In a recent interview with Noisey, bassist Brian Cook (Russian Circles and These Arms Are Snakes, Sumac) gives hope to those of us who’ve been waiting for a Botch reunion.
When asked about a Botch reunion, Cook said:
“Seems to be the ongoing question. I have always said “never,” but I have now been instructed by the other dudes in the band to stop saying that. It’s funny because as opposed to These Arms are Snakes, Botch felt like total closure; we had our final run and it was a thing that we made a conscious decision to push. The other guys in the band felt like it ended too soon, which could be the case, I don’t know.
Regardless, I won’t say never anymore.”
Botch came up around the time of Coalesce and Cave In, and released two studio albums before calling it quits in 2002.
