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, the record 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.”
