Californian post-hardcore pioneers Hot Snakes have released a new single, Checkmate.

The single, which is available on digital streaming platforms, will also be available as a limited-edition 7" at the band's UK gigs this December. The 7" will also include an exclusive track in the shape of Not In Time.

Hot Snakes vocalist Rick Froberg says: "Checkmate is big, fatty content freshly extruded from the Hot Snakes sausage machine. Same ingredients, new flav."
