BLACK COBRA Confirm New American Summer Headlining Dates; New Zealand/Australian Tour With Fu Manchu Begins Next Week

Crushing Bay Area duo BLACK COBRA have devastated audiences across Europe for several weeks — including a performance at the massive annual Roadburn Festival in Holland this past weekend — with the tour coming to a close in Helsinki, Finland tonight. Following the current tour the band will traverse the globe to undertake their second tour of Australia and first of New Zealand, with several headlining shows planned in addition to a stack of performances as direct support for stoner rock legends Fu Manchu.

Upon their return from the tour of New Zealand and Australia, BLACK COBRA will hit the highways of the U.S. once again, taking on a slew of newly-confirmed headlining shows — mostly alongside Salt Lake City’s grind unit Gaza — both bands on their way to link up with Torche and Corrosion of Conformity for their massive North American June tour together. Post-tour, BLACK COBRA and Gaza will head back out on another run of dates together, once again with BC headlining.
