Los Angeles, CA – Los Angeles’ dark-rock band Silver Snakes has announced plans to release a new EP called Scathe, this coming Friday, October 20th via Evil Ink Records. Today, the band has partnered with GhostCultMag.com to reveal the record’s first new track, a cover of Duran Duran’s classic song “Come Undone.” Fans can purchase/stream the record digitally on Friday.
Silver Snakes’ new record Scathe pays tribute to bands that have inspired and influenced their sound and tastes over the years, including covers of tracks by Duran Duran, Garbage and Ministry. The record also features a new original song “Follow Your Lead” and a remix of their song “Charmer” (Nexialist X L.A. Wombat Remix).
“The idea behind Scathe was to be a bridge between our last release, Saboteur, and the direction we have been moving in while writing new material,” says vocalist Alex Estrada. “We chose three different songs by artists that have had influence on us over the years, “Come Undone” by Duran Duran, “#1 Crush” by Garbage, and “Burning Inside” by Ministry. Along with these songs we have included a brand new track, Follow Your Lead, as well as a Remix of the song “Charmer” off of our previous album. Scathe was arranged and self produced in the summer of 2017 in various hotel rooms while on tour as well as The Earth Capital in Los Angeles, CA. It was then Mastered by Greg Reely (Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly). We have already begun work on a new full length recording to be released some time in 2018. We’ll see you soon.”
Silver Snakes has spent the last 2 years on the road in support of Saboteur, including performances at Aftershock Festival, Rock On The Range, Chicago Open Air Festival, Northern Invasion and shows with Bring Me The Horizon, Coheed and Cambria, Korn, Breaking Benjamin, letlive., Seahaven and Night Verses among others. The band will be performing a one of show on November 26th in Sacramento at Ace of Spades with glassjaw.
