Superjoint Enters The Studio, New Album Due In 2016

Reactivated hardcore metallers Superjoint, formerly known as Superjoint Ritual, have entered the recording studio based on a series of photos posted to band photographer and friend Jody Dorignac’s Instagram account. The photos depict the band recording at Philip H. Anselmo’s home studio and Housecore Records headquarters, Nodferatu’s Lair. The new Superjoint album, the first in over twelve years, is due out some time next year.


In a series of interviews, Anselmo has discussed the return of Superjoint and making a new album:

Phil with Full Metal Jackie:

“It won’t sound any different, because myself, Jimmy and Kevin have always been the main writers in Superjoint anyway, so, really — for the most part, really, me and Jimmy. So it shouldn’t sound much different at all.”

Discussing the return of the band with the Phoenix New Times ahead of their tour opening date for Danzig’s “Blackest of the Black Tour” this past fall, Phil was asked why the bands shows were better than ever: In a recent interview with “So-briety! [Laughs] Simply put. Sobriety.”

“You know, originally we were plugging along with Superjoint, truth is, and I’m not a bit embarrassed or ashamed to admit it at all, I really don’t remember much about Superjoint from back then except for little pieces. I was fucked up out of my fucking mind on heavy drugs … and the overindulgence of booze. These days, don’t get me wrong, I like my suds and I like a bit of the white grape…. But I think every damn one of us has a much clearer mind. A much more stable support system within that realm. And we’re all veterans now, man. We’ve been through the lowest of times together, and this group of people — specifically, [guitarist] Jimmy Bower and [bassist] Kevin Bond — when it was time to say ‘fuck this road to destruction,’ we all kind of did that together. We all came off of heavy drugs at the same time. So I think there’s this strength with knowledge there about what not to do. So really it just happened from our clear minds and fresh blood there. It’s a positive thing. It feels like it’s fun again, and isn’t that the point? If you’re going to make music and you’re having fun while you’re doing it, nothing in this world cane deter from that.”

“I would just say, as far as energy goes, we know from being in the scene for 20, 30 years that we don’t have to get up there and jump around and dance around for the kids anymore. All we need to do is throw our amps and drums up on stage… And play the music as tight as possible with no bullshit, man. Just lay it on them. And during this [fall], we’re also going to be doing a multitude of shows with the mighty Glenn Danzig, who I’ve been friends with, for, geez, 25 years. He’s always been a complete gentleman and supporter of myself and what I do. You look at a set like that … our game plan is to rip it song after song after song, with nary a break. And we will always have interaction with the audience because I love that part as well. But it comes down to leading people with a positive impression and playing as many songs as possible.”

Child Bite Updates From The Studio, June Tour Dates With Coliseum

child bite 2

Detroit punk metallers Child Bite has posted an update from recording their forthcoming new full length at Philip H Anselmo’s Nodferatu’s Lair, due out later this year via Housecore Records. Reports vocalist Shawn Knight from the Lair:

“We’ve been having a blast in the studio with Philip Anselmo! Historically, Child Bite has tracked full-length LPs in two to four days, so it has been both strange and relieving to spend two full weeks at Nodferatu’s Lair. The thirteen songs we tracked sound incredible, ten of which will make up the album while the other three will be released independently. In our spare time, we also shot a music video for ‘Mongoloid Obsession’ off of the Strange Waste EP. Written and directed by the band, it’s a lo-if slab of Ed Wood-meets-John Waters bafoonery. Look for that sucker any day now!”

The band will be supporting Coliseum on an upcoming run of tour dates.

Jun 05: The New Vintage – Louisville, KY

Child Bite Recording New Record with Philip Anselmo

child bite

Detroit punk/metal/noise rock misfits Child Bite have been holed up in their den of iniquity penning new tunes for their as-yet-untitled new full-length, to be recorded by Philip H. Anselmo at his famed Nodferatu’s Lair. The record serves as the follow-up to last year’s Strange Waste EP, released via Housecore Records.

Comments Child Bite in a collective statement,

“Us ‘BITE boys have been holed up all winter, writing tons of stuff for the next record. We’ve been talking to Phil about recording with him for quite a while; we really just did Strange Waste last year as a way to keep busy while waiting for his busy schedule to clear up. We write in waves, with most songs requiring either four or five distinct passes before they are complete. Most of the songs are entering the third and fourth passes, with lyrics just getting started on. We sent Phil a bunch of really rough demos last week to share our progress and his response was; ‘insanely great ideas!’ Juice levels are reaching new heights in the CB camp.”

In related Child Bite intel, the band will appear on an upcoming, limited edition Celtic Frost tribute record. Set for release via Corpse Flower Records this Spring as a supplement to the Morbid Tales! An Illustrated Tribute To Celtic Frost, a mega 155-page comic with illustrations and illustrated anecdotes from a varied bunch of metal musicians/authors, edited by renowned illustrator Mark Rudolph, Child Bite opens the collection with their rendition of “The Usurper” with Anselmo on lead vocals. “If you saw us at our release show or on tour last Fall,” the band notes, “you may have heard us play it with [vocalist] Shawn [Knight] doing his best Anselmo-meets-Tom G impression.” The comp will also include Acid Witch, Municipal Waste, members of Neurosis and Repulsion and more!
