Fan-filmed video footage of the reunited lineup of the legendary Santa Barbara metal/punk rock hybrid SNOT — featuring original members Mikey Doling (guitar), John "Tumor" Fahnestock (bass), Jamie Miller (drums) and Sonny Mayo (guitar) along with the group's latest addition, former DIVINE HERESY vocalist Tommy Cummings (a.k.a. Tommy Vext) — performing a new song titled "Coulda Shoulda Woulda" on October 10, 2008 at the Key club in Hollywood, California can be viewed below (clip uploaded by "Bartnijssen"). A review of the concert can be found on ARTISTdirect.
SNOT was interviewed on the September 21, 2008 edition of Indie 103.1 FM's specialty metal program "Chaos with Full Metal Jackie". The show is now available for streaming at this location.
SNOT played its first show in 10 years on August 20, 2008 at Velvet Jones on State St. in Santa Barbara.
SNOT recently posted a new song, "The Band Plays On", on its official MySpace page.
The band has secured a deal with the TKO booking agency (BUCKCHERRY, FEAR FACTORY, HELMET, MOTÖRHEAD, MUDVAYNE, THE CULT) and plans to go into the studio this winter to record a new album for a summer 2009 release. In the meantime, SNOT will play a number of shows, including tours of the United States supporting DEVILDRIVER and MUDVAYNE.
SNOT disbanded in 1998 following the death of the group's lead singer, Lynn Strait. Lynn died in a car accident in December 1998, putting an end to a career that generated considerable promise but only one studio album, the 1997 Geffen Records release "Get Some". Also killed was the band's mascot Dobbs, Strait's dog who adorned the cover of SNOT's debut album. The band had been writing material for its sophomore CD and had completed 10 songs at the time of Strait's tragic passing. As a memorial to Strait, SNOT eventually decided to release those tracks, with lyrics and guest vocals provided by a host of stars from the alt-metal community. The resulting album, "Strait Up", was a fitting tribute from Strait's peers and friends, featuring members of LIMP BIZKIT, KORN, SLIPKNOT, SEVENDUST, (HED) P.E., COAL CHAMBER, SUGAR RAY, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, SOULFLY, and more.
