Over the course of their seven-year run back in the `00s, These Arms Are Snakes covered a lot of territory, both in terms of actual miles spent on the road and in terms of their creative bandwidth.

Though the band was often mistaken for a typical non sequitur-named screamo outfit or another"animal" indie band, the Seattle group quickly defined expectations and garnered a reputation for subverting the popular underground sounds of time.

The group cultivated a small but fervent fanbase across multiple continents with their signature combination of synth-infused noise rock, bad-trip psychedelia, flamboyant proto-metal boogie, and unhinged basement-show hardcore before imploding at the end of 2009.

And while These Arms Are Snakes' full-length albums remain fitting testaments to the band's frantic urgency and stylistic fluidity, there is a treasure trove of deep cuts buried on b-sides and split releases that further reinforce their position as one of the weirdest and wildest acts of the decade.

For the first time, those rarities and one-offs have been compiled into a cohesive overview of These Arms Are Snakes' lifespan on the double LP Duct Tape & Shivering Crows.
