"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."
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."
"Stomping rock n' roll, sprinkled with stardust" is how Biters have recently 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).
