Spider Rockets To Release Long-Awaited New Album, January 26th

New Jersey’s Spider Rockets are set to release their fifth full-length album ‘Along Came A Spider,’ January 26th via P-Dog Records. Today, the artwork and track listing have been revealed. Check out the lyric video for the first single entitled “Sick” HERE. The album will be available for pre-order next week!

“We have always done things our way and ‘Along Came A Spider’ continues that tradition. It’s our own brand of rock that evolves, twists and turns regardless of what the current trend is generating,” says lead singer, Helena Cos.

Spider Rockets hit the studio for their fifth full-length release, this time with producer Dan Malsch (Framing Hanley, Tantric, and Doro). ‘Along Came A Spider’ takes the group’s songwriting philosophy one step further with lush production coupled with the group’s distinct brand of unapologetic in-your-face sound and attitude.

Spider Rockets’ previous release, ‘Bitten,’ was named one of the Top 10 Hard Rock Albums of 2012 by MetalOdyssey.com. On rock radio cage matches, Spider Rockets triumphed over respectable heavy hitters like Five Finger Death Punch, Pennywise, Hellyeah, and others. Also, the group’s track, "Going Down," became WWE darling, Charlotte Flair's (daughter of the legendary Ric Flair), walk-out and victory theme song during her 2014 season.

‘Along Came A Spider’ Track Listing:
1. Rip Your Heart Out
2. Love it When You’re Wrong
3. Adore
4. Drama Gore
5. Hey Hey
6. Burn
7. At Odds
8. Heartbreaker
9. Come to Me
10. Losing It
11. Sick

 
New Jersey Natives Release Lyric Video "Sick"

Spider Rockets Returns to Make You “Sick”

After a five-year wait, New Jersey’s Spider Rockets are at long last rolling out the lyric video to support their new single, “Sick.” The single is from the group’s upcoming full album release, Along Came A Spider, due out early 2018.

Watch the exclusive premiere of the lyric video via Pop Matters HERE.

The new lyric video is a bit of a departure from the typical After Effects, graphics-driven lyric video flooding the current scene. “We wanted to keep it organic, flowing, and to reflect the theme of the actual song,” reveals lead singer, Helena Cos. The video frames a scene set on a bar top where an unwilling female hand is passing handwritten notes (the song’s lyrics) to a captive audience of one - a male hand on the receiving end. Suffice it to say the evening doesn’t go very well for the bar fly looking for a hookup. “It was all shot in a single take with no edits,” adds guitarist, John Nap. “This made the shoot really fun, but we definitely have new respect for bands that do this kind of stuff. It’s really hard to get all the action just right without screwing something up and then fixing it in post!”

The band’s new album is the long-awaited follow up to 2012’s, Bitten, which MetalOdyssey.com named as one of their Top 10 Hard Rock Albums of the year. Bitten also spawned the single “Going Down”, which was adopted by Charlotte Flair of the WWE (daughter to wrestling icon, Ric Flair) as her introduction and victory theme song for much of 2014.

“Sick,” as well as the rest of the new material, follows in the footsteps of Spider Rockets’ previous album - delivering their brand of lean and mean, straight-ahead rock that has earned them their no-nonsense reputation. When asked why “Sick” was chosen to mark their return, Helena confessed - “Keeping angry feelings bottled up inside rarely works for us. So, instead, we share them in a song. Unicorns and rainbows? Hell no! We’re here to kick your ass and make you sick.”

The group is currently planning some live dates for the New Year, so keep your eyes open, especially in the northeastern United States. Spider Rockets’ “Sick” will be available for download via most online music sites tomorrow, Friday, December 8th.

 
SPIDER ROCKETS Debut Lyric Video For “Break”

Song Taken From Band’s Latest Release Bitten

Everyone has been Bitten by the infectious sounds of New Jersey’s SPIDER ROCKETS. The album has received some real love from press and made Top Adds on the CMJ Metal charts. At secondary market active rock, SPIDER ROCKETS triumphed over respectable heavy hitters like Five Finger Death Punch, Pennywise, Hellyeah and other kick-ass contenders. Since the release of Bitten, the group has toured with Trapt, opened for the likes of Papa Roach, Steel Panther, Saigon Kick, and their track, "Going Down," was picked up by the WWE and served as wrestler Charlotte Flair's entrance AND victory theme for 2 quarters of 2014.

Now the band is pleased to debut their FIRST EVER lyric video for the song “Break.” For the concept, the band wanted to make this a fun video to watch and was drawn to powerful and dramatic pulp art from the 1930's through the early 1960s. The video was created and directed by Jason Nappi and Roman Fernandez.

"People on the verge, mummies, aliens, monsters and spiders -- what's not to like?” says frontwoman Helena Cos. Check out the video HERE!

