    BOBAFLEX is known as one of the hardest working bands in the country. Renowned for their high energy, live shows and relentless touring the band was formed in 1998 by brothers Shaun and Marty McCoy. The brothers are known for their ancestral ties to the most infamous family feud in American history between the Hatfield and McCoy. The interest of the feud has spurred of late a mini-series, many documentaries and an upcoming modern day version series debuting this Fall. 

    BOBAFLEX released their 6th album CHARLATAN’S WEB on BFX RECORDS on September 10th. The long anticipated follow up to 2011’s HELL IN MY HEART that featured the singles BURY ME WITH MY GUNS ON, CHEMICAL VALLEY and THE SOUND OF SILENCE. The first single off the album BAD MAN recently entered the charts at #38, their highest ranking for a single in their history.
     
    The band consisting of brothers, Shaun (vocals, guitars) and Marty McCoy (vocals, guitars), Jerod Mankin (vocals, bass), Tommy Johnson (drums) and newly added David Tipple (guitars) will be bringing their tour from coast-to-coast in support of the new album and single, BAD MAN hitting the airwaves in July.
     
    Their catalog is rounded out by PRIMITIVE EPIC (2003) on Eclipse Records; APOLOGIZE FOR NOTHING (2005) and TALES FROM DIRT TOWN (2007) on TvT Records and CHEMICAL VALLEY (2010) which they self-released. The band is not dreading on the past anymore as they embattled a troubled label, legal battles and just looking ahead to the future.

    Music

    Loud rock has always been at the core of Spider Rockets. Lead singer, Helena Cos,

    and guitarist, Johnny Nap, started as a duo playing every dive bar in New Jersey and

    New York City. In between cranking out crowd favorites from AC/DC, Judas Priest,

    Guns n’ Roses and Metallica, the two would test the waters by infusing some of their

    own original material. This was a unique setup as the two had an electronic rhythm

    section and pumped out loud rock, something unheard of in the genre.

    The duo soon expanded to a full lineup and began working with Brooklyn-based indie

    producer, Martin Bisi, best known for recording iconic albums by Sonic Youth, John

    Zorn, Herbie Hancock (including the Grammy-winning "Rockit"), Helmet and White

    Zombie. Still in their infancy, the group managed to release their first effort, ‘Flipped Off,’

    which officially marked the end of the electronic rock duo format. An EP entitled

    ‘Preview’ followed. But, the group really began to hone in on their own sound with the

    release of ‘Ever After’ which was picked up for North American and European

    distribution by Locomotive Records. Experience began to pay off as “Ever After” yielded

    top adds on CMJ and FMQB radio charts.

    With Eric Rachel manning the boards (Atreyu, Black Dahlia Murder, Hatebreed, Misfits,

    Patti Smith Group, etc.), the group issued the self-titled ‘Spider Rockets,’ a more

    musically progressive offering. The group began touring on a national scale and

    supporting the likes of Pop Evil, Framing Hanley, ran a leg on Van’s Warped Tour and

    scored a slot at Berlin’s Popkomm Festival.

    Now, savvy at the art of song-crafting, Spider Rockets re-entered the studio to record

    their 2012 release, the more streamlined ‘Bitten’. An early rendition of one stand-out

    track, “Scream,” garnered over 35,000 hits on YouTube without any promotional efforts

    before the album’s official release. ‘Bitten’ was well received at press and named TOP

    10 Hard Rock Albums of 2012 by Metal Odyssey. It made Top Adds on the CMJ Metal

    charts, and at secondary market active rock, Spider Rockets triumphed over

    respectable heavy hitters like Five Finger Death Punch, Pennywise, Hellyeah and

    others. The group toured with Trapt and opened for the likes of Papa Roach, Steel

    Panther, and others. Their track, "Going Down," was licensed by WWE and helped push

    the track’s YouTube video to nearly 200K views.

    2016 marked Spider Rockets’ return into the studio for their fifth full length release, this

    time with producer Dan Malsch (Framing Hanley, Tantric and Doro) and ‘Along Came a

    Spider,’ the group’s latest album, was subsequently released in January 2018. The new

    album takes the ‘Bitten’ songwriting philosophy one step further with lush production

    coupled with Spider Rockets’ distinct brand of unapologetic in-your-face sound and

    attitude.
