The Pink Spiders at Cattivo
Don't Let the Scene Go Down on Me! Collective presents...

The Pink Spiders
Few bands have been able to cash in on their bad habits, dirty minds and questionable life choices quite like power-pop band THE PINK SPIDERS. The band, made up of members Matt Friction (Vocals, Guitar), JoCo (Bass) and Joey B-Side (Drums) have gained almost as much notoriety for their exploits, attitude and iconic look, as they have for the catchy and explosive sound they generate.

The band had been enjoying a brief hiatus until a wildly successful pop-up show in late 2016 celebrating the ten year anniversary of 2006s Teenage Graffiti LP laid the framework for an auspicious future and another full length record. Pre-orders for that album, titled Mutations, have begun and the 12 pink vinyl is set for release July 31, 2018 on Mean Buzz Records.

This newest record, tracked and mixed in the bands hometown of Nashville, TN, is eleven songs of power-pop perfection recalling the sweet hooks and blistering pace of the SPIDERS second LP Teenage Graffiti. Lead singles Black Dagger, I Cant Get Down Without You, Mutations and Capital F will each debut music videos in Summer 2018 and the band is setting off for a nationwide tour in August to celebrate the release.

Infamy and chaos have followed THE PINK SPIDERS since they first stormed onto the Nashville music scene in 2004 with their self-released debut EP The Pink Spiders Are Taking Over. It was that notoriety that translated into immediate results, as the band signed to their first indie deal less than 6 months after forming. The guys quickly generated a big buzz with their 2005 indie label release Hot Pink, an infectious dose of dark pop detailing fast getaways and cheap thrills.

Less than three weeks after the Hot Pink release, and in the midst of a nationwide tour, the band found themselves at the center of a major-label bidding war. THE PINK SPIDERS landed a deal with Geffen Records, and in short order released their highly praised major label debut, Teenage Graffiti. Produced by hit-maker and legendary frontman of THE CARS, Ric Ocasek, Teenage Graffiti stood out from the pack with the hit "Little Razorblade," which exploded on radio stations from coast to coast as well as on Total Request Live, with MTV describing Teenage Graffiti as "a collection of sweaty, fist-pumping anthems" and declaring that THE PINK
SPIDERS' "rock and roll assault was underway."

That album, coupled with the band's no-holds-barred live show, earned them a summer-long appearance on the Van's Warped Tour, a post-game headlining concert in the outfield of Dodger
Stadium, and heaps of praise from such respected media outlets as Spin, Billboard, Blender, USA Today and more. Alternative Press named THE PINK SPIDERS one of its "Bands You Need
to Know in 2006", while Rolling Stone said they have "enough catchy charm and ass-kicking propulsion to suggest a ballsier WEEZER or a punk-schooled CHEAP TRICK...the SPIDERS are
ready to spin a power-pop revolution." Entertainment Weekly appreciated their "ideal blend of sweetness and crunch," and Spin declared the album "angst-ridden, smart-assed and slickly catchy."

THE PINK SPIDERS released their third LP Sweat It Out on Friction's own label Mean Buzz Records, via Adrenaline Music. With producer Brendan O'Brien (PEARL JAM, STONE TEMPLE
PILOTS, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN) at the helm, the band released the singles Gimme Chemicals" and "Seventeen Candles," the latter of which the band performed to over 11 million viewers on
the hit reality. show Hell's Kitchen.

With the upcoming release of their finest work to date, Mutations, and plans for non-stop touring, THE PINK SPIDERS are, once again, taking over!
