San Diego's influential post-hardcore all-stars Hot Snakes – boasting members of Pitchfork, Rocket From the Crypt, Drive Like Jehu, Earthless, Obits, Burning Brides, OFF!, The Delta 72, and more – released three of Sub Pop's favorite rock records of the past 20 years: Automatic Midnight, Suicide Invoice, and Audit in Progress. All three were originally issued on Swami Records, with art by singer/guitarist and visual artist Rick Froberg. As we await the somewhat-later-in-2018 release of their first new album since 2004, the label is pleased to reissue this trio of classics back on vinyl. Audit in Progress is Hot Snakes' third studio album and last to date, originally released in 2004. It finds the band doing what they do best, churning out fast and explosive songs with understated dynamics and plenty of character. By 2005 Hot Snakes was no more, however, they would reconvene in 2011 for some live dates.
