Can you talk to us more about your latest single “This City Ain’t The Same”?
It was actually a bonus song for iTunes. It was going over so well live we decided to breathe some new life into it.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Atlanta is a very fast growing city. the amount of gentrification its experiencing is phenomenal… also a few years back when i wrote the song, the under ground music scene changed suddenly. With in a year the rock n roll a scene was gone and replaced with this 90’s esqe apathetic reverb drenched dumpster bunny noisey garagey slacker avant garde style of bullshit. it was herald as genius by the local music paper. For a period I really wanted to leave atlanta.
How was the film experience?
We shoot a lot of videos. I am involved in every process except for editing. Always a lot of hard work but its worth it. This is a performance video and it was great to just play.
How was the recording and writing process?
Like most songs I write on an acoustic in my little home studio and then take it in to our good friend and producer Dan Dixon to bring it to life.
How are you seeking to bring back rock and roll?
We have been doing everything we can, seems like straight forward rock n roll isn’t in that much of a demand in the main stream unless your a heritage act.
Does Atlanta plays a role in your music?
Not really… its just a place to hang my hat in-between tours.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Always writing and I have gang of new tunes. I’d love to get in the studio in the next few months.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Any plans to hit the road?
We have been on the roads for months and months. Our next string of dates are with D Generation. Really excited and I’m a big fan.
What else is happening next in BITERS’ world?
Just trying not to pull a micheal douglas in the movie falling down.
