Newly signed to Earache Records – Hollywood party rock-n-rollers The Bites.
Primed to drop jaws with their monster hybrid of breathtaking garage rock rhythms, gargantuan choruses, unashamedly retro style and, above all, their dedication to making every live show an undeniable excuse to party, The Bites’ debut album ‘Squeeze’ will be ready for rock fans to sink their teeth into on 14th July 2023.
‘Squeeze’ resurrects the style, hop and swagger of early rock’n’roll, displaying the no-nonsense attitude of The Hives and the sheer recklessness of Mötley Crüe. Fans of new rockers Greta Van Fleet, Dirty Honey and The Struts will also delight in the emergence of The Bites.
Having watched his profile on TikTok (@jordantylerbites) blow up, with over 2.1 million likes amassed on his music-obsessing ‘Toks and classic rock covers, Jordan felt compelled to follow his true passion of creating original music and so he founded The Bites with LA drummer, producer extraordinaire and long-time friend Mark Hylander. The duo are joined by guitarists Dustin Coon and Jono Richer, and bassist Zack Currier to round out the sound.
“Putting this record, ‘Squeeze’, together, I really wanted to create something timeless. The stigma of “rock is dead” has been so blown out of proportion. All the music we grew up with from the rock legends of the 60s, 70s and 80s, we’ve heard over and over again to the point where it’s become a part of us. We want to give fans something special with ‘Squeeze’, when you hear this album in full, for the first time, hopefully it’ll give you the excitement and joy of albums that you’ve been listening to for decades. It’s gonna get in your bones, baby!” Jordan testifies.
‘Squeeze’ is available to pre-order at earache.com/thebites on limited edition cherry red vinyl, limited edition signed leopard print CD, and more.
