Child Bite have issued the first taste of their forthcoming studio effort Negative Noise, take in “Born A Hog” above. Comments vocalist Shawn Knight

‘Born A Hog’ is about how much it would suck to be born a hog. I eat my fair share of bacon, but I can’t help keeping in mind where it comes from. Interesting how we choose certain animals to eat and others to pamper. I’ve got two pet dogs, but I also eat bacon. Kinda fucked up when you think about it. Thinking too much about anything can ruin the experience, but I believe that the least I can do for that pig is to make myself feel a little guilty while I’m eating him. We were stoked to get a real pig on the track too; you can hear sweet Lucy squealing at the very end of the song.”

The new record is set to hit stores April 1st on Housecore Records; more details and pre-orders coming soon.
