Heavy dream-rockers Spotlights resurface with a new 3-song EP, Spiders, to be released December 9th.

The Brooklyn-based married couple made waves earlier this year with the release of debut full-length Tidals and a summer US tour supporting Deftones and Refused.

New EP Spiders consists of a reworking of an older Spotlights song, a cover of a song by Danish band Mew, and a remix of one of Tidals' tracks, by former Isis drummer Aaron Harris.

Spotlights' cover of Mew's "She Spider" makes it debut today via BrooklynVegan. "Heavy, atmospheric... Spotlights are a perfect band to put a heavy spin on a Mew song," writes BrooklynVegan's Andrew Sacher. Listen, here:

December 9th, Spiders will be available directly from the band in the US, in digital and CD formats. Spiders and Tidals will both see a UK/European release via Plastic Head Distribution.

Spotlights plays its hometown of New York this Friday, November 18th, at Mercury Lounge with The Life and Times. Tickets, here.

"90s rock, luscious psych and rattling sludge... Like a slowly evaporating dream... Makes you want to headbang with tears in your eyes."

"Is it dreamy as fuck? Yes, but what really makes this band's music stick to my ribs is that it packs the punch-to-the-gut of a sludge album... They are just creating music on their own terms..."
