SWEET COBRA‘s Earth LP was released in mid-2015 via Magic Bullet Records, the album delivering the band’s trusted and infectious ferocity through a slick, more accessible approach. It has the confidence and catchiness of the heavier moments of Queens Of The Stone Age with the drive of The Jesus Lizard; the surge and wallop of Quicksand while delving into far more diverse sonic territories. The pairing of Talbot and Ballou as co-producers has truly yielded a stunning, classic heavy album for the ages. Earth was recorded and produced by Matt Talbot of Hum and Kurt Ballou of Converge at Talbot’s Earth Analog Studios in Illinois, mixed by Ballou at his Godcity Studio in Massachusetts, and mastered by Carl Saff. Additionally, both Ballou and Talbot make guest appearances on the album.
SWEET COBRA is currently entrenched in the writing process of the follow-up to Earth, which will see release in 2018. Watch for updates in the months ahead.
