The third release by New Jersey’s own Spider Rockets, entitled ‘Ever After,’ has been picked up by three labels – Locomotive, Screaming Ferret and Ryko – who have just issued the album.
‘Ever After’ sees the group working once more with producer Martin Bisi (whose resume includes the likes of Dresden Dolls, Helmet and Sonic Youth) – who had produced Spider Rockets’ previous two releases, ‘Preview’ and ‘Flipped Off.’
"It’s really good to see our CD getting out there," says Spider Rockets’ frontwoman Helena Cos.
"Very cool that we are gonna be reaching more people."
Formed in the late 1990s and led by Cos, Spider Rockets’ sound can be described as ass-kickin’ hard modern rock meshing the grunge vox stylings of 7-Year Bitch with the radio rock sound of Velvet Revolver or Godsmack. Al Muzer from the Aquarian Weekly agrees with this assessment, by declaring "[Spider Rockets] continues to crank out the crunchiest, catchiest, most melodic, mean-riffed and caustic metal noize since L7 and 7-Year Bitch gave way to the likes of Sleater-Kinney." The band, which has shared the stage with some of rock’s most renowned names, will be supporting the issue of ‘Ever After’ with extensive touring.
