Formed in New Jersey 2006 before migrating to North Carolina, Spider Bags are a band who have somewhat of a cult following. Attracting a dedicated fanbase, Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles used to perpetually call them the greatest band in the world before becoming a longtime collaborator. The Garage rockers who aren’t afraid to skirt on the edges of country, consist of founder Daniel McGee, Rock Forbes on drums and Steve Oliva on bass. Releasing their fifth album Someday Everything Will Be Fine August 3, the record sees contributions from admirer Stickles and Matthew Hoopengardner of the Golden Boy.
Recorded in Memphis’ Bunker Audio by Andrew McCalla (who also engineered SpiderBags’ seminal 2012 rock and roll party record Shake My Head), the album also features Memphis giants Jack Oblivian, John Whittemore, Jana Misener and Krista Wroten-Combest of the Memphis Dawls, and multi-instrumentalist Seth Moody.
Someday Everything Will Be Fine is available now on CD, LP, and limited purple-and-black “bruiser” Peak Vinyl in the Merge store.
