Gruesome twosome, BLACK COBRA, will begin their massive impending US tour with support from Lo Pan on August 28th.

Since 2001, the BLACK COBRA duo has unloaded a deadly, damaging and wholly unique style of punk/hardcore-propelled sludge doom metal. An introductory self-titled demo EP would get them immediately picked up by At A Loss Recordings who officially re-released the EP as well as their 2006 debut LP, Bestial, and 2007-released follow-up, Feather And Stone, the albums bridged by a split with Eternal Elysium on Diwphalanx Records. Their destructive hymns and notoriously explosive live energy caught the attention of Southern Lord Recordings who signed the band for their acclaimed 2009 LP, Chronomega, as well as their most widely and positively received album to date, with 2011’s massive Invernal.

An unstoppable touring machine, BLACK COBRA continually destroys the planet on the road, having played over seven-hundred shows on multiple continents since 2006, including Asia, Australia and both Europe and North America many times each. Massive festivals including Hellfest, The Power Of The Riff, Roadburn, Dour, Scion and others have set the band up with prime slots where the meager duo strikes the crowd with more venom than a band thrice its size every time. Their albums portray visceral otherworldly and sci-fi lyrics and storylines, the result of the band’s major fascination with horror and sci-fi literature and cinema. Guitarist vocalist Jason Landrian (ex-Cavity) and drummer Rafa Martinez (ex-16, ex-Acid King) both currently reside in San Francisco where they’re working on material for their next LP due for release in the coming months.

With thirty-two cities confirmed to endure the BLACK COBRA live treatment in the coming weeks, the band’s more than month-long US Tour with support from Lo Pan begins next Thursday, August 28th and will decimate the country through October 2nd.
