Fuzz fanatics Crystal Spiders emerged in North Carolina in 2019, helmed by bassist and vocalist Brenna Leath of Lightning Born. Releasing a self recorded demo to critical acclaim, the band were signed to premiere heavy label Ripple Music before the year’s
end. With influences rooted in the Sabbath bred lineage, their signature blend of stoner, doom, and psych is infused with a mix of classic rock dynamics, hardcore punk intensity, psychedelic texture, and bluesy swing.
Moving forward as a three piece, vocalist Brenna Leath, guitarist Reid Rogers, and drummer Aaron Willis forge a new path that rejects genre conventions while drawing an increasingly large fanbase in for a head bangingly good time. With a demo and 2 full length albums— MOLT (2020) and MORIER IS (2021) — under their belts already, Crystal Spiders’s momentum can only increase as they prepare their third album and a slew of European tour dates for the year ahead.
