“Too Many” is a third single promoting the 4th double Snakedoctors album „Four and a half”, both out on the 27th of May. This song has two versions. On the red cd – more on the new wave side – there’s a version mixed at Abbey Road Studios and mastered in Metropolis Studios. The single version comes from the black album – the grungy one. That version was mixed and mastered by Dawid Gorgolewski at Osso Studio in Gdańsk. It features US based artist Christine Corless. It’s one of the band’s definite favorites and has been played at live show since last year’s summer. It’s a song about difficult life issues that may arrive. Typical for grunge. The version with Christine makes that dark song much nicer. There’s a video along with the song. It was made in Ukraine and in Gdansk, PL. Most of scenes were filmed near Zhytomyr with talented Helen Thomson who comes from that part of Ukraine. There are also a few Snakedoctors live shows scenes in it.
About Snakedoctors: Snakedoctors are four friends who started the band in Gdansk, Poland in May of 2020. Since then they released eighteen singles (including a Christmas special and a song in Czech under name Jiri Blaha & Framuga Boys) and three albums: „Obligation”, „Joy Free Bowl” and „Mellow Joy”. Their biggest hit single so far – „Close That Door” has been a number one for over 30 weeks in Poland at Radio Olsztyn Top 40 and also at Radio Ostrowiec Top 20. “Crime Story” reached number two at Radio Ostrowiec Top 20.

All singles charted at Poland iTunes Rock Top 100 (many of them reached number one), one of the indie radio charts in the UK (including three number ones – „A Song”, „Tinder Girl” and “Crime Story”) and other radio charts in the US, Columbia, Ecuador and Peru.
Snakedoctors songs get the airplay in many countries worldwide and on 4 continents. The same applies to reviews that their albums and singles get.
Their upcoming fourth double album „Four and a half” is out in May. The album is officially supported by two radio stations in Poland – Radio Olsztyn and Radio Tczew. The songs on both cds will be very diverse. On the first one there are songs influenced heavily by new wave, dark wave, post-punk and shoegaze. And the second one is definitely on the grunge side. As before the band managed to get to co-operate with many well known producers.
That includes not only the regulars from Abbey Road Studios (Chris Bolster) and Metropolis Studios (Andy “Hippy” Baldwin”) but also – Joe Gibb who is well known for his work with Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Kinks, Jane’s Addiction, Stone Roses and The Mission and Kevin Paul who worked with Depeche Mode and the Kinks and also with Yazoo, Erasure and David Bowie.
Another producer involved in making one of the songs is Matt Gerhard working closely among many with the band Spoon. Also the vocalist and guitarist’s friend – Corey Alley (Hobbit Hole Records) will appear on the album. We will also have a few female vocalists appear in songs.
There are also three remixes of album songs – two of them were made in Vancouver, Canada and another one was done by Wojciech the band member, the one who used to play in bands in the US during his college years.
As they say – they play music because it’s fun. It’s an indie band releasing their music on indie label Case Studio. Band’s albums are distributed by MyMusic.
