BLACK COBRA: SXSW & Spring Tour + High On Fire Tour Announced

While the unstoppable touring duo BLACK COBRA are currently amidst a California retail in-store mini-tour promoting the vinyl release of their latest album Chronomega, they’ve also just announced their plans to get right back out there as soon as possible. The band will hit the Southwest and Southern US for the second half of March, with a stop at the Tone Deaf Touring showcase at SXSW, joined by Weedeater, Liturgy, U.S. Christmas, Rwake, White Mice and more along the way.

Immediately following that tour, it has just been confirmed that BLACK COBRA will join the recently announced month-long US tour opening for the massive High On Fire! Also acts on the tour include Priestess and Bison BC, making this one of the grittiest, headbanging rock tours of the year.

Stay tuned for additional BLACK COBRA live aktions and more updates shortly.

“…innumerable power chord counterpoints, weaving harmonies, and creepy melodies spread across these and other songs… give Black Cobra their due, because Chronomega is one of those albums that simply won’t be denied.” 4.5/5 – All Music Guide

“These songs rumble forth in a now-perfected punkish stoner stampede, but Rafael Martinez and Jason Landrian tear it up once again on this 38-minute exercise in rockin’ cranial punishment, and they make sure every minute is productive towards raising the body count.” –

“…far more dynamic, demonic and imposing than High On Fire could ever dream of yet still forthright enough to suck the listener in. Bleak yet bombastic, agonized yet frenetic, Chronomega obliterates.” – Exclaim!
