BITERS UNVEIL OFFICIAL "STONE COLD LOVE" MUSIC VIDEO

Atlanta's rock n' roll punks BITERS, whose new studio album, 'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be' was released Friday, have unveiled a brand new video for lead single, "Stone Cold Love".  Watch the clip, directed by longtime collaborator Video Rahim, here - http://youtu.be/slBjGh00Yec

BITERS recently returned home after blazing a trail across the UK and Europe with their electrifying live shows.  Their 24-date tour supporting labelmates BLACKBERRY SMOKE saw them playing to over 50,000 music fans, including a date at London's iconic Roundhouse.

BITERS frontman Tuk tells us about how "Stone Cold Love" came to be; "I sat down with my buddy Scott (Stevens) to write a tune.  We sat for hours trying to come up with something that felt perfect, but were hitting a dead end.  We said 'fuck it' and went to his local hang out, ate some cornbread, drank a few beers and talked about music.  We spoke about T. Rex, Queen and Slade, shit like that, how cool those big drum grooves were.  Right then a light bulb went off and we headed back to the studio with a fresh start and within hours finished writing the song, demoed it and tracked lead vocals!  I was so fucking delirious I couldn't tell if it was good or not.  A few weeks later, Scott sent me the finished demo while I was on tour in Kansas.  I remember cranking it in the van outside of this fake old wild west town and thinking, 'Goddamn, this is so good!'"

'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be' was produced by Dan Dixon and is the follow-up to 2015's critically acclaimed 'Electric Blood'.  You can grab the album digitally at iTunes - http://bit.ly/bitersfuture-itunes or pick up signed copies, bundles and lovely vinyl from http://www.earache.com/biters

BITERS: NEW ALBUM 'THE FUTURE AIN'T WHAT IT USED TO BE' OUT NOW WORLDWIDE

'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be', the brand new studio album from Atlanta rock 'n' rollers BITERS, is out now worldwide on CD, vinyl and digital platforms.

Described as "stomping rock n' roll, sprinkled with stardust", BITERS make 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.  '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.

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."

Get 'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be' now on vinyl and limited edition signed CD at http://www.earache.com/biters

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

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

GLASTONBURY UNVEILS NEW EARACHE STAGE FOR METAL/ROCK/PUNK

The new venue, which is making its debut at the Glastonbury 2017 festival, is housed in a recycled London Underground tube carriage located at Shangri La in the South East corner and is curated by the legendary British independent label Earache Records.

Earache Records, celebrating 30 years of pioneering metal/punk this summer, created the extreme metal scene launching bands such as NAPALM DEATH, CARCASS, GODFLESH, BRING ME THE HORIZON (USA), CLUTCH, SLEEP and THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN.

Initial bands confirmed for what promises to be the noisiest stage in Glastonbury history include one-time KLF collaborators EXTREME NOISE TERROR, Singapore's grindcore trio WORMROT and former frontman for punk revolutionaries CRASS, Steve Ignorant.  Many more acts to be announced.

Earache founder Digby Pearson said: "Glastonbury is known for its incredibly diverse line-up - we're glad to offer not just metalheads and punks, but everyone, a bangin' venue to come hang, headbang and party hard with some incredible bands."

The Earache Stage will be running from 9pm-6am, Wednesday 21st June to Sunday 25th June and promises a festival experience like no other.

In addition to the Earache Stage, Glastonbury has confirmed that seminal grindcore band NAPALM DEATH will be opening the Truth Stage in Shangri La on the Thursday night, 22nd June.

NAPALM DEATH's Shane Embury said: "I haven't been to Glastonbury since 1989!  A wild weekend I recall where I was a babysitter for a Japanese punk band all on acid!  All I can say is myself and the rest of the Napalm Death boys are very happy to finally play this prestigious event; let's hope it's a fucking mad one!"

BITERS TEAM UP WITH LOUDWIRE FOR "LET IT ROLL" TRACK PREMIERE

"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).

Pre-order here:
CD & vinyl - http://www.earache.com/biters
