SPIDERS & HOT BREATH | July 12th 2022 – 8:00 p.m. | Drafthouse Hamburg



Spiders weave a wild web of reckless and infectious riffs, captivating vocals, seductive rhythms, sticky hooks and punk soul. The quartet – Ann-Sofie Hoyles (vocals), John Hoyles (guitar), Olle Griphammar (bass) and Ricard Harryson (drums) – emerged from their Swedish home of Gothenburg in 2012 with full-length debut Flash Point and rocked the leather to the hilt. In between a marathon of shows, they released the album Shake Electric in 2014, driven by the title track. A marathon of tours followed, as they wowed audiences alongside the likes of Kvelertak and Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats to Graveyard and Metallica. With Killer Machine, the Spiders’ third album of 2018, they once again break new ground while maintaining their sonic signature…. “If Alice Cooper and Stevie Nicks got married, their child would be Killer Machine,” grins AnnSofie. “That’s the vibe we were going for. The old influences are there, but it’s a little darker.
