Seattle’s noisemakers THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES are playing through the pain. After this year’s CMJ, covered in equal parts blood and sweat, the band hobbled off stage with a series of sprained limbs, at least one broken hand, and a roomful of dropped jaws.

The foursome have been out in support of their recent full length, , and night after night folks who might have seen them open for hometown compatriots Minus The Bear or The Blood Brothers in the past are confounded by a band that has developed into a massive headliner in their own right.

Critics have also been bowled over. Alternative Press wondered, "How many records released this year will make you think and sweat? I know of at least one" and Terrorizer echoed “[Easter is] Like Refused and Radiohead had a baby that avoided all the faults of its parents.” Even the ever hip URB magazine calls Easter "Some of the grooviest whatever-core you’ll hear all year"

Now most bands might consider the job done and simply pull up their pants and head home, but THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES are not nearly so lazy. The band recently completed work on their first proper video to date. Produced by Artificial Army [Mars Volta, Thursday, Coheed and Cambria] the video is an equal parts homage to innocence lost as it is an expose on the image obsessed underbelly of celebrity culture; replete with drugs, handclaps, pulsing privates, and a wide eyed pink pony.

The band finishes up it’s full US tour this month, before headed to the UK for a few pints and back for their first hometown stop, December 15th at Neumo’s. 2007 will see the bands slaying non-stop, first stop? A trip to Japan with Boris & Isis. Not bad. Not bad at all.

Easter is also now available for online .

Be sure to always check the for the most current information and further details.

"For all the discussion of concept, geography, and songcraft, it’s the heart pulsing through the reverb that makes Anti-Anti a must-listen." – Stereogum

"Snowden lace their upbeat, catchy guitar stomps with thoughtful lyrics diametrically opposed to mindless hipsterism." – Entertainment Weekly

"Snowden dropped a clever, catchy rock record" – The Fader

"Jeffare’s mellowed, airy vocals…meander over the
ghostly, willowed music rather than jar them from it." – Beautiful Decay

"It’s clear [Snowden] aren’t willing to just turn on the cruise control through [their] show; the performance is more like a constant pulse between implosion and explosion with each member able to flail or pull back seamlessly" – CMJ

"Snowden’s wavering gloom should be a nice fit for your
collection." – All Music Guide

"The charm of Snowden’s debut is its understated authenticity: Underneath all the accoutrements, these are Jeffares’s bedroom songs, and it’s not hard
to extrapolate to their simpler days as anguished acoustic ballads." – Village Voice

"The original Snowden taught Yossarian that man is matter– kill us and we’re dead. It’s OK for stylish post-punk to matter, too, and Anti-Anti does so without forgetting to be fun." – Pitchfork

"[Anti Anti's] balance of gloom and grandeur is brilliantly executed, ultimately leaving the listener with an insatiable thirst for more of the same." – Drowned in Sound

"Anti-Anti is a solid, even impressive, debut." – Aversion

"Buzzing keys lead into a twitchy, danceable beat with a groovy bass line giving way to head honcho Jordan Jeffares’ inspired vocals." – Indieworkshop

"Pick of the month…" – Transworld Skateboarding

"The Cure never delivered gloom so buzzy." – URB

"Snowden’s music sounds like Interpol’s dark momentum getting tripped up on the Arcade Fire’s treacherous terrain – lacquered bolts of guitar judder over off-kilter percussion, and anomic vocals blear through the densely layered mix." – Paste

"[Anti-Anti is] one of the most melodic, addictive discs of 2006." – Denver Post
