Snails Into The Light Art

Snails has just hit us with a triple-header of exciting news today. Ahead of his exciting debut album, he's shared the lead single, “Into The Light” featuring Sarah Hudson. He's also shared an awesome teaser trailer for his upcoming debut album, The Shell in addition to announcing his upcoming tour.

The cryptic teaser video features what appears to be skeletal warriors and an undead king donning hooded armor who tells us “Bow down to your king. Recognize the power. Your king is back.” Afterwards a distorted robotic voice pleads, “We need the shell,” before the video flashes the text “The Album Is Coming.” For now, this nightmarish teaser is almost all we have to go on, but fortunately for us, Snails has just released the first single off the project.

"Into The Light" brings vocals from Sarah Hudson, who has written for the likes of Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj. Hudson’s powerful vocals combine with symphonic chords and colorful arpeggios before building up for the impeding vomitstep drop. Snails breaks it down with his signature vocal synth sound and quickly transitions to and from a double-time section with energetic percussion, chopping the vocals in between.

Finally, Snails has also announced The Shell Tour: Enter Slugz City Edition in support of the album. This tour will have all-new stage production deemed “The Shell” with a 150K watt sound system. Snails is bringing a star-studded support lineup with him including 12th Planet, Bro Safari, Downlink b2b Space Laces, SAYMYNAME,  Squnto and Boogie T. The tour begins this winter and will be making stops in Seattle, San Francisco, Dallas, and Atlanta, with more dates at locations around the world to be announced. Tickets will be available here with presale code "shell". Before then, you can catch him with NGHTMRE, JOYRYDE, and more at Red Rocks for Sluggtopia. Enjoy!
