These Arms Are Snakes released the following joint statement:

“It’s with a heavy heart we tell you that These Arms Are Snakes is no more. It’s been a great run and we’d like to send out a very hearty “Thank You” to everyone that we’ve worked with or anyone that we’ve toured with; anyone that lent us a floor, towed our van and/or trailer, lent a van, given us a listen, downloaded our records prior to their coming out, bought our shit, or asked us where our band name came from; everyone who cooked us food, made habanero-infused tequila, had a safety meeting with us, let Steve gyrate all over you, had to live with any of us, made us pay shitloads of money to get off your punk label, got us into LOST, found Steve drunkenly wandering the streets of Tokyo alone, played Madlibs in the van (plural nouns), lost money promoting one of our shows, took Chris to the hospital, put up with our drunken sorry asses, got into a fight with us, etc. etc.

“This band could not have been possible without all of you. We sincerely thank you.”

The progressive/post-hardcore band formed in Seattle in 2002 and featured Steve Snere on vocals, Chris Common on drums, Ryan Frederiksen on guitar and MircoKORG and Brian Cook on bass, pump organ, guitar and MicroKORG. These Arms Are Snakes released three full-length studio albums, one EP, one single and a number of split albums. The band’s last show took place Dec. 19 at El Corozon in Seattle along with Schoolyard Heroes, Kane Hodder, Sirens Sister and People Eating People.
