In a random announcement this week, the tonally decimating San Francisco-based gruesome twosome known as BLACK COBRA has announced a cross-country invasion just days after the start of the New Year.
On Friday, January 3rd the serpent will uncoil at an exclusive one-off East Coast rager as the band once again destroys Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn with several local support acts unreleased at press time.
Immediately after once again raging in Brooklyn, BLACK COBRA immediately takes off on their way back to their home turf, set to perform the following night at a benefit show for well-known rock/metal poster artist Alan Forbes (The Black Crowes, The Misfits, Black Cobra ‘s Chronomega LP, etc.). In October, Forbes was attacked in the Lower Haight neighborhood of San Francisco, which left him with two skull fractures and damage to his right eye. As the artist is uninsured, alongside millions of Americans, several benefit actions have been formed to aid in covering his growing medical expenses, including this event on January 4th where BLACK COBRA will headline with support from Lecherous Gaze, Pins of Light and Kicker.
BLACK COBRA is currently constructing new material; additional news on the band’s plans for 2014 will be announced in the coming weeks
