Hot Snakes are a post-hardcore band led by Rick Froberg and John Reis, formed in 1999 in San Diego, California. Reis and Froberg had previously performed together in Pitchfork and Drive Like Jehu, after which Reis had found international success with Rocket from the Crypt. Hot Snakes disbanded in 2005 but reunited in 2011. Although they share musical similarities with members' previous outfits, Hot Snakes have a sound that is much more primal than that of Pitchfork, Drive Like Jehu or even Rocket from the Crypt. Reis and Froberg were also heavily influenced by bands such as: Fugazi, At The Drive-In, Alexisonfire and The Get Up Kids, and these influences gave Hot Snakes a distinctive sound that has been described by one critic as "hardcore indie punk." The band's recordings and merchandise were conducted in a "do it yourself" manner, with Froberg providing all of the artwork and Reis releasing the material via his Swami Records label. Highly recommended.

Automatic Midnight, Hot Snakes’ first studio album, originally came out in 2000. Both the band and the album began as a "side project" for John Reis in June 1999, during time off from his main band Rocket From the Crypt. Reis wrote and recorded a batch of songs in San Diego with Delta 72 drummer Jason Kourkounis. To provide vocals for the tracks Reis called in Rick Froberg, whom he had played with in Pitchfork and Drive Like Jehu from 1986 to 1995. Most of the material from these sessions was used to create Automatic Midnight, which became the first release for Reis' newly formed Swami Records label (later issued through record label "Sub Pop"). The band’s sound represented a return to the unrealized past of its members: direct, simple and short punk rock while still maintaining the dense and turbulent character of the members’ previous work. In April or May of 2000, Hot Snakes added bassist Gar Wood, found their live sound and established themselves as primo, down-stroke warlords.
