After a 14-year hiatus from the studio, Hot Snakes have triumphantly kicked down the door back into our lives with their new album, ‘Jericho Sirens’.
Musically, ‘Jericho Sirens’ incorporates the most extreme fringes of the Hot Snakes sound (the vein-bulging, 78-second ‘Why Don’t It Sink In?’, the pounding downstrokes of ‘Having Another?’), while staying true to longstanding influences such as The Wipers, Dead Moon and Suicide on propulsive tracks such as ‘Six Wave Hold- Down’, one of the first written for the project during a New Year’s Eve 2017 session in Philadelphia. Other moments like the choruses of ‘Jericho Sirens’ and ‘Psychoactive’ nod to classic- rock titans such as AC/DC and Ozzy Osbourne, with Froberg admitting, “I’m as much a hesher as I am anything else, that’s for sure.” For Reis, reactivating his creative partnership with Froberg was one of the most rewarding aspects of the process: “Our perspectives are similar. Our tastes are similar. We work really well together. And what more is there to say? Rick totally outdid himself on this record, vocally and lyrically.” ‘Jericho Sirens’ was recorded in short bursts over the past year in Philadelphia and San Diego, with assistance from longtime bassist Gar Wood. Kourkounis and Rubalcaba, both of whom drummed on prior Hot Snakes releases but never on the same one, contributed throughout.
