After years of sorting and scratching through the dense bush known as the music industry, The Snips have decided to pick up the clippers and crop their own path. On August 14th, 2012 The Snips released their latest and highly anticipated new record “Highs Of Low” on Rival Party Records. Three years removed from the release of 2009's Blackouts EP, the band has sonically managed to completely shake things up. In the esoteric fashion that is inherently present within The Snips camp, the band has stepped away from the footprints of their contemporaries and relocated themselves in a much dirtier and unpolished place. With the guidance of Dan Weston (City and Colour, Attack In Black, Living With Lions) the band yet again has come up with a fresh treat in a stale cupboard. Ricky Pridmore (vocals), Brent Fulop (drums), Barty Breton (bass) and marble rye axe-men Tone Ventresca and Chris Accursi are more than pumped to ditch the conventional record release plan and do things on their own terms.
Back after touring a month through Europe, The Snips will be laying some ground work in their own territory. With upcoming Canadian and American tours, a plethora of music videos, endless Blogs, Vlogs and contests (unless you live under a rock) you’re bound to hear/see/smell/feel The Snips becoming one of your favorite bands.
