Algiers have shared the first single, “Bite Back”, off their upcoming new album. The single features billy woods & Backxwash.
The video was directed by Murat Gökmen
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.” 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.”
Backxwash (the DoomRap queen) said: “This feels like the soundtrack to revolutionary struggle. I am honored to participate side by side with an incredible array of artistry.”
billy woods said: “Working with Algiers was a dope experience on many levels, and I was even more excited when they said they were shooting a video. Plus knowing Backxwash was involved, I had to do it.”
