SPIDER ROCKETS Announce Short US Run Supporting Puddle Of Mudd, Saving Abel and Tantric

New Jersey’s Spider Rockets released their fifth full-length album Along Came A Spider, at the end of January via P-Dog Records.  The album is available for purchase HERE.

In support of the album, Spider Rockets are pleased to announce a short US tour alongside Puddle of Mudd, Saving Abel and Tantric.  The band also has two headline dates scheduled and an appearance at the Cancer Can Rock benefit show in Amityville, NY. A complete list of dates can be found below.

Check out the lyric video for “Sick” HERE:

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.

Spider Rockets has toured with Pop Evil, Trapt, and Saliva and has opened for the likes of Papa Roach, Steel Panther and others. The group has toured throughout the USA and has also performed in Europe.  Lead singer, Helena Cos, and guitarist, Johnny Nap, originally started as a duo with an electronic rhythm section playing dive bars in New Jersey and New York City where they cranked out crowd favorites from AC/DC and Judas Priest to Guns n’ Roses and Metallica while testing the waters with original material.
