H2ZHW: Elliott Hitchcock From Battlesnake

In this episode we are hanging with Elliott Hitchcock from Aussie Rockers Battlesnake.

Battlesnake are a 7-piece from Sydney, Australia. They play heavily fantasy and sci-fi inspired retro hard and progressive rock and metal with a tongue in cheek demeanor. They released several singles, an EP in 2020 all leading up to the release of their self titled album in May

The lovechild of Queen, Tenacious D, Judas Priest and Gwar, Battlesnake are a unique beast within the Australian music scene. The cult metallers are knocking at the door of what all underdogs dream of but few ever experience.

Twelve months ago they were playing at a small, sweaty dive bar in Sydney on a Sunday night. Nine months ago they received the call that every child who has ever picked up a guitar has fantasized about. The voice on the other end of the line asked “How do you feel about opening for KISS?” Fortunately for Battlesnake, after thousands of hours, blood sweat and beers, this was a call they had been prepared for. Their answer; “A hometown show at Qudos Bank Arena on the last ever Kiss tour, yeah let us check our diary!” Needless to say they rocked the house and made many a new fan!

Fast forward six months from the thunderous reception they received from the KISS crowd, Battlesnake have now toured Australia with The Smashing Pumpkins, Jane’s Addiction and Amyl & The Sniffers. All of this in the span of 12 months

Elliot sits down with us to recap The World Is A Vampire Festival run, talk about the new album as well as the future for the band
