Snailmate, the Phoenix-based musical duo of Kalen Lander (singer/synths) and Bentley Money (drummer) who have a strong DIY-ethic and blend Synthpunk, Grindcore Pop and nerd Rap, will be releasing their new album, Stress Sandwich, on Oct. 6th, 2023 via Hairless Records.

Kalen Lander shares:

This album is a long time in the making, but it couldn’t have been finished any sooner. We had to tour the world, live through quarantine, get our hearts broken a couple times, go to therapy, get our cats, and Bentley had to literally CHANGE GENDERS before we were ready to stick the toothpick in this baby. Stress Sandwich has everything in it, and it is delicious!

The 10-song collection, which was produced by the duo, with Ari Leopold, at Lava Lake Studios (Phoenix), explores “themes of vulnerability, disappointment, and accepting art-making as a beautiful yet imperfect process.”   The album will be available in formats including vinyl, CD, cassettes, and the band’s “Stress Sauce” hot sauce (which won Phoenix Magazine’s 2021 Best Hot Sauce award).
