Mitch Harris (born October 31, 1969) is an American guitarist, born in Queens, New York, then moving to Las Vegas, Nevada, but currently living in Birmingham, England. He started his career in the grindcore band Righteous Pigs. He did a side project with Mick Harris – then the drummer of grindcore band Napalm Death, called Defecation. Shortly thereafter, he left Righteous Pigs and joined Napalm Death permanently in 1989, firstly appearing on the Harmony Corruption album. He is still with them, playing guitar and back-up vocals.[1] He also participated in the projects Meathook Seed, Little Giant Drug and Goatlord. In 2013, a featured song called "K.C.S." was included on the album Savages by the band Soulfly that was released on October 4, 2013, and was written by Harris and Max Cavalera.[2]

His latest band project is called Menace, who released their debut album, Impact Velocity, on March 14, and March 18, 2014 in the US, on the label Season of Mist.[3]

In June 2017, Harris will release his first solo album titled 'Butterflies R Kewl' .The album will contain 15 tracks with Harris lead singing and playing guitar on all of them. The album will be a departure for Harris since the only genres of music featured on the album were Bubblegum Dance, Twee Pop, Teen Pop, Euro Reggae, and Yacht Rock. Harris says he really wanted to try something 'so new it would cause massive shock to our devoted fans'. Harris's solo album has songs written on it by Lance Bass, Mariah Carey and Diane Warren. The album is being produced by Diane Warren and Johnny Wright.[4]
