Hot Snakes Drop New Video & New Single


Last year Hot Snakes decided to drop a song off of a very limited edition tour seven inch. The song was “Checkmate” and in case you saw their European tour, you didn’t pick up the seven inch. While “Checkmate” was the A-side, the B-side wasn’t made available until now. Complete with a new video that a “trip” the song is ready to stream and purchase today on Bandcamp.

The black and white video features children playing, plenty of skateboarding and of course some paper for the tongue. The song itself has plenty of throttled energy, offering a sound that stays within the down tuned sound of the band while staying snappy. Even the vocals head a bit away from what you’re used to, yet it works and works well here.

View the video above or check it out on YouTube. Stream the song or purchase it from Bandamp via Sub Pop Records if you’re down.

David Garrick has spent the last five years interviewing some of the most intriguing and engaging artists performing today. Everyone from Angel Olsen to Phoebe Bridgers, Wire to Yo La Tengo, Snail Mail to Soccer Mommy, Ghost to First Aid Kit, The Breeders to Protomartyr, and many more. He's a giant fan of music of pretty much any genre; but especially to the underdogs. He's been known to see more concerts in a week than many people will see in a year.
