BITERS release 'Restless Hearts' video following brush with police


Atlanta rock 'n' roll punks BITERS have released their edgy new music video for the track "Restless Hearts", which appears on their forthcoming debut album, 'Electric Blood'.

Filmed with director Video Rahim (MASTODON) on location in their hometown, the video for "Restless Hearts" sees BITERSpushing the limits of rock 'n' roll excess with a wild keg party, cruising the streets of Atlanta in a stolen police cruiser, and frontman Tuk surfing on the boot of a car whilst tearing down the road at 50mph.

UK fans should also keep an eye on Kerrang! TV to see the video running in the Fresh Blood segment from today onwards.

Director Video Rahim discusses the band's run in with the law: "During the shoot, we mounted a camera to the front of a car to capture footage of Tuk and the band. They drove off with the camera and shortly thereafter I received a call from Tuk saying he had been pulled over and thought he was going to jail. I had to rush down and talk to the police officers to keep Tuk from being arrested."

"Standing on the trunk of a '70s Cadillac at 3am going 45-50mph and lip-synching while wearing Cuban heel boots was the best idea I've had in a long time," adds BITERS frontman Tuk.

BITERS' eagerly-anticipated debut album, 'Electric Blood', is due to be released on August 7th worldwide. Pre-order the album now on CD and limited edition coloured vinyl at http://www.earache.com/biters
