”Nothing prepared me for such an intensive performance that was beyond freaking tight. Their energy was out of this world, stage antics second to none, sweating it out and getting the audience in a frenzy. That was just beautiful!”
- BeijingDaze about the concert at 2kolegas in Beijing 2011

(If You're In) Count Me Out was first released in conjunction with the 2012 Apocalypse tour in China. The process behind the song is somewhat unusual in terms of regular Black Snakes method. At the last minute, while Black Snakes were in Parachute Studio, a large portion of the text was rejected and a new one added. Roar Nilsen, from the Parachute Studio, criticized the structure and made the band aware of the potential that lay in improving the track. Thanks to Mr. Nilsen for bringing this to light. The song is about drugs and prostitution.
Recorded and produced by Roar Nilsen, Parachute Studio
Mixed by Øyvind R. Gundersen (Rumble In Rhodos / Do You Love Melena?)
Mastered by Christian Obermayer, Strype Audio

The Ballad Of Rat Miller a celebration of the great contrasts in human life. The song tells the true story of the mythological Rat Miller as he travels to China to confront his three inner demons: the good, the bad and the insane. The accompanying music video is very much influenced by the latter of these.
