Spiders Get Webbed Up With Uncle Acid


New EP and tour for Swedes

Sprung out of Gothenburg, Sweden, the four piece rock-outfit Spiders has since their critically acclaimed debut album Flashpoint been one of the hardest touring bands in the business. Their MC5-inspired glampunk honours rock history in their own unique way and has taken the band multiple mile after mile around the globe, both as a headliner and as support for Kvelertak, Metallica and the friends from Graveyard.

A while back they got confirmed to support Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats on their massive European tour that kicks off in Paris on the 14th of October and makes a total of 34 stops around Europe during a period of six weeks.
Just in time for the tour, the band also announced a brand new EP. The 3-track EP is named Why Don´t You and is released both digitally and as a limited 10” vinyl.

Recorded by the infamous Niels Nielsen (Dead Soul, Ghost) it sticks with you from the crucial first listen.

Their latest full-length album Shake Electric got some killer reviews and was nominated for both a Swedish Grammy and a P3-Gold award (hosted by Sveriges Radio, equivalent to the BBC).

”We´ve had a great summer filled with festivals and to finish the tour on our home ground at Liseberg was nothing less than amazing. But that´s ancient history now, we still got an aching urge for touring. And we honestly cannot think of a better way than to join Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats. In the words of ABBA – Watch Out!” – Spiders
