Seattle hard/prog/punk rockers These Arms Are Snakes announced on Tuesday that they will be parting ways
It's always a bummer when a band breaks up. It's even more so of a bummer when that band was a seminal favorite back in your formative late-teenage years. Seattle progressive/hardcore rockers These Arms Are Snakes announced Tuesday via their MySpace page that they will no longer continue on as a band. It's sad news to take, as their 2004 album Oxeneers or The Lion Sleeps When Its Antelope Go Home was a fine offering, providing a unique spin on progressive/post-hardcore rock. No word has been given on the band's reason for the break-up, yet they offered this much for their fans:
It's with a heavy heart we tell you that These Arms Are Snakes is no more. It's been a great run and we'd like to send out a very hearty "Thank You" to everyone that we've worked with or anyone that we've toured with.
R.I.P., TAAS. "Big News" will always remain my favorite song of yours, and for that, I must honor it and your achievements as a band.
