These Arms Are Snakes recently blogged about an upcoming split 7" for Vinyl Collective with Minus The Bear. The Seattle band chose to cover a track from defunct Memphis garage act Lost Sounds on their side. In their own words:
Yes, the new record isn't even out yet. But we're back in the studio laying down some new songs for some upcoming projects. We haven't quite allocated all of the material yet, but one thing is certain: one song will wind up on a split 7" to be released by our friends over at Vinyl Collective. Our side of the record is a cover by our favorite defunct garage/goth/new-wave band out of Memphis... Lost Sounds. We figure it's a fitting nod to their guitarist/co-vocalist Alicja Trout, who was awesome enough to contribute backing vocals to our song "Red Line Season." We opted to tackle a rendition of "Energy Drink and the Long Walk Home" of the Rat's Brains and Microchips album. For the other side of the 7", our good friends in Minus The Bear will contribute a cover of their own. Not sure what song they've picked, but I'm sure it'll be mind-blowing. More details will come as we figure this shit out...
Just yesterday These Arms Are Snakes unveiled the first song from their upcoming record Tail Swallower & Dove. You can grab the song "Red Line Season" from Spinner.com or stream it at MySpace. The record is due out on October 7, 2008.
