Teaneck, NJ // January, 19th: In anticipation of their debut album release, Leap Of Love, the New Jersey quintet aptly known as Super Snake have teamed-up withBrooklyn Vegan to unveil their ghastly new single “Big Seize” [LINK]. Written from the perspective of a Nosferatu-esque character who is consumed by a dark desire for affection, the song informed the album’s overarching theme and lyrical concepts. Taking cues from B horror slasher flicks and pulp-comic elements, “Big Seize” rumbles along like a funeral dirge or a snapshot from the ‘The Devils Rejects’.
Lead singer Jerry Jones, who also fronts the band Trophy Scars (currently on hiatus), shared a few thoughts on the new Super Snake single: There is this oscillating psychedelia that can melt you in there—it was one of our favorite moments writing together. It was the first song completed so it made sense to be the first single with our new guitarists who totally just shredded and really inspired the hell out of us with the rest of the EP.

Produced by Kevin Antreassian from the Dillinger Escape Plan, Leap Of Love has all the notable hallmarks that one might expect from a veteran hardcore musician/producer, but there are a lot of sonic surprises on the album that will catch you off guard and have you going back for a second listen. The album was recorded while the band was onsite at a hunters lodge in Virginia’s Smokey Mountains for a week during summer 2015. Located within the Appalachian Mountains, the setting inspired layers of detail within the record.
Leap Of Love will be available in physical format prior to its official release at the band’s album release show on February 3rd at Mexicali Live (Event link HERE) in Teaneck, NJ. Super Snake will be playing with local friends Will Wood & The Tapeworms, Don’t Upset The Bear, Trü and DJDLJ. The album will be available for purchase in all other formats just in time to ruin Valentines Day on February, 14th.

About Super Snake:
Super Snake is a mouthful of psychedelics washed down with ten beers while listening to Black Sabbath and the dirtier parts of Sonic Youth. It wasn’t always like this, but the New Jersey quintet has recently discovered their true wheel house after dropping two independently released, warmly received, EPs. The band embarked on a special journey to ensure the recording of their recent full length was as spellbinding and unpredictable as the journey itself. “Leap of Love”, the new LP, was recorded with Kevin Antreassian from the Dillinger Escape Plan in a haunted cabin in the middle-of-nowhere northern Virginia on a 150-acre-property. The band managed to terrify neighboring horses, destroy golf carts, build bonfires so big they ripped a hole in the sky, lose large sums of money to producer, Antreassian, in high-stakes cee-lo games, detonate explosive targets with assault weapons, and most importantly, record some of the biggest, grooviest, dirtiest riffs and feedback against mountains alongside their colossal bonfires all while consuming near lethal doses of shaman-esque medicine. Yes, needless to say, “Leap of Love” is a trip. A trip that has taken nearly two committed years to complete. All the sticky details are there for your listening pleasure. Sit back, close your eyes, and enjoy the leap.
