The wildmen of These Arms Are Snakes were back at it on Friday 9/25 at Shea Stadium, when the band teamed up with Violent Bullshit (mems Panthers, Orchid, Black Army Jacket, Half Man, etc) and DD/MM/YY.

The Shea Stadium gig was one of two in NYC for the band. The second was Mercury Lounge the next day (9/27). How were they?

Brian Cook of TAAS does time in another band, Russian Circles, who are scheduled to take on Bowery Ballroom with Young Widows and Phantom Family Halo. Tickets are on sale.

Meanwhile, some bad news out of the Young Widows camp that will force them to cancel all remaining dates with Thursday, though their Russian Circles tour is mostly unaffected for now.

Unfortunately, due to circumstances completely out of our control, we have had to drop of of our tour with Thursday. Apologies to all but our attention is needed at home right now.
A big thanks to the Thursday crew for taking us out and being extremely supportive of what we do; it means a lot.
You can look for us to make up the dates in the next 2 months with our friends Russian Circles. We’ll also be playing a bunch of new material, so we hope to see you on the road.
-Nick

All the best to the band.
