It’s the weekend so I thought I’d post some random stuff that people have e-mailed me (grungereport @yahoo.com) over the last few days. I think we are going to start covering some new Northwest/Grunge bands in possibly a weekly article type thing, maybe for weekends. We’ll see, it could end up being bi-weekly or monthly. The band covered today actually formed in 1998 so technically it isn’t “new,” but in comparison to the bands covered here I guess it is. So no ripping on me for a misleading title!

Spiral Pitfall is a Post Grunge/Hard Rock band that was formed in 1998 and is based in Portland, Oregon. The band is comprised of Guitarist/Vocalist Jake Sheffer, Guitarist Nick Rogers, Bassist Jared Haines and Drummer Bill Schattner. The music reveals influences from the likes of Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Janes Addiction and other bands which helped define the 90′s grunge era, while incorporating new themes without missing the point. The band’s current discography includes their debut EP ‘Cryptic Poetry’ and a rarities collection. All of this music is FREE to download on their website www.spiralpitfall.com
. The bands next album ‘The End of Old Ways’ is planned for release in 2011. The album cover is posted above. CLICK HERE
to listen to “Look Away,” a Jar of Fliesesque song by the band.

Found your nice site via Google, when I was searching latest news about Jason Finn (from the Presidents Of the USA, Love Battery, Skin Yard….)
and I thought you might be interested about my recent interview with Dave Dederer from Presidents of the USA (http://pusabase.com/wordpress/?p=662)