Bitten is available for purchase via iTunes and Amazon.

SPIDER ROCKETS combines contemporary loud rock with classic rock elements. The New Jersey based band travels the sonic spectrum from dark and seductive to energetic to angry, with a dynamic live show and scream-along anthems. Interestingly enough for a band called SPIDER ROCKETS, it is a bit strange that members of the band are afraid of spiders.… Although, it seems that they may be starting to overcome their fear based on the title of their album, Bitten.

On Bitten, the band worked once again with producer Eric Rachel in New Jersey. In South Florida, Ryan Sambrook provided additional production and Zach Ziskin mixed the album. From both a compositional and performance standpoint, Bitten is the group’s strongest work to date. Long before completion of the record, an early rendition of one stand-out track “Scream,” garnered over 35,000 hits on YouTube without any promotional efforts and no official release.
 
SPIDER ROCKETS JOIN SALIVA IN OCTOBER

SPIDER ROCKETS JOIN SALIVA IN OCTOBER

Spider Rockets release tour dates: Oct 2nd through Oct 11

A week after releasing their first official video for "Going Down", Spider Rockets will hit the road with Saliva in the Midwest and the south. "We haven't been on the road since our runs with Trapt earlier this spring," admits lead singer, Helena Cos; "...but we haven't visited the south in at least a couple of years! So that, along with Saliva being cool enough to share the stage with us is pretty awesome."

Spider Rockets has a new stage show consisting of various backdrops, a smoldering rocket ship, probing searchlight, whips, megaphone and a mannequin head. "The rocket ship will be a work in progress, hopefully we won't need to abort any missions!" jokes John Nap, the band's guitarist. "But the real challenge as an opening band has been coming up with staging that won't interfere with the headliner's space; one that is modular enough to adjust from venue to venue, but that also packs light... And I believe we've found it." John refers to a series self-standing vertical, retractable banners or scrims (neither, really) that can be extended, shortened, and rearranged depending on the size and configuration of the venue's stage. Bassist, Greg Manning, adds: "We just hope we don't end up with a 'Stone Henge' situation!"

The group also may bring along their four legged roadie/security guard, Lemmy, a 18 pound Dachshund with a bad attitude and a fierce appetite; "that little shit always sniffs out where I hide my meatball sub in the van," bitches drummer, Dan Prestup.

Confirmed tour dates include:

October 2 Harley Davidson Biketown (Austintown, OH) w/ SALIVA

October 3 Jonny's Roadhouse (Aurora, IN) w/ SALIVA

October 4 Beale Street Live (Indianapolis, IN) w/ SALIVA

October 5 Diesel Concert Lounge (Chesterfield, MI) w/ SALIVA

October 6 Centerstage Bar & Grill (Kokomo, IN) w/ SALIVA

October 8 Blackstock (Knoxville, TN) w/ SALIVA

October 9 Limelight (Nashville, TN) w/ SALIVA

October 10 Club Inferno (Scottsboro, AL) w/ SALIVA

October 11 Longbranch (Raleigh, NC) w/ SALIVA

October 18 The Saint (Asbury Park, NJ)

The tour is in support of the band's current release, "Bitten," produced in the band's home state of New Jersey as well as Florida.

“Going Down,” the new video from the album can be seen on the band’s official YouTube page HERE.

 
SPIDER ROCKETS RELEASE THEIR FIRST OFFICIAL VIDEO, "GOING DOWN," TODAY

Sept 13, 2013

SPIDER ROCKETS RELEASE THEIR FIRST OFFICIAL VIDEO, "GOING DOWN," TODAY.

The video release marks new upcoming tour dates for Spider Rockets

After their first foray into video land with “Scream” (a montage of studio production footage and live clips from the group’s dates on Van’s Warped Tour) two years ago, Spider Rockets has picked today, Friday the 13th to release “Going Down.” “You know that something’s going down on Friday the 13th…. It might as well be us!” jokes singer, Helena Cos. The song lyrics play off the sexual and hostile interpretations suggested by the track’s title, often walking a very fine line between the two. “I wanted the listeners to make up their own minds which way I’m leaning when I’m singing, ‘When you come here you’re going down’,” admits Helena.

The video weaves around vintage black and white footage to add a bit of levity into what is otherwise far from a funny song. This idea was inspired by videos from other legendary rock bands like Ratt’s “You’re in Love,” Iron Maiden’s “Run to the Hills,” and Metallica’s “One,” the latter’s infusion of black and white clips being arguably less humorous.

“We were also on a budget and knew we’d have to fill some frames,” admits guitarist John Nap, “and it’s amazing how much they were asking us to pay for some other common rights ‘free’ footage that never made the video, like clips of Betty Boop and Popeye!”

“Going Down” can be seen starting today on the band’s official YouTube page.
