Seattle, WA’s THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES will be calling Jade Tree home, as they recently joined the growing Jade Tree roster. With members who have participated in such Northwestern luminaries as Botch, Nineironspitfire, and Kill Sadie, THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES‘ pedigree is only but a touchstone for the band’s progressive aggression and passionate chaos. Defying perimeters, THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES match their determined rock with side-winding sonic parallels and layers of subtle confusion. For reference think the nouveau punk of Public Image Ltd., all-or-nothing pandemonium of Universal Order of Armageddon, prog-rock leanings of Cave In, and millennium thrash of Blood Brothers. The band will be recording their debut, This Is Meant To Hurt You CD EP (JT1084) with Matt Bayles (Blood Brothers, Isis) at the end of April for an August 12 release date (available for preorder June 17). Until then, enjoy the MP3 from the band’s unreleased demo and see why you should be checking out THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES.
