HOT SNAKES R.I.P
(© Kevin Scanlon)
After five years the Hot Snakes have decided to disband immediately following their August festival dates in Norway and Sweden. From their inception, Hot Snakes was a sporadic cross country art project that catered wholly to the impulses of it's parts. With every practice, show and recording the band bullied time with an urgency ignited by the belief that an uncertain expiration date was inevitable. So to explain an uncomplicated situation uncomplicatedly, the band reached a point where they feel it is now time to move on.
Hot Snakes achieved far more than their expectations and exceeded beyond what they thought possible given the multitude of limitations that shaped their situation. We had a blast and savored every down stroke.
Thanks to all that celebrated the sound.
The bands final shows are as follows:
August 7th @ Troubadour - Los Angeles, CA
August 8th @ Casbah - San Diego, CA
August 9th @ Bowery Ballroom - New York, NY
August 11th @ Underworld - London, England with Ted Leo
August 12th @ Oya Fest - Oslo, Norway
August 13th @ Emmaboda Fest - Sweden
Hot Snakes are survived by three full length albums and a Peel Session EP.
