According to this posting, Hot Snakes have decided to part ways. The punk rock act had released a series of records on bandmember John Reis' Swami Records, including Automatic Midnight, Suicide Invoice, Audit in Progress and most recently, Peel Sessions.
In a hand-scrawled message, Reis had this to say:
So the rather sad news to report is that Hot Snakes will be packing it in after our current plans. It was a complete thrill to be part of and satisfied my insatiable hunger for sinister throbbing action. Thank you to all that urged us along and leant an ear for us to abuse.
As explained in the message, the band will complete the remainder of their tour which includes some Australia dates and has also planned two farewell shows in Los Angeles and San Diego with The Husbands and The Heartaches.
