In 2010, after a stint in Tape Deck Mountain, Jordan Clark founded Grand Tarantula. That same year the band released it's debut single I'm Not Gonna Let You Go 7" with artwork created by Kelsey Brookes. The single saw heavy rotation on the San Diego air waves which led to national opening slots for Grouplove, The Royalty, and Middle Class Rut. This single was followed up by the five song Grand Tarantula EP in 2012.
In early 2013, Clark was experiencing a bout of writers block opted to join Swami Records’ Mrs. Magician, deciding it was better to focus on touring with them rather than enduring continued creative frustration. After Mrs. Magician dissolved in late 2013, Clark was well prepared with new material for Grand Tarantula and hit the studio with Mrs. Magician guitarist Thomas Garcia.
Grand Tarantula will release it's debut EP on Riot House in September 2014.
