Spider Announce New Single “Wormhole”
Out Friday July 28th
Fiercely independent DIY Long Beach, California, punk collective Spider announce their highly anticipated next single “Wormhole.”
“Spider is a punk rock juggernaut.” – Jersey Beat
“LA classic punk rock with an unruly hardcore tinge” – Outburn
“Rocket-fueled sonics careen with wild abandon” – The Big Takeover
“Wormhole” is a reference to the push and pull – the birth and death of cultural hegemony happening in real time and a person’s attempt to process society’s values, norms, ideas, expectations, and worldviews in the flurry of the chaos.
“Wormhole” will be released on all digital streaming platforms July 28, 2023 via CPYRT CNTRL RCRDS (pronounced Copyright Control Records), co-produced by the band and former Agent Orange member Dave Klein. This is Spider’s first new music since their Energy Gone Wrong (EP) released in 2019.
As they forge their path, the band’s relentless drive thrives in a DIY environment. Spider’s “do it yourself” work ethic has enabled them to share the stage with heavy hitters such as Descendents, The Bronx, GBH, Pennywise, The Hives and Circle Jerks and has earned them spots on some of the biggest music festivals around the world including Riot Fest (US), Punk Rock Bowling Festival (US), It’s Not Dead Fest (US), Rebellion Festival (UK), Back To Future Festival (Germany), Music Tastes Good Festival (US), Punk Rock Holiday Festival (Slovenia), Brakrock Festival (Belgium), Bay Fest (Italy), and The Bash Festival (US).
Highlighting their collective ear for high energy music, Spider’s sound has also resonated with music supervisors leading to secured placements in tv shows such as “Letterkenny” (hulu) and actions sports films such as “Powell-Peralta Skateboard Stories Presents: Bucky Lasek” and “All In Lifestyles.”
Reviewing a recent live show – The Punk Site reported the performance was “a relentless barrage of skilled sonic power that rides the thin line between chaos and order.”
This sentiment is echoed by these parting words from Spider “we thrive in a live environment, we live to perform and make sure whoever comes to a show, feels like it’s time well spent.”
