THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES
OXENEERS OR THE LION SLEEPS WHEN... (JADE TREE)
Formed from the ashes of seminal art thrashers Botch and Minneapolis hardcore heroes Kill Sadie, Seattle's THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES are filled to the brim with sinister guitar licks, equal parts snarly vocals and a pension for ethereal and spaced-out musical interludes.
Oxeneers or The Lion Sleeps When its Antelope Go Home is, in many ways, the completion of the promise made with the potential of last year's This is Meant to Hurt You EP.
The new album sparkles with a tight, visceral momentum, both angular and infectious this is the record THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES set out to make, a confident testimonial, a vicious revision and a true confrontation in every sense of the word.
THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES debut EP has sold 10,000 copies worldwide. THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES praises have been sung in Rolling Stone, Revolver, AP, Magnet, CMJ, Thrasher, Rock Sound UK to name a few.
