6131 RECORDS TO RELEASE SILVER SNAKES / SOUVENIRS SPLIT EP IN JANUARY 2013 -Both bands touring together in California in December

The art of the split release has all but been lost in recent years, or so it seems. Yes, some collaborative efforts have surfaced that feel like tandem attacks on the senses, but by and large most have felt haphazard at best. Leave it to SILVER SNAKES and SOUVENIRS, both bands that harken back to the great music of the ’90s in their own ways, to revitalize the craft of the split so widely loved in that decade. Since forming in 2010, Los Angeles, CA based band SILVER SNAKES have been offering a refreshing take on the sound first championed by the likes of At The Drive-In and Quicksand. Their latest full length, ‘Pictures Of A Floating World’ was produced by Rx Bandits’s Steve Choi / mixed by No Motiv’s Roger Camero and saw a vinyl release via Animal Style Records earlier this year. With recent tours alongside Defeater, Rotting Out, and Sainthood Reps, SILVER SNAKES continue to prove their appeal defies classification. Relative newcomers SOUVENIRS, hailing from Carpinteria, CA, have wasted no time getting to work on letting as many people hear their band as possible. Already during their short existence, they have undertaken two lengthy full U.S. coast-to-coast tours, plus numerous regional jaunts, including a string of dates recently in Canada. Somewhere in their hectic schedule, SOUVENIRS managed to record the EP ‘Tired of Defending You’ for 6131 Records with Jack Shirley (Joyce Manor, Whirr), putting a contemporary spin on the sound originated by bands like Mineral, Knapsack, and Pavement. On January 15th, 2013, 6131 Records will release the ‘Winter Songs’ split from SILVER SNAKES and SOUVENIRS, recalling the great, perfectly paired releases from the likes of Texas Is The Reason & The Promise Ring, The Get Up Kids & Braid, and At The Drive-In & Burning Airlines, to name a few. Available on 7″ vinyl and via digital outlets worldwide, ‘Winter Songs’ will be a split not to be missed. A limited pre-release version of the split EP will be available from the bands on their upcoming California tour together, taking place in December (dates below).
