Dust Biters is an emerging, emotive post-hardcore band from Chicago, IL.  They feature groovy riffs and aggressive swing sound indicative of their mosaic of influences like Refused, Glassjaw, and Against Me!  It is as clever as it is reckless.

Guilt’, the debut full-length record from the band, was independently released on August 12, 2022. The album recorded, mixed, and produced by Alex Lackner (Lazarus A.D., Repentance), ‘Guilt’ is built on soaring guitars, furious drums, and gripping melodic hooks that flirt with both the somber and the rapture. Throughout the 12-track album Dust Biters creates harmony between thoughtful post-hardcore and melodically measured alternative metal.

In conjunction with the record release, Dust Biters released two collaborations: a burger with the lauded metal authority Kuma’s Corner that unites ingredients from each member’s native region, and the “Guilt Gose” with Metal Monkey Brewing – a traditional German-style sour wheat ale spiced with habanero peppers and pineapple, an allusion to the band’s penchant for musically blending the spicy and sweet. A music video for the single “Progeny” was released on Friday, 13 January 2023 along with the radio cut version.

Dust Biters live shows are cinematic and raw, inducing audiences to as much primal neck-breaking as psychedelic boogying. Their reputation for memorable and meaningful performances has seen them share the stage with Glassjaw, Bongzilla, Nekrogoblikon, Electric Six, and Empty Streets.

Dust Biters is Nick Kinsley (guitar, vocals), Nick Miller (guitar, backing vocals), Thomas “Tommy” R. van Arsdale (drums, piano, backing vocals), and Bryan Fonseca (bass, backing vocals).

Check out the video for ‘Progeny’ below as well as out interview with Miller and R. Van Arsdale.

Until next time, this is Big L saying, ‘keep those horns up and rock on!! \m/ \m/
