Hear "Dark-Rock" Act Silver Snakes' Massive New Electro-Industrial Song "Smokedance"

Dark, catchy track addressing consequences of self-harm appears on upcoming full-length 'Death and the Moon'

Not long ago, singer, songwriter and producer, Alex Estrada, was sitting inside an industrial building outside of Los Angeles' Chinatown neighborhood, putting the final touches on his band Silver Snakes' new and fourth full-length, Death and the Moon. Today, we're pleased to present some of the fruits of his labor, in the form of "Smokedance" — a massive rocker featuring bone-crunching electronic bass, heart-palpitating guitar curdles, and Estrada's dark emotive vocals.

"I started writing 'Smokedance' while on tour a few years ago," Estrada recounts of the track's origins. "I knew that our next record would go even further in the electronic direction that our previous releases had touched on and figured that this track would be the best way to unapologetically introduce the shift. Lyrically the track touches on self harm and the sometimes convoluted methods used to avoid, treat, and confront the consequences of it."

Death and the Moon is due May 3rd via Evil Ink Records and will feature material that leans heavier into the grim, electronic sound you hear on "Smokedance" — which is one of three tracks on the album mixed by Michael Patterson (Nine Inch Nails, She Wants Revenge, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club). Silver Snakes first hinted at this new direction on their 2017 EP Scathe, which featured a grimy cover of Ministry's "Burning Inside."
