Fresh off the release of the third and final edition of his wildly popular Slime Time EP series, SNAILS is back with more music and the biggest announcement of his career to date.
Out now is his new single “Alive” feat. Craig Mabbitt of popular American rock band Escape the Fate. This will also serve as the lead single to HELIX, his forthcoming, highly-anticipated LP dropping later this summer.
“Alive” is the first single of my upcoming new album HELIX. Coming from a Metal – screamo background, I wanted to hit hard with this one and show this influence in my life into this song. The idea is to mix a big festival anthem with an intense and energetic SNAILS signature bassline. This upcoming album blends many different genres that made me become who I am as an artist and sound designer today. With the catchy hook from Craig Mabbitt (lead singer of Escape The Fate), the melodic aspect and my soundscape, “ALIVE” is here to mark the beginning of HELIX in a powerful way. The intense chord melodies bring the listener into the new world of SNAILS and tease the direction of the whole body of work. – Snails
Despite being a superstar in the electronic music scene, Snails has always committed himself towards innovation and pushing the boundaries of his skills. “Alive” is everything fans have come to love about Snails.. with a little extra. Mixing the explosive elements of his signature bass style with the raw, emotional offerings of screamo, “Alive” is something entirely new from Snails. An element of ‘old school’ meets ‘new school’ is on full display as the Montreal-native flexes both the creativity and ingenuity that has made him a household name.
Montreal native, SNAILS, has cemented himself as a leading figure in bass music. Father of his own sub-genre, SNAILS’ Vomitstep embraces trap rhythms & off-kilter sound design, curating an original form of dance music.
His debut album & first-full production tour, THE SHELL (2017), was greeted with widespread critical acclaim. THE SHELL TOUR visited 37 U.S. cities in 45 days & launched SNAILS sold-out Red Rocks concert “SLUGGTOPIA.” The artist has released over 35 singles, surpassed 130 million streams & delivered over 450 international performances; gracing renowned EDM stages at Coachella, EDC, Tomorrowland, Bonnaroo & more.
In 2018, SNAILS continued to push boundaries with the launch of his own SLUGZ MUSIC label. Notable releases include: SLIMEAGGEDON EP (2018), WORLD OF SLIME (2019). With no intention of slowing down, SNAILS kicked off 2020 with SVDDEN DEATH on latest release “Deathmatch,” which has received support from some of the biggest names in EDM.
