After years spent grinding in the ever-dimming lights of Hollywood, vocalist Johnny Skulls and guitarist Dax Dabs opened their eyes and realized what so many never do: ”why the f*ck are we trying to do it THEIR way?” At that moment, what once felt so distorted and lacking in its luster was now crystal clear. And with nothing but the open road and their own volition staring back at them, the two joined forces after years of friendship and returned to where it all started.
In 2019, the duo found their way back home to Boston and began working relentlessly on a new project: Above Snakes. They would soon partner with producer Kile Odell (FOZZY, THROUGH FIRE, AWAKE AT LAST) and in the summer of 2020, the band released their debut track “Adrenaline”, which quickly earned a spot on PANDORA'S "NEW ROCK NOW" alongside PAPA ROACH, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, & I-PREVAIL incluiding Spotify placements from the likes of LOUDWIRE , FEARLESS RECORDS, & HOPELESS RECORDS.
“Adrenaline” was soon followed by their next single “Never Alone”, with a massive placement on SPOTIFY'S "ROCK HARD" playlist alongside BRING ME THE HORIZON, ARCHITECTS, & SEETHER and has over 126,000 streams and over 110,000 views on youtube to date.
In February of 2021 the third single “I Feel Bad” premiered with SLIPKNOT'S KNOTFEST.COM, and to date has over 100,000 views on Youtube. Above Snakes are currently back in the studio with Kile Odell to complete their debut full-length record.
