Today Spider announced the details on their upcoming EP “Energy Gone Wrong” out July 26th (digitally) and Aug 9th (physical) on CPYRT CNTRL RCRDS.
The physical release is a limited edition 7” vinyl record offered in clear and white variants. The release features two original songs “Energy Gone Wrong” and “The Reeperbahn” plus a cover of Black Flag’s “Depression.”
Spider is – vocalist – Hector Martinez, guitarist – Karl Izumi, bassist – Jeff Abarta and drummer – Alf Silva.
The band is shaping some of the most visceral music of their career and it definitely shows if you have been following them over the years. The sound quality and passion for pure punk rock music is amplified with this new release. The new tracks are gritty, tough and show absolute determination to express the original punk sound and the Black Flag cover is one of the best that we have heard since the original.
This collection of new studio recordings captures the power of Spider’s kinetic live performance. Opening track, ”Energy Gone Wrong” offers a blistering modern existential anthem for a disaffected society followed by a sneering rendition of Black Flag’s nihilist punk classic “Depression.”
Inspired by the band’s first European tour and their stay in Hamburg Germany, “The Reeperbahn” captures the zeitgeist of St Pauli’s seedy entertainment district and the essence of tour life.
Since reforming 3 year ago, the band has been on the charge and playing music festivals around the world, Music Tastes Good Festival (US), It’s Not Dead Festival (US), Punk Rock Bowling (US), Rebellion Festival (UK), Back To Future Festival (DE), The Bash (US) plus shows with a variety of legendary punk heavy hitters including Descendents, GBH, Strung Out, CJ Ramone, The Weirdos, TSOL, Fear and The Casualties.
In support of “Energy Gone Wrong” Spider continues to perform around the world with dates in the US, UK and Europe.
