CHECK THIS: THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES
Seattle band These Arms Are Snakes are back with Easter, their new full length from Jade Tree Records. Before you think the band has gone soft with the new album name, be assured that the band is as caustic as ever; they've continued to walk, maybe run, down their path of post-hardcore, math-influenced music. Seriously, you might go blind if you stare at the album long enough.
The music is polished but with a rough edge, the songwriting is solid and some of the best to ever come out of These Arms Are Snakes. They've become punk professionals.
Drummer Chris Common did the recording and producing at Seattle's own Red Room, and he and the band worked to bring out some seriously dark elements and put them in the music. "There is a real sense of doom amongst people these days. It's very hard for that not to come out," says vocalist Steve Snere.
They've spent the past two years on the road with bands like the Blood Brothers, Minus The Bear, and Isis, and have played in front of a lot of people, and a lot of people have written a lot of words about them. They've also released two EP 's and a full length album on Jade Tree Records. The new album comes out on October 10th on Jade Tree Records, and they'll be touring the US in October and November.
