Snakebite started up in 2012 under the name named Sexx Action, however, they were disappointed by the divergence occurring throughout the band.
After regrouping, their first try at putting something together under the new name Snakebite proved to be very difficult due to issues with an ex bandmate. Not letting that discourage them, the 3 founding members, Wagner, Fischer and LaCroix forged ahead and kept the ball rolling without worry.
In early 2013, they released a demo via Maniac Attack Records in limited numbers which was quickly sold out. Fast forward to 2014 when the 3 original members started working on their first album, “Princess of Pain”. Each of them contributed to the song writing which offered a wide variety of songs and sounds. This album was recorded and mixed by Lacuna Coil’s Dennis Koehne and was released in 2015.
In 2016, they added new member Chris Van Kough (guitar). Since then, they have been touring abroad and all over Germany.
On May 4, 2018, their upcoming album, “Rise of the Snake” will be released as a cd and as a vinyl album via Maniac Attack Records. The lineup of : Dominik Wagner (vocals/guitar), Julian Fischer (drums), Alex LaCroix (bass), andChris Van Kough (guitar) seems to be the winning pairing. These guys have a great sound and they rock hard!
