“After four years of great loss, love, and luck, we are returning with a new lineup, a new producer, a new sound, and two incredible new projects: A full-length CD, and an accompanying graphic novel. This is THE SPIDER HOLE as it was always meant to be. Darker. Heavier. Deeper. And weirder. Much, much weirder.” – The Spider Hole

ToTheMonsters Album Mockup

TO THE MONSTERS, our third full-length CD, is an ode to Halloween, weird fiction, and timeless horrors. Featuring eleven brand new tracks devoted to the spectrum of things that go bump in the night, this themed album is at turns whimsical, unsettling, and terrifying. TO THE MONSTERS is produced by rising legend Jeffrey Robens, Jr., and showcases a new direction for the band, one marked by heavier hooks, dark synthetic pulses, strange structural shifts, and unrestrained vocals.

TheSpiderHole square

A quartet with frequent guest musicians, The Spider Hole performs songs meant to stir brains and rattle bones. Based in sun-scorched Phoenix, AZ, the band started banging sounds together in the late nineties, and has steadily developed an aural stew that is partly rock, partly cabaret, partly blues, and partly goth. Influences include Tom Waits, Oingo Boingo, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Primus, The Pixies, Frank Zappa, The Doors, and your face when you taste something unexpected. New music is being prepped for a new full-length album called To the Monsters, due near the end of 2018.

Outer Glow (ex-I See Stars) Announce Debut EP “Lunar // Effect”

North Carolina metal outfit Outer Glow has announced their debut EP titled, Lunar // Effect, set to release June 30th. Formed in July of 2016 by Zach Johnson, the former I See Stars vocalist, the band has continuing to build their fanbase by releasing three singles, which are featured on their upcoming EP. After leaving I See Stars, Johnson commented, saying,

“I See Stars was a huge part of my life that I’ll never forget or regret. It truly was a dream come true to travel the world and play the tunes we wrote together. The end of my career with I See Stars at first was pretty rocky and it was hard for me not to be bitter, until I seen them play a show without me and saw how happy they were and I knew it was for the best. Outer Glow has been so amazing. It’s the first time I’ve ever had the freedom to express myself lyrically and emotionally and that’s something I’ve been waiting for my whole life. Every member of I See Stars is a composer as well, so sometimes writing songs got very emotional to people’s attachments to their art, with Outer Glow it just seems to click. Everybody is pretty good at letting go of ideas if it doesn’t pass the democracy of the band. Especially the song “Monsters” I wrote lyrically about struggles with growing up in a broken home and having negative traits of your parents or family. I personally didn’t grow up in a broken home but a lot of my best friends did and I’ve been around it and have seen how much of an influence it can have on people. I’m super excited for everybody to hear what the other guys and I from Outer Glow have put together for our EP, Lunar // Effect. We all put so much time and effort in composing this Ep and I’m beyond thrilled with how it turned out. To wrap things up I’d just like to thank everybody who has ever supported my music career including my friends and family and I See Stars. I love you all and wouldn’t be able to do what I do without you guys.”

Outer Glow are set to perform their CD release show on June 30th at The Blind Tiger in Greensboro, NC. Watch Outer Glow‘s latest single “Monsters” off the upcoming EP below.
