"The Pink Spiders" are an American power pop band from the town of Nashville, Tennessee, that formed in 2003. The band consists of Matt Friction, Jon Decious, and Bob Ferrari.
The Pink Spiders
Friction and Decious came into the Nashville music scene in 2001. Friction was in the band Silent Friction, and when Silent Friction broke up they remade a musical connection with Ferrari to form The Pink Spiders in late 2002. By January of 2004, the band recorded their first album ''The Pink Spiders are Taking Over!'', as their first EP. They signed with CI Records in the summer of 2004. The band toured nonstop on the record, battling the chaos offered by life on the road. One show included their trailer catching on fire in Buffalo, and the band slept in New York City subways when they had nowhere to sleep. Their debut album, Hot Pink, was released by CI Records on January 4, 2005. Three months after the record was released, several major-label offers were on the table, and in April of 2005, the band signed with Geffen Records. The Pink Spiders have since been named as one of ''Alternative Press" "100 Bands you need to know in 2006.”
