About The Spyderz
From the mind, heart and soul of Evan Seinfeld, 20 year member and founder of world renowned hardcore metal outfit Biohazard comes ''the Spyderz''. A pure rock band that embraces classic Rock and Roll sounds and lyrics, the Spyderz is a refreshing new chapter in outlaw style rock music. With sonic comparisons to such diverse acts such as Black Sabbath, Stone Temple Pilots, Guns N Roses and the Misfits.
The Spyderz embodies the Rockstar~Pornstar Lifestyle unique to Evan Seinfeld. In less than a year ''The Spyderz'' have built a very strong following at their live shows from NYC to L. A., London to Amsterdam and more. Signature Riffs, marching rhythms, infectious hooks, and anthemic vocals make the Spyderz the soundtrack to what is hot in rock today, and the perfect backdrop to all things sexy. Spyderz concerts fuse classic rock with modern go-go dancing, and put the element of danger back in rock and roll. The members of the Spyderz are Dirrty, (Hollow NYC) Lead Guitar, Johnny Jetson, (Tattooed Millionaires) Lead guitar, John Monty, (Ministry, Dragpipe, Mod, mindfunk) Bass, and Lee Nelson, (Black Lotus), on the drums. The Spyderz make their home base in both NYC and Los Angeles to maintain a presence on both coasts. At the present time, the Spyderz are independent and unsigned.

About Evan Seinfeld
Evan is best summed up as a modern renaissance outlaw. He has conquered the worlds of music, television, film, and photography – both in the mainstream and triple-X playing fields – and has only just begun to fulfill all of his creative dreams.
As a founding member, lead singer, and bassist of the influential and groundbreaking social hardcore band Biohazard, Evan led the Brooklyn-bred rockers to multi-platinum status and critical acclaim for the past 20 years. The group’s material embodied the urban struggle of life on the gritty streets of Brooklyn as communicated through mammoth, machine-like guitar riffs, growling bass lines set to greasy drum grooves. But it was Evan’s gruff, rhythmic vocals and honest, timely lyrics that connected with a generation growing weary of the narcissistic ‘80s.
''Our fans used our music as a soundtrack to a positive release for their negative energy,'' says Evan. ''Biohazard’s music speaks to the violent, aggro and disenfranchised youth of our global, urban, tribal, hardcore heavy metal community.''
Since forming in 1987, Biohazard has released 10 albums and reached nearly 4 million units sold worldwide without a single spin at commercial radio. At their height, Biohazard’s State of the World Address (featuring Cypress Hill’s Sen Dog on ''How it is'') reached No. 2 on Germany’s pop album charts, right behind David Hasselhoff.
The band’s success is due to the laudable reputation they garnered as the hardest working touring band of the ‘90s. Biohazard performed more than 3,000 concerts in over 80 countries. The band has headlined major festivals, including the notorious Dynamo Open Air in Eindhoven, Holland and shared the bill around the globe with such acts as Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Pantera, Slayer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Cypress Hill, David Bowie, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, the Prodigy, Aerosmith, Midnight Oil, Kiss, Iron Maiden, and many others. Hundreds of thousands of the bands rabid fans proudly wear the iconic Biohazard logo on their skin. The logo was once named Best Band Logo by Rolling Stone magazine.
Evan reinvented himself as a mainstream actor in 1998 when he accepted the role of badass biker Jaz Hoyt on HBO’s critically acclaimed prison drama Oz. The musician-turned-actor displayed his creative diversity by portraying one of the most despicable TV characters ever conceived from season two in 1998 through the show’s series finale in 2003. His renewed star status landed him on Politically Incorrect along with Ralph Nader, who told Evan, ''You could lead an unruly mob of beer drinkers to the gates of Hell. And I firmly believe they’d follow you there.''
In 2002 came another step forward in the entertainment industry – this time in the adult film sector. He took over managing his soon-to-be wife, adult superstar Tera Patrick, and created Teravision together in 2003. The couple married in January 2004. Evan dons the hats of CEO, director, photographer, cinematographer, producer, manager, and agent. He also oversees the company’s several websites, production, distribution and licensing deals, as well performing under the naughty nom de plume Spyder Jonez in many features, including Tera Tera Tera, Teradise Island, Reign of Tera, Collision Course, Appetite for Destruction, Test Drive, Desperate, and others.
Evan also appears in the 2005 documentary film Fuck, which includes commentary about what the word fuck means by such artists, authors, musicians, politicians, and celebrities as Hunter S. Thompson, Bill Maher, Alan Keyes, Alanis Morissette, Ice-T, Sam Donaldson, Drew Carey, Steven Bochco, and his wife Tera Patrick, among others.
In 2006, Evan was chosen by VH1 to be the fire-starter of an elite cache of rock musicians pitted against one another in a sequestered environment to create the hit rock reality series, Supergroup. He co-starred alongside rock legends Ted Nugent, Sebastian Bach of Skid Row, Scott Ian of Anthrax, and Jason Bonham, son of the legendary John Bonham of Led Zeppelin. ''They made me out the bad guy,'' smiles Evan. ''But really I’m just a nice Jewish boy from Brooklyn.''
As a photographer, Evan’s work has been published in the pages -- and on the covers -- of such major magazines as Playboy, Penthouse, FHM, and Maxim. He has also written for many publications, including an ongoing column for Stuff magazine.
Presently, Evan and Tera co-host the Playboy Radio show Rockstar/Pornstar for Sirius Satellite Radio and run a multi-million dollar porn empire that includes a production company (Teravision), a licensing and marketing division, (the Tera Patrick Agency), a hardcore video production company (Iron Cross), a lingerie line (Mistress Couture), and several websites (their flagship site, www.terapatrick.com, the interactive game site www.virtualtera.com, and the newly launched celebrity porn site www.rockstarpimp.com).
Meanwhile, Evan is on the 20th anniversary reunion world tour with Biohazard through the end of 2008 with more dates to be added in 2009. He will also soon be entering the studio to work on the debut album from his new band, the Spyderz - a melodic mix of classic rock and punk-styled anthems (www.myspace.com/thespyderz).
Evan and Tera’s joint autobiography, Rockstar/Pornstar: An American Love Story, is currently being written with entertainment journalist Carrie Borzillo-Vrenna (author of Cherry Bomb: The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Better Flirt, a Tougher Chick, and a Hotter Girlfriend, and to Living Life Like a Rock Star and Eyewitness Nirvana: The Day-by-Day Chronicle) and is expected for release in late 2009.
