Out today: BITERS - The Future Ain't What It Used to Be

"A rocking Atlanta quartet with retro-riff-based leanings... Biters have been described as 'stomping rock n' roll, sprinkled with stardust'..."
–Guitar World

"The good-natured feel 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."

"Tingeing the full throttle, glammy power pop of the '70s... with the sugary hard rock of the early '80s."
–High Times

"Influenced by the likes of Cheap Trick, David Bowie, Alice Cooper, and Slade."
–New Noise

"Retro rock to the max, these tunes will leave you both reminiscing and raging!"
–Pure Grain Audio

Biters' sophomore album The Future Ain't What It Used to Be is out today on Earache Records.

From Atlanta, Georgia, 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.

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).

Biters have toured with Ace Frehley, Social Distortion, D Generation, Blackberry Smoke, and many more. A headlining US tour kicks off tonight in Chicago.
