Hot Snakes reunite for live shows and first new album since 2004

Post-hardcore group Hot Snakes have returned with details of a new tour and plans for their first studio album in well over a decade.

The group, featuring John Reis and Rick Froberg (Drive Like Jehu, Pitchfork), released three records during their brief lifespan before splitting in 2005. 2011 saw a short live reunion, but this return will see the group releasing their first new music since 2004's Audit In Progress (not counting live LP Thunder Down Under which was released in 2006).

"We are stoked that plans are being planned," Hot Snakes write on Facebook. "Shows will be played, records will be made..."

The band have signed with Sub Pop for the new record, which is slated for a spring 2018 release. Sub Pop are also set to reissue the first three Hot Snakes records.

Hot Snakes will play a string of US shows this November - their first in six years - including three in California and a stop at Brooklyn's Bell House on 16 November.

Tickets for thee shows will be on general sale from 12pm EST on 17 August. Find out more.
