Tour: These Arms Are Snakes, Trap Them, Narrows

These Arms Are Snakes

Go see this tour. For the love of all things rock, go see this tour if you have the chance (live on the west coast). I just saw Trap Them two nights ago and they were incredible. Their new material sounds more focused, and with Michael Justian behind the kit, even more intense. I have very high hopes for their new album Seizures In Barren Praise, which comes out November 11th. These Arms Are Snakes are also supporting their new album Tail Swallower and Dove.

Getting the chance to see Narrows makes me consider buying a plane ticket and crashing somewhere in the mission to catch this tour. The band features Dave Verellen (ex-singer of Botch) on vocals, along with members of These Arms Are Snakes and Some Girls. The band does not plan to tour extensively, or often.

Wait, what? Mike Justain?

I am so out of the loop...

Did Unearth oust him? At least he's in a good band now...

Mike Justain has been Trap Them's drummer since early 2008 I think. I saw him behind the kit during the Disfear tour and at Maryland Deathfest.

I do agree he's in a better band, Unearth is just too repetitive to be bearable to listen.
