Rabbits To Release New Album "Bites Rites"

After another session copulating into existence a new batch of scathing buzzsaw riffery, Portland’s Rabbits has completed some new noise. "Bites Rites" will invade the human population in the final days of Summer 2012, a release guaranteed to scurry more shit into your life than the loved/loathed 2011-released Relapse Records debut "Lower Forms." The following press release was issued about the band:

"Rabbits’ latest intoxicated orgy of adrenalized lagomorphic chaos will see release this September via a recent infestation of Good To Die Records. On Bites Rites this obligate nasal-breathing collective of rhythm morticians -- drummer KG and guitarists/vocalists Sethro and Booze -- ravenously gnaw through nine tracks, including demented covers of Spacemen 3's '2:35' and Husker Du's 'What's Going On.' Yes, a Butthole Surfers, Melvins, Unsane or Buzzov*en reference may scuttle forth during the sonic bombardment of Bites Rites, yet a thoroughbred uniqueness abounds within each segment. Bites Rites was recorded and mixed by Fester at Haywire Studios, Portland, (Wizard Rifle, Atriarch, Nux Vomica) and mastered by Ryan Foster at Foster Mastering, Portland (Agalloch, Muslimgauze, Fishbone), with cover art by Sacramento artist Skinner (author of Every Man Is My Enemy) and drawings and titles by Portland artist Kevin Abell (co-editor of Nudity in Groups). Bites Rites will be released on 180-gram LP with included digital download delivery via Good To Die Records on September 18th."
