Since Public Serpents first entered the scene in 2008 with their debut album “The Feeding Of The Fortune 5000”, they’ve appeared on splits with bands UpperDowner and recent Fat Wreck Chords signee Escape From The Zoo, receiving critical acclaim in the worldwide crack-rock-steady scene.
After dealing with a succession of professional and personal setbacks over the last decade, including incarceration, homelessness, and the end of his marriage, Skwert says of the 13 tracks that make up the new album: “My whole life is invested in this. Artistically, physically and mentally, I’d probably die without it… there literally would be no point in living at this point.”
2022 saw Public Serpents touring with some incredible bands like The Suicide Machines, Escape From The Zoo, and Catbite in cities across America before shipping out to Europe for a month long tour over seas, playing venues ranging from the world-renowned Manchester Punk Festival to a Hungarian bomb shelter under the streets of Budapest.
