A week after releasing the band's first official video for "Going Down," Spider Rockets will hit the road with Saliva in the midwest and the south.

"We haven't been on the road since our runs with Trapt earlier this spring," admits lead singer, Helena Cos; "...but we haven't visited the south in at least a couple of years! So that, along with Saliva being cool enough to share the stage with us is pretty awesome."

Spider Rockets has a new stage show consisting of various backdrops, a smoldering rocket ship, probing searchlight, whips, megaphone, and a mannequin head.

"The rocket ship will be a work in progress, hopefully we won't need to abort any missions!" jokes John Nap, the band's guitarist. "But the real challenge as an opening band has been coming up with staging that won't interfere with the headliner's space; one that is modular enough to adjust from venue to venue, but that also packs light... And I believe we've found it." John refers to a series of self-standing vertical, retractable banners or scrims (neither, really) that can be extended, shortened, and rearranged depending on the size and configuration of the venue's stage. Bassist, Greg Manning, adds: "We just hope we don't end up with a 'Stone Henge' situation!"

The group also plans to bring along the four legged roadie/security guard, Lemmy, an 18 pound Dachshund with a bad attitude and a fierce appetite; "that little shit always sniffs out where I hide my meatball sub in the van," bitches drummer, Dan Prestup.
