaking loss as everything crumbles around him.

Viewers may be shocked to learn that there was no CGI used in the video - all footage is 100% real and shows just how far Danny is willing to go to express himself, breaking every health and safety rule for his art.

Watch the video for "High" now at http://youtu.be/oJ6KbYwIf2M

Filmed over two cold days in January, the whole process was captured on film and released in a two-part documentary, giving fans a closer look at the dangers involved with setting fire to a building with the artist and crew inside.  Watch the incredible behind-the-scenes footage now:

NAPALM DEATH's classic debut 'Scum', along with CARCASS' legendary album 'Heartwork', have been reissued on Full Dynamic Range vinyl and are available once again.

Earache Records revolutionised the way music fans can enjoy their favourite metal albums several years ago with the launch of the Full Dynamic Range (FDR) format.  A counteraction to the "Loudness Wars", Full Dynamic Range vinyl ensures that fans hear the music as it was intended to sound - pure and organic audio pressed straight to 180-gram vinyl from the original studio analogue or DAT tapes.

After the original FDR pressings of NAPALM DEATH's 'Scum' and CARCASS' 'Heartwork' quickly sold out, fans have since been clamouring for another pressing, and are now able to get their hands on these metal classics once more.

Originally released in 1987, NAPALM DEATH's 'Scum' would go on to spawn an entire genre, influencing others for decades to come.  To this day, the album is still widely hailed as the most important grindcore album ever made, and regularly features in charts listing the best metal albums of all time.  See a video of the new 'Scum' FDR vinyl in action at https://youtu.be/U4pPgde4T94

Get 'Scum' now on Full Dynamic Range vinyl at http://webstore.earache.com/napalm-death

'Heartwork', the classic 1993 album from CARCASS, was the band's biggest selling album and their first to land in the top 50 of the UK charts.  Described as the band's breakthrough, it's still widely hailed as one of the best death metal albums of all time.  Check out a video of the new 'Heartwork' FDR vinyl in action at https://youtu.be/x3uYypFYZyk

Get 'Heartwork' now on Full Dynamic Range vinyl at http://webstore.earache.com/carcass

The next title due for an FDR repress is BOLT THROWER's 'Realm of Chaos', which is due to be released on March 31st.  Pre-order the vinyl now at http://webstore.earache.com/bolt-thrower
