The Skinny: Atlanta rock ‘n’ roll tearaways 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 ’70s rock to deliver music that ignites, incites and excites in equal measure.

Possessing a heart full of rock ‘n’ roll, the band play foot stomping, fist pumping, spit-on-the-floor anthems possessed of a fighting spirit that refuses to give in. Band leader Tuk explains the band’s outlook: “Corporate pop culture and fairweather fads is just something I’m not interested in. I still choose to play rock ‘n’ roll, because I still believe in rock ‘n’ roll.”

Electric Blood is Biters’ debut album for Earache and is released on July 13. A single, “Restless Hearts,” will precede the album and can be heard above.
