Chocolate Starfish¬†‚Ästregarded as one of Australia‚Äôs best live bands of the 90s boasting two Top 10 albums and six Top 50 singles¬†‚Ästhas released their first full-length album in twenty years!¬†
SPIDER features ten piping-hot, brand-spanking-new tracks. It
‚Äôs classic rock¬†‚Äėn‚Äô¬†roll and Chocolate Starfish at the top of their game.¬†And what a game it is.

SPIDER¬†is already satisfying long-term fans and winning over new ones, with high-energy, power-riffed tracks like ‚ÄėFarmer Loretta‚Äô, ‚ÄėBad Dog‚Äô, ‚ÄėMother Lover‚Äô and ‚ÄėRock Diva‚Äô and strong, story-driven lyrics peppered with the band‚Äôs trademark cheek and irreverence.

The long-awaiting album comes bearing an aura of nostalgia along with the celebration, with SPIDER dedicated ‚Äėin loving memory of Zoran ‚ÄėSpider‚Äô Romic‚Äô, who passed away in 2012.¬†
Romic was the band‚Äôs guitarist and song writing partner with front man Adam Thompson. The pair co-wrote ‚ÄėHeavyweight‚Äô, the third track on¬†SPIDER, several years ago, and its presence in the album‚Äôs line-up is significant.

“It probably sounds a little metaphysical, but there are times even now when I’m writing by myself or with someone else and I can often hear him telling me, ‘don’t do that, try this’, reflects Thompson in a recent interview.¬†
‚ÄėThere are many times when I get that metaphysical knock on the shoulder saying¬†‚Äėjust try something different here‚Äô.‚ÄĚ

Chocolate Starfish powered on to the Australian music scene in the early 1990s and quickly secured themselves a space as an influential force with their cover of Carly Simon‚Äôs ‚ÄėYou‚Äôre So Vain‚Äô, original hit ‚ÄėMountain‚Äô and perennial favourite ‚ÄėFour Letter Word‚Äô.¬†
The band is still living up to their reputation for delivering great music and a killer show, currently wowing audiences in the 2018 Red Hot Summer Tour.
