It’s that time of year for spooks, monsters, and long-legged beasties, and who better to kick it off than Phoenix, AZ based Dark Alternative Rock Band THE SPIDER HOLE? The enigmatic four piece has launched the Kickstarter Campaign to help support their upcoming LP and associated graphic novel, To The Monsters. For fans a little too anxious to wait, they have revealed the debut single, “Skeleton Wedding,” which can be experienced online HERE.
“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
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.
For old fans of The Spider Hole, this album fulfills the promise of our earlier work; for new fans, you have joined us at a most peculiar and exciting time.
Old or new, we welcome you to the show, to the wonder… To the Monsters.

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.
