These Arms Are Snakes Split
2010-01-12 by Alex C. Soothsayer | 34 Comments

Seattle hardcore group These Arms Are Snakes, which featured current and former members of Botch, Minus The Bear and Russian Circles, have broken up.

The group posted the following letter on their record label Sargent House's blog: "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."

These Arms are No Longer Snakes was my original idea for the title.

Botch needs to get back together.
Even if they still say that they never will.

Just after their best album, too. RIP to what was one of the last good living bands

It's cause the gay drummer is butt hurt somewhere in seattle.

And if Botch got back together it'd pretty much put every current metalcore band, including Converge, to shame.

It'll never happen, the members are spread too far apart. Minus the Bear and Narrows would have to break up and Russian Circles would have to find a new bassist.

I'm going for a reunion tour. Kind of like At the Gates did or something.
As long as I got to see them.
