Welcome to BuzzMusic, Spider Rockets! We loved the song and video for “Monster of Your Dreams;" you knocked it out of the park with the whole performance! We have to ask, where did you find the inspiration for this song?

“Monster of Your Dreams” was inspired by recurring nightmares and old horror movies. Imagine being pulled under the bed by a monster and clawing on the floorboards to break your slide into the darkness—that cold terror. Then, in the morning's bright sunshine, talk about it and realize how ridiculous the dream is. Making fun of yourself and your fear, but silently, still remembering the feeling of that terror.

The music video lets you see the viewer through a nightmare world. How did you decide this was the direction you wanted for the music video, and what was your favorite part of bringing that vision to life?

Roman Fernandez, who we’ve also worked with for years, developed the initial concept for the music video, which centered around the bedroom sequences. Filming those scenes was quite memorable. We were in a small bedroom and had serious balancing issues trying to stand and perform on the mattress. Also, the resident dog occasionally snuck into the bedroom to check in on the chaos. Finally, the final bed scene was harder than it looked. I don’t know how we managed to coordinate the movements of four people on a bed without causing serious injury to anyone.

How did Spider Rockets come to be? What’s the origin story, and do you have any particular favorite memories together as a band?

Johnny and I started the group in New Jersey. I auditioned for his band and didn’t get the gig. But we started writing together and eventually assembled a duo that expanded to a full band. We’ve had some great milestones. For example, our video for “Rip Your Heart Out” won six film festival awards in the USA and abroad. Our last music video, “Casual Violence,” hit over a million views on YouTube. The reception for “Monster of Your Dreams” has been great so far! People seem to like it, and it goes over really well live. We just got off tour, which was one of the high points during the show. Some of our fans even identify with the monster, as we were told after our live set each night. I love it!

What goals do you want to achieve with your music?

We are so thrilled that we are reaching more people with each single and video we release! And so glad to see the reception for the new music live. Onward and upward!

What’s next for Spider Rockets? Can we expect to hear more new music soon, and do you have anything you want to say to your fans?

We are heading into the studio for more recording and plan to release another video and single later this year. We also look forward to more touring and love meeting fans at the shows. Keep an eye out for new developments by following us on Facebook and Instagram and signing up on our email list!
