Don't Tread on Spiders are a Cardiff based alternative rock band. Their debut EP Monomyth, released in 2008, has received excellent critical reviews from Artrocker Magazine and Wales based E-zine God Is In The TV. The band has also received a "Number 1 Breaking Band" review in NME and appeared in local Cardiff independent compilation "This Town Ain't Big Enough For The 22 Of Us". D.T.O.S. have a lo-fidelity ethos to their recordings, and fortuitously in the current climate have embraced the Do-It-Yourself method of promoting and releasing their own material. They are currently known for their re-use of old B-Movie monster posters to promote their gigs. The Spiders follow various local projects; Sonny is a passionate follower of the lo-fi photography movement known as Lomography, whilst Max Chan is currently appearing as a Zombie in a locally made horror flick. Although their first release comprises of eclectic sounding songs with acoustic guitars and a 80+ year old piano (it's haunted), for live shows the Spiders are famous for their powerful electric guitar based songs, dynamic performance and raw/ riff -driven sound. Demos for songs "My Week In Shinjuku" and "Get Up And Go" have received airplay from a D.I.Y. special on Radio 1, along with other shows on X-Fm and TSM Radio. Sonny also appeared on the BBC Wales 'Art Mundi' documentary performing "Wasted You" in the opening credits. "Number 1 Breaking Band" NME "Brilliant Stuff.
