Silver Snakes Saboteur on LP
Southern California's rising underground alternative-rock band Silver Snakes will make their much anticipated return in 2016 with the release of their third studio album, Saboteur. Following the success their sophomore record, Year of the Snake, Los Angeles' Silver Snakes forges down a darker path with radical turns on Saboteur.
The band, comprised of Alex Estrada (vocals), Mike Trujillo (bass), Jeremiah Bignell (guitar) and Garrett Harney (drums), continues their evolution of sound by incorporating influences of ‘90's industrial and elements of doom metal into their post-hardcore sound. The result is cathartic and innovative. Heavy, stabbing riffs crescendo into massive walls of guitars that give way to atmospheric and at times ethereal moments of calm that relay underlying messages of sabotage and deception.
"Saboteur is a record summed up by its title. It's about sabotage, it's about using direct action to accomplish a goal," Estrada explains. "It can be applied to many situations: Personal, Political etc. It's about having the passion to do absolutely whatever it takes to make a point even if it's potentially harmful."
Saboteur also marks the beginning of their relationship with Coheed and Cambria guitarist/singer Claudio Sanchez's label Evil Ink Records, who recently signed the band and will distribute the album. "We are very grateful to be working with Evil Ink Records for the release of Saboteur," Estrada adds. "Being part of a label founded by a musician as hardworking and successful as Claudio Sanchez is very exciting for us. We've had full creative control over every aspect of this release and could not be happier with the support they have shown us along the way."
