The Gothenburg Non-Stop web-site has published some excellent pictures of our favourite "Retro Rockers", Spiders taken at the recent "Sweden Rock Festival" by the very talented photographer Josefine Larsson. Josefine had complete backstage and onstage access and her photos are certainly well worth checking out. Josefine has already contributed pictures of Mattias Hellberg and The Movements to Retro Man Blog and I am sure we will see much more from her in the future. You can check out the full set of Spiders photos on the Gothenburg Non-Stop site and see more examples of Josefine's work at her official web-site.

Spiders will play at Club Destroyer, Sundsvall in Sweden on June 29th before heading off on an Iberian Tour to continue promoting their superb debut album "Flash Point", with the first date in Barcelona on July 01st. They will then play at the Rockfest in Rengsdorf, Germany on July 27th and then there will be a couple more appearances at festivals in Sweden in August. Visit the band's web-site for all the dates, venues and ticket details. Spiders will hopefully start recording the follow up to "Flash Point" in Autumn. Their single "Fraction" is so good it even made it onto our Retro Man Blog "favourite 7" singles" header logo above, amongst some very exalted company...!

With many thanks to Josefine Larsson.
