About Hot Snakes

Hot Snakes are an American post-hardcore band led by Rick Froberg and John Reis. The band was founded in 1999 in San Diego, California. Reis and Froberg had previously performed together in the Pitchfork and Drive Like Jehu, after which Reis had found international success with Rocket from the Crypt. Hot Snakes disbanded in 2005 but reunited in 2011.

Although they share musical similarities with members' previous outfits, Hot Snakes have a sound that is much more primal than that of Pitchfork, Drive Like Jehu or even Rocket from the Crypt. Reis and Froberg were also heavily influenced by bands such as The Wipers, Suicide, and Michael Yonkers Band. These influences gave Hot Snakes a distinctive sound that has been described by one critic as “hardcore garage punk.” The band’s recordings and merchandise were conducted in a DIY manner, with Froberg providing all of the artwork and Reis releasing the material via his own Swami Records label.
