Once touted the saviours of rock ‘n’ roll, Hot Snakes (US) have reformed and are heading our way to play three shows only, with one in Sydney, one at Meredith Music Festival, and this Corner show.
Founded in 1999 in San Diego, California, by John Reis (Drive like Jehu and Rocket from the Crypt) and Rick Froberg (Drive like Jehu), Hot Snakes certainly made their mark on the punk rock scene. Due to logistics (band members lived on almost opposite sides of the US) they called it a day soon after their last Australian tour, but now have reformed to play a small handful of shows at some of the world’s coolest music festivals heralded by an invitation from our very own Meredith Music Festival.
The last time the lads landed on Australian soil was in 2006, at which time they also recorded a live studio album with ABC and Triple J, aptly named, ‘Thunder Down Under’.
