December 25th, The Spider Accomplice releases their single, ‘Swallow’, and the accompanying video! The song will be FREE to download on Bandcamp all day!
The Spider Accomplice is back on the web, arranging our latest compositions for the new CD,’Los Angeles: The Abduction’. Get ready for all the energy,diversity,and intensity that you’ve come to expect from our tenacious trio!
“The Spider Accomplice brings mainstream rock music back to where it’s supposed to be, with rich melodic songs that have the eye of an artist, as opposed to the dark slog that much modern rock can be. VK’s crystalline vocals are the star of the show, but the band backs her up with textured songs that more than carry their weight. This is the next evolution of female-fronted modern rock…” ~Bloody Good Music
A Mystery Has Begun with an Indiegogo twist….
The record’s written, but the band’s been taken hostage. It’ll take an #ArachnidArmy to ransom them.
In late April, VK received a phone call…
The band has been abducted, and it couldn’t come at a worse time- The record is written and ready to be recorded! But without the Accomplice…how will The Spider spin????
It’s time to mobilize, #ArachnidArmy
To raise the ransom money, VK is offering rewards to all contributors. We don’t know how diabolical our kidnapper is at this stage, so each dollar could be saving a finger, or providing a chicken wing.
Time is ticking.
The quicker we can rescue the boys, the quicker we can get back to making music! We have rewards to accommodate every level of assistance that you can offer, so peruse and choose!
Every week new perks will be added until we get our boys home!
Every click counts!
We need to get the story out to as many eyeballs as possible, if we’re going to succeed in our mission!
Share the campaign on your social networks!
Post photos of TSA memorabilia and show Arno & Justin our solidarity with them!
Our hashtags are #SpiderAbduction #FreeJaylee
LET’S GET OUR BAND BACK!!!!!

I write about the inner struggles of the individual; the pains of the soul, mind and heart. Is this because I am insensible to the struggles of society? Quite the opposite.
I believe that systemic persecution, oppression and inequalities arise out of damages unhealed in the lonely, singular being. Repair the damage in the man, and you prevent the damage he may do to a nation.
Modern rhetoric, with its dependence on pithy memes and ‘top 10’ lists, homogenizes the population, then offers generalized, flippant solutions to complex dysfunctions. No longer are you ‘John Smith’; you’re a ‘leftist, millenial male’ or a ‘conservative, white-collar Christian’, and once you’re categorized, certainly prescriptive guidance can be offered that applies equally to everyone of your ‘type’.
Our singularity is lost in the generic character of our problem-solving.
As an artist, I focus on the small wound, on the crack that becomes a break. In stories of failure and misfortune, I don’t indict; I console. We have all fallen short. I seek to examine where the trouble began, retrace our steps, and do better next time.
If you see yourself in a character, or hear your tragedy in a song, or watch your inner demons dance in a poem, you know that you are not alone.
And sometimes…that can make all the difference.
