An eclectic new album from a wider palette expanding The Snakes' Stones-esque country swagger through soulful Celtic folk to dirty glam-hued rock & roll.

Over the last ten years, The Snakes have become known as the bad boys of British country, with their guitar fuelled rock & roll, Uncut called them "Muswell Hill's own Whiskeytown" after their appearance on Clubhouse Records' compilation 'Divided By A Common Language'.

Their debut album, 'Songs From The Satellite's (2006), brought them to the attention of legendary BBC Radio 2 broadcasters Bob Harris and Mark Lamarr, who both declared themselves fans of the band,

Their third album released on the legendary Bucketfull of Brains label sees the band expanding on their established alt-country repertoire from Stonesesque country swagger through soulful Celtic folk to the dirty rock & roll of Mott the Hoople and Mink Deville, sharing a bottle of bourbon with Tom Petty and Bob Dylan along the way.

'The Last Days Of Rock & Roll' is not a lament, but a declaration of defiance in an age of intangible downloads and disposable talent shows. It expands on its critically acclaimed predecessor Sometime Soon, (four stars in Uncut) with added violin, sitar, saxophone and pedal steel plus a special guest appearance from Redlands Palomino Co. singer Hannah Elton-Wall on the dynamic opener 'Too Hard'.
