Hot Snakes are recording a new album. Singing Serpent Studio revealed in a Facebook post that the band recorded some songs in February for what will be their first full-length album since 2004’s Audit in Progress. The band also recorded a couple of tracks in Philadelphia at the end of 2016 and intend to have at least one more recording session before the end of the year. In a phone interview, guitarist John Reis says that the group began recording without any immediate expectations.
“We just kind of wanted to take it slow,” he says. “The band is separated by thousands of miles. We went to Philly and recorded some songs. Then we returned to San Diego and recorded some more songs. The goal was to just see what would transpire—keep it loose.”
