Hey, so the brewery have been working hard trying to get Sssnakepit available on this tour for your tastebuds to sample the fine delights we’ve crafted.
So right now, here’s how it stands…
You may or may not be aware, but we have in the past been quite outspoken about bands who charge their fans money for meet & greets. For a human to charge another human money to meet them is just wrong.
Well… if you’re going to get on your high horse, you have to be prepared to ride it around a bit, right?
News: THE PADDINGTON FRISK
On the evening (UK time) of April 4th, we will unveil the new single / video, ‘THE PADDINGTON FRISK‘.
the track is one of three recorded at Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire a couple of weeks ago. we’ll have plans for the other two tracks as the year progresses.
‘The Paddington Frisk’ was recorded once again with Dan Weller (who also worked on ‘A Flash Flood Of Colour’) and mixed by Australian producer / mixer Forrester Savell (Karnivool, amongst others).

As you might be aware, we’re quite involved with the guys at the ActionAid charity and have done stuff with them in the past.

Please check out the video, SHARE it with your mates, and do what you can to get involved and support the cause.
as you may know, there was a special little intimate show at London’s legendary 100 Club at the end of January.
