SNAILS The Shell Album Art

The vomit has arrived. We’ve been excitedly waiting for SNAILS debut album The Shell, and now it’s here in all its glory. The 12-track project marks a monumental moment in the vomitstep pioneer’s career as he also just wrapped up his biggest headline show to date.

We had the pleasure of presenting SNAILS’ one-day Sluggtopia festival at Red Rocks where he played out the full album for the first time in addition to unveiling his absolutely insane new stage design he’s bring on tour (see Red Rocks recap here). The Shell builds on his forward-thinking, signature sound bringing on collaborations from Collie BuddzWaka Flocka FlameNGHTMREBig GiganticMAX, HYTYDForeign BeggarsSarah HudsonDion TimmerKLP, Liam Cormier (of the band Cancer Bats), Travis Richter (of band From First To Last).

SNAILS has been a one-of-a-kind artist from day one. Now he’s crafted a project that’s just as wild as you could ever imagine from the Montreal-based producer that truly pushes the limits of sound design. His epic drops and unique gargling synths are as prevalent as ever. We hear SNAILS evolve his song structure involving a diverse cast of collaborators while keeping his out-of-this world production at the forefront of each track. Be sure to catch him on tour (dates below) and enjoy!

[PREMIERE] SNAILS & Pegboard Nerds - Deep In The Night (Barely Alive Remix) : Heavy Dubstep

SNAILS - Deep In The Night (Barely Alive Remix) [Cover Art]

Barely Alive keeps the music coming with an official remix of SNAILS and Pegboard Nerds' heavy collaboration "Deep In The Night". This release follows the Barely Alive's heavy dubstep single "CA$H" on OWSLA and they keep the bass filth rolling with their latest release via Monstercat.

Barely Alive transforms the vomitstep weapon into a dubstep banger that's surrounded by cinematic drums, high-pitched bells and metallic bass synths that blend in perfectly with the original track's gargling lead synth. "Deep In The Night" has also received the remix treatment from talented acts Dion Timmer and Muzzy so be sure to check their takes on the song as well. Listen to the premiere of Barely Alive's heavy remix of "Deep In The Night" by SNAILS and Pegboard Nerds below. Enjoy!

SNAILS' Song Makes Hilarious Appearance In New M. Night Shyamalan Movie 'Split' [Video]

Snails Hedwig side by side

So I saw on Twitter that TSIS regular SNAILS has a song in the new M. Night Shyamalan movie titled Split. Shyamalan is the same director responsible for The Village, The Sixth Sense, etc. Well I saw the movie this weekend and the part with the SNAILS' song is hilarious.

We tried finding the clip online but with no luck, until just now, YourEDM posted what looks like a a cell phone video from someone at the movies haha, so we had to include. 

After seeing the movie, it makes perfect sense that the track would appear where it did as they wanted to find the most ridiculous sounding song to show how insane the main character is. It's a pretty epic scene showing the star of the movie play a song on his CD player, which happens to be playing SNAILS' single "FROGBASS". He then does what we will call the "Frogbass dance" that's as wild as the song is. It couldn't be more fitting and incredible seeing an artist we've been supporting since day one get such a huge placement in a major feature film. Check out the clip below before it gets taken down from the internet. 

We would highly recommend seeing this movie in theaters as well, easily one of the best thrillers we'd seen in years. Enjoy!
