Those patrons of electric wizardry, romantic outlaws and borderline social pariahs The Black Spiders have been very hard at work creating the bloomin’ gaaawjus’ new melodies and mapping the righteous tales of daring adventure that will make up their second long player.
This year saw Black Spiders play with Skindred in April, on the Jagermeister Tour UK 2012 tour and trading licks with Thin Lizzy for a few nights in May.
A plethora of jousts and garden fetes across many lands have been also been fought and conquered including a final homecoming at the mighty Download festival where the band stormed the second stage. Yeah, we said it…stormed!
Well, hold on to your pork snacks people ‘cos the Spiders are back to take pity upon your wretched souls once more, or maybe a few times, with three more shows at the end this year. Truth be told hunkering down in the studio played havoc with their little hyper active and slightly skew-wiffy brains so…they are….playing at…the following…ace eh:

Pete Spiby said, to a man in a pub toilet: ‘’Its figgin’ awesome to be playing shows for three institutions that have stood loyally by the band to round off 2012. Metal Hammer have joined us on every adventure and we’re proud to hold their swords in any battle – the Harlots stepped up for the Kiss Tried To Kill Me Video, these girls are true warriors! – and Jager, what can we say – they’ve been onboard with the band from the start too, they inspire the songs that make the whole world drink, they make the drinks that make the whole world sing…much respect and love…see you there…we’ll bust some new songs on yo’ collective backsides…can I put this away now…is this thing still recording…”
