“Checkmate” Hot Snakes

"Checkmate" by Hot Snakes is Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day'
Hot Snakes "Checkmate"

Sub Pop recording artists Hot Snakes have released a new single “Checkmate.” The track is available directly from the band, in very limited numbers, as a physical 7” at their upcoming shows. The 7” will also include the exclusive b-side “Not in Time.” In the words of Hot Snakes’ Rick Froberg, “Checkmate” is “big, fatty content freshly extruded from the Hot Snakes sausage machine. Same ingredients, new flav.” Hot Snakes will kick off a 12-date tour in the UK & Ireland on December 3rd. The band’s current full-length Jericho Sirens is now available via Sub Pop Records
