Spider Bags formed in 2005 and hail from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In the beginning they were largely a revolving cast, with only Dan McGee (guitars, vocals) persevering through the various incarnations of the band. But during the 2011 recording of Shake My Head, the current line-up consisting of Steve Oliva (bass) and Rock Forbes (drums) was finally set. They have recently signed to Merge Records and have announced a new LP Frozen Letter which is set to come out on August 5.
In anticipation of the new album the trio has released a new single called “Back With You Again In The World”. It is a track packed with bags of energy and personality. It is a little frantic at times but it adds to the spirit of the record with a chorus of horns at the end to top it all off. Hopefully the rest of the album will be along the same lines, with its wild and wacky attitude.
