Formed tangentially from two of Ireland's most popular alternative rock bands Adebisi Shank & BATS. Vin McCreith and Rupert Morris have been experimenting and developing Speed Of Snakes for several years. A rich blend of Vin's synth-electronic production mastery and Rupert's vocal and lyrical stylings has created a unique sound that trespasses on the realms of dance, synthwave, pop and rock all wrapped up in an epic science fiction concept.
"Backbone of Night" is the first single from their debut album 'SPEED OF SNAKES'.
An older man ready to end it all and a runaway bride find each other in this unlikely love story. Don't just chalk it up as a sweet/morbid Harold & Maude homage, since the jilted groom makes a very dramatic re-entrance that potentially ruins everything.
