NEW MUSIC: AVRIL LAVIGNE | BITE ME
Avril Lavigne is back her pop-punk roots serving up her latest single, "Bite Me." It's the first piece of new music for Lavigne since she recently aligned herself with Travis Barker's DTA Records. The high-energy track is sure to keep listeners tapping their toes. It also has some impressive backing behind the scenes as Barker, Goldfinger's John Feldmann and recent duet partner Mod Sun all serve as co-producers on the track. The pairing with Barker's label to back her new music is something both artists are beaming about. "Avril and I have been friends for a long time, but I think I’ve been a fan of hers even longer! She’s a true badass and an icon as a performer, songwriter and presence. We had gotten in the studio earlier this year, and we were having so much fun that I knew I wanted to ask her to join the DTA team. I’m so stoked she’s now part of the label. I can’t wait for everybody to experience the incredible music she’s about to drop,” says Barker. Of her new song, she continues, "I am excited to be dropping 'Bite Me.' It’s an anthem about knowing your worth, what you deserve and not giving someone a second chance who doesn’t deserve you.” Lavigne recently joined forces with Barker on Williow’s pop-punk single ‘Grow.’ Back in December 2020, she was pictured in the studio with the sticksman’s friend and collaborator Machine Gun Kelly.
