Spider Rockets Bring Animation and Twists to the High Energy “Rip Your Heart Out” Video

Spider Rockets are a band with a clear sense of identity. Hailing from Hazlet, New Jersey, and creating music with all the attitude and edges of the area, Spider Rockets are coming to take over.

So, for the record, is the anime protagonist of their video for “Rip Your Heart Out”. She’s tough and beautiful — and she catches the eye of a headphones-clad guy who is out with his friends. Soon, the blossoming relationship shifts to something else, something much more dangerous. When the giant spider comes out to play, the joyful amusement park setting turns to something sickly sweet.

All the while, rock and roll guitar pulls the song along at a quick pace while gritty, powerhouse vocals narrate the story. “I’m not here to change your mind,” vocalist Helena Cos makes clear, “but I will rip your heart out.” High density rock is here, and it’s not letting you go. 

“Rip Your Heart Out” comes off Spider Rockets’ fifth album, Along Came a Spider. To hear more from Spider Rockets, you can find them on their website, SoundCloud, and Facebook page. You can also follow them on Twitter for more music and news.
