Tour de Force



“You may think you know what a These Arms Are Snakes live show looks and sounds like… But if you’ve never seen them, I can guarantee that you have no idea.  Broken ribs, black eyes, self-induced concussions, and that is on a tame night!  Whether this is the first or the fiftieth time you have seen the band play, it’s safe to say that your face WILL BE melted by awesome!”

So begins the press release announcing this fall’s These Arms Are Snakes U.S. tour, and I really couldn’t’ve summed it up any better myself. Kip W. and I got pummelled by TAAS on Night 1 of this year’s SXSW, and having somehow never seen this amazing band live before we had no idea what we were in for. Vocalist Steve Snere hung from the rafters and drummer Chris Common is one of the most buttery smooth, finesse-style drummers I’ve ever seen in my life; I was transfixed. Don’t miss this one, kids!
