Snake Island! calls it quits; UO x HN with Marcey Yates and AZP; Bonehart Flannigan album release tonight

Omaha rock band Snake Island! announced yesterday that their time as a band is effectively at an end.

“We are no longer booking shows and our psychedelic journey can be considered complete. Thanks for the good times …” the band posted to its Facebook page.

The band has cancelled at least one show in Sioux City due to a wrist injury sustained by guitarist Allan Schleich.

The quartet has played together for four years, releasing a self-titled EP in 2012 and an LP, Evil Music, last year. Both releases are available on Snake Island’s Bandcamp page.
