LA dark-rock band Silver Snakes announced earlier this week that they would be releasing a new EP titled Scathe which dropped Friday via Evil Ink Records. The EP stands out from others, in that the new record is compiled of covers of popular tracks that Silver Snakes’ pay tribute to, the bands that inspired and influenced their own sound over the years.
Included in the EP are Silver Snakes’ cover versions of songs originally performed by Duran Duran, Garbage, and Ministry. The EP also has an original new song titled, “Follow Your Lead.”
“The idea behind Scathe was to be a bridge between our last release, Saboteur, and the direction we have been moving in while writing new material,” says vocalist Alex Estrada. “We chose three different songs by artists that have had influence on us over the years, “Come Undone” by Duran Duran, “#1 Crush” by Garbage, and “Burning Inside” by Ministry. Along with these songs we have included a brand new track, Follow Your Lead, as well as a Remix of the song “Charmer” off of our previous album. Scathe was arranged and self produced in the summer of 2017 in various hotel rooms while on tour as well as The Earth Capital in Los Angeles, CA. It was then Mastered by Greg Reely (Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly). We have already begun work on a new full length recording to be released some time in 2018. We’ll see you soon.”
