Phoenix, AZ based, Dark Alternative Rock Band THE SPIDER HOLE has announced the launch of a Kickstarter Campaign to help support their upcoming LP and associated graphic novel, To The Monsters. The unique project is built around the LP with 11 original songs, each about a different monster, as well as a 100 page horror anthology graphic novel written and illustrated by vocalist Ethan Scott; each story in the novel is about a different band member over the course of one fateful Halloween night.
To celebrate the launch, the quartet has revealed their first single, “The Skeleton Wedding,” from the album!
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. – The Spider Hole

Two versions of the graphic novel will be offered through the Kickstarter, the standard softcover edition, and a DELUXE hardcover edition, which includes 4 additional stories. The hardcover edition is only available to Kickstarter backers.
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.
