Virgin Islands, British
GMM2012 - In 2010, they were named Best Underground Band by Metal Hammer magazine and even the Prince of Darkness is a fan. These are just two of the accolades this English band has earned since their inception in 2008. Their first release, a 3-track single called St. Peter, resulted in several dates with fellow rockers Airbourne. Since then, they’ve successfully opened for The Wildhearts, The Answer, Danko Jones and Black Stone Cherry in the UK and Ireland. Last year, the quintet recorded Sons of the North, their first ever full-length effort. The album garnered excellent reviews and they embarked on their first headlining UK tour. A Black Spiders show is synonymous with boundless energy and a larger-than-life sound that gets more than just the first few rows involved. Add a pinch of Black Sabbath, Motörhead, AC/DC, KISS and Led Zeppelin and you know why we invited them back after last year.
