Silver Snakes

snakes-2Following the success their sophomore record, Year of the Snake, Los Angeles’ Silver Snakes forges down a darker path with radical turns on their forthcoming record Saboteur. The band, comprised of Alex Estrada (vocals), Mike Trujillo (bass), Jeremiah Bignell (guitar) and Garrett Harney (drums), continues their evolution of sound by incorporating influences of ‘90’s industrial and elements of doom metal into their post-hardcore sound. The result is cathartic and innovative. Heavy, stabbing riffs crescendo into massive walls of guitars that give way to atmospheric and at times ethereal moments of calm that relay underlying messages of sabotage and deception.

“Saboteur is a record summed up by its title. It’s about sabotage, it’s about using direct action to accomplish a goal,” Estrada explains. “It can be applied to many situations: Personal, Political etc. It’s about having the passion to do absolutely whatever it takes to make a point even if it’s potentially harmful.”

Thematic elements of sabotage are felt throughout the record and relatable to listeners, including on their new song “Raindance,” which speaks to the manipulation in relationships.

“”Raindance” was one of the first songs written for the record,” Estrada says. “It’s the follow up track to a song we previously released called “Sundance” which was about being caught up in abusive relationships. “Raindance” is about taking the plunge into new endeavors only to have voices from the past show up to steer you elsewhere. It’s the balance between sides, The person being torn down and the voice of negativity all speaking at once.”

Silver Snakes’ impending release also marks the beginning of their relationship with Coheed and Cambria guitarist/singer Claudio Sanchez’s label Evil Ink Records, who recently signed the band and will distribute Saboteur.

“We are very grateful to be working with Evil Ink Records for the release of Saboteur,” Estrada says. “Being part of a label founded by a musician as hardworking and successful as Claudio Sanchez is very exciting for us. We’ve had full creative control over every aspect of this release and could not be happier with the support they have shown us along the way.”

Silver Snakes will join Coheed and Cambria and glassjaw on tour in February in support of Saboteur. Pre-order the album now and follow the band at https://www.facebook.com/yearofthesnakes for additional updates.

LA underground rock band Silver Snakes has teamed up with Noisey.com today to unleash a new song called “Red Wolf” from their upcoming album, Saboteur, that’s due out via Evil Ink Records (U.S.) and Pelagic Records (Europe) on February 5th. Album pre-orders are available now from Evil Ink Records (U.S.) and Pelagic Records (Europe).

Stream “Red Wolf” now at Noisey.com

“Red Wolf was one of the last songs written for the album,” says vocalist/guitarist Alex Estrada. “We had this 8 minute long sludge track that I was having trouble with lyrically so I decided to rework all of the music while keeping the focus on the unconventional tuning. Lyrically it was inspired by the mysticism of protection spells, One in particular called the ‘7 knots untying’ and how that would apply to political and environmental activists seeking to sabotage their enemies.”

Silver Snakes will join Coheed and Cambria, glassjaw and I The Mighty on tour in February in support of Saboteur. Tickets are onsale now here. Follow Silver Snakes and Evil Ink Records for additional updates.

On the heels of their recent album announcement, LA rock band Silver Snakes has debuted a new lyric video for their song “Raindance.” The band will release their third studio album, Saboteur, via Evil Ink Records (U.S.) and Pelagic Records (Europe) on February 5th.

“‘Raindance,’ is a pummeling rock song that fits nicely between the atmospheric post-hardcore of Title Fight/Superheaven and the sludge-rock of Baroness/Torche. It’s an absolute ripper.” – BrooklynVegan.com
