King Parrot is a 5 piece band from Melbourne who play extreme music with elements of thrash, death, grind and punk rock. Uniquely Australian with their energy, presence and humour King Parrot are well renowned for their aggressive and visually entertaining live show. Since the bands inception onto the live scene in Australia in 2011, their work ethic and commitment to touring and releasing new material has seen them become one of the leading acts in this genre. The band recently won Best Heavy album at The Age Newspaper/Music Victoria music awards and also won Act of the Year at The Cherry Bar - AC/DC Lane - Jagermeister awards for 2013. The band will head to SXSW in Texas in 2014 and undertake a full US tour after.
Both releases have been serviced by Impedance Records in Australia. This year King Parrot signed a 3 album worldwide deal with Candlelight Records who are based in the United Kingdom and United States of America.
Candlelight Records are affiliated with EMI label services and Caroline Distribution in the USA and Plastic Head distribution in Europe.
Both King Parrot the EP and album have been combined and released under the "Bite Your Head Off" banner for the worldwide market.
In March 2013 the band self funded a tour to Indonesia where they played 6 shows and appeared at Obscene Extreme Festival in Jakarta. Festival organiser, Miloslav Urbanec proclaimed the King Parrot set was one of the "most enjoyable performances he had seen in his 20 years of running the festival". King Parrot has been a major draw card on Australia's Bastardfest, Obscene Extreme, Devil's Kitchen, Dead of Winter, Cherry Rock and Whiplash Festivals.
In June 2013 King Parrot participated in a national tour presented by youth broadcaster Triple J with internationally recognised acts Thy Art is Murder and Cattle Decapitation (USA). They have recently just finished a tour with another internationally renowned group Psycroptic, and have followed that up with their own Australian tour in September 2014. Solidifying the bands presence in the national market, King Parrot have recently been rewarded with the cover of Veri-Live magazine in July, and will feature on the cover of the nationally distributed Heavy Music Magazine in August.
A second single and video for the track "Bozo" has just been released. The video is based around the bands live performance and was filmed at the Cherry Rock Festival in AC/DC lane Melbourne in May 2013. Their first single and video for the song "Shit on the Liver" was a finalist in the Australian music video competition at St Kilda film festival. The video has over 100,000 hits on Youtube and has been hailed by critics and media alike as one the best Australian underground heavy metal video's of all time.
CHILD BITE is a Detroit-based punk/metal/noise rock band formed in 2005. Currently signed to Phil Anselmo's Housecore Records as well as Indianapolis-based Joyful Noise Recordings, their music consists of atonal guitar melodies, distorted bass, frequent rhythmic shifts, and frenzied, howling vocals. Their most easily identifiable influences include '80s hardcore (Black Flag, Dead Kennedys) and '90s alternative (The Jesus Lizard, Faith No More). Their sound has been described as "enormous and predatory, from the baleful rhythm section to Shawn Knight's [frightening vocals]" (Fine Print Mag, 2013). CHILD BITE has over a dozen releases of varying lengths, including a triple split 7" with David Yow & Thurston Moore, as well as a 5" EP of Anal Cunt songs featuring Phil Anselmo on vocals.
