About

Less than three weeks after THE PINK SPIDERS first national independent release for the album Hot Pink, and in the midst of a nationwide tour, the band found themselves at the center of a major-label bidding war. THE PINK SPIDERS landed a deal with Geffen Records, and in short order released their highly praised major label debut, Teenage Graffiti. Produced by hit-maker and legendary frontman of THE CARS, Ric Ocasek, Teenage Graffiti stood out from the pack with the hit "Little Razorblade," which exploded on radio stations from coast to coast as well as on Total Request Live, with MTV describing Teenage Graffiti as "a collection of sweaty, fist-pumping anthems" and declaring that THE PINK SPIDERS' "rock and roll assault was underway." 

That album, coupled with the band's no-holds-barred live show, earned them a summer-long appearance on the Van's Warped Tour, a post-game headlining concert in the outfield of Dodger Stadium, and heaps of praise from such respected media outlets as Spin, Billboard, Blender, USA Today and more. Alternative Press named THE PINK SPIDERS one of its "Bands You Need to Know in 2006", while Rolling Stone said they have "enough catchy charm and ass-kicking propulsion to suggest a ballsier WEEZER or a punk-schooled CHEAP TRICK...the SPIDERS are ready to spin a power-pop revolution." Entertainment Weekly appreciated their "ideal blend of sweetness and crunch," and Spin declared the album "angst-ridden, smart-assed and slickly catchy." 

For some reason, the album was never given a proper vinyl release. Until now.
