In the video, which also features Barker, Lavigne shows off a DTA Records sticker on her guitar.

“I’ve always admired Travis and his work,” Lavigne says. “The first time we worked together was 15 years ago on my album The Best Damn Thing, and I have really enjoyed watching him develop into the producer that he is today. We spent a lot of time writing songs and working on this record together, and signing to his record label DTA felt like the perfect home for me and my new music. Travis understands my vision as a musician, my creative process as an artist and my goals at this stage in my career.”

“Bite Me” lyrics

You shoulda known better better to fuck with someone like me
Forever and ever you’re going to wish I was your wifey 

Don’t act so innocent
This was no accident
You planned this in the end
And now it’s over 

Say what you want to say
You lied and I got played
You threw it all away
And now it’s over 

Just face it
We didn’t make it
You bit off more than you can chew
Can you taste it? 

You shoulda known better better to fuck with someone like me
Forever and ever you’re going to wish I was your wifey
Should’ve held on
Should’ve treated me right
I gave you one chance
You don’t get it twice 

And we’ll be together never
So baby you can bite me
Don’t hold your breath
Cause you’re still choking on your words
Those things you said might be the last ones that I heard 

So come pick up your clothes from the front yard
Sprinklers on burn the rest in the backyard
Should’ve had the guts just to say goodbye
Now you’re going to have regrets for the rest of your life 

Just face it
We didn’t make it

You bit off more than you can chew
Can you taste it? 

You shoulda known better better to fuck with someone like me
Forever and ever you’re going to wish I was your wifey
Should’ve held on
Should’ve treated me right
I gave you one chance
You don’t get it twice 

And we’ll be together never
So baby you can bite me 

I bet you taste me on the tip of your tongue
Tip of your tongue
Tip of your tongue
I fell fast when I know I shoulda run
Know I shoulda run
Know I shoulda run
I bet you taste me on the tip of your tongue
Tip of your tongue
Tip of your tongue
I fell fast when I know I shoulda run
Know I shoulda run
Know I shoulda run 

You shoulda known better better to fuck with someone like me
Forever and ever you’re going to wish I was your wifey
Should’ve held on
Should’ve treated me right
I gave you one chance
You don’t get it twice
And we’ll be together never
So baby you can bite me
