Good Morning Spider is an American rock band from Los Angeles, CA, formed in 2018. The band consists of Matthew Gore (vocals, bass), and Bo Bilstrup (guitar, various instruments, producer). The band’s sound, rooted in rock and country, yet still exploring and incorporating styles such as, pop, folk and experimental.
The groups debut ep “Cities” (2019), follows the lines of more traditional rock, adding elements of experimental and psychedelic pop. Each song is build up around different characters, and their stories told throughout five songs.
Matthew originally from Australia, where he toured as a bassist in “After the Fall” and “The Waits”, alongside bands such as, AFI, Dashboard Confessional and British rock band The Darkness, before venturing to the City of Angels in 2018. He quickly connected with Bo, a native of Denmark. Bo had great success with Danish rock band BliZter, who in 1998 got named “Best Danish Rock Band”, that led them to play in front of big crowds, with acts like, Aerosmith, Iggy Pop and Queens of the Stone Age.
The band is currently in the studio, working on their still untitled upcoming full album, scheduled for Christmas 2019. The songs takes a more simplistic approach, and draws a lot of inspiration from the old country scene, while still keeping the sound and feel of rock.
