John Reis and the gang are back!

Listen To The First New Hot Snakes Song In 14 Years

The legendary Hot Snakes reunited last year and announced they were going to release a new album in 2018, the band's first in 14 years. You can now hear a snippet of the first track from the record below. It's called Why Don't It Sink In? and it sounds like classic Hot Snakes. Rattling rhythms? Check. Frantic riffs? Check. Manic wailing? Check. Oh, it's good to have them back... 

The band claim that the album, like the above video, was recorded entirely on guitarist John Reis' phone. We suspect though that they might be fibbing about at least one of those things...

Last summer we reported that the band had signed to Sub Pop to release the as-yet-untitled new album this spring, as well as reissuing their first three seminal records.
