Song of the Day: Algiers – Bite Back


‘Bite Back’ is the first new music from Algiers – the four-piece of Franklin James Fisher, Ryan Mahan, Lee Tesche and Matt Tong – since their critically acclaimed third album There Is No Year in 2020. The band will make their UK and European live return in early 2023, with a run of headline dates kicking off February 9th in Dublin and culminating March 8th at The Dome.

Multi-instrumentalist/producer Ryan Mahan said: “Shit’s been so real the past few years, we really needed to grow our community of collaborators and make solid the bonds we’ve always felt, particularly with rap heads. And to have the two best rappers around, billy woods AND Backxwash, on the same Algiers-produced track? Pinch me, for real.”

Singer Franklin James Fisher said: “Ryan showed up one day with this beautifully epic instrumental and said, “I’ve got this song and I want to call it ‘Bite Back’. It immediately reminded me why I joined this band and the rest of the song seemed to write itself. It’s a classic example of our Lenin-McCartney dynamic.” Enjoy the tune!
