Last year, Chicago’s Sweet Cobra released their newest album Earth, which was co-produced and engineered by Hum‘s Matt Talbot and Converge‘s Kurt Ballou, who both also play on the record. A lot of it is pop-sludge that’s not too far removed from Torche, but for “Repo” they up the pop and turn down the sludge, coming out with a romantic-sounding song that’s closer to Merchandise than a metal band. That song just got a video (directed by Katie Kapuza), which stars a bunch of kids playing on a beach. Check it out, with a full stream of the record, below. You can pick up Earth on LP or CD over at Magic Bullet Records.
The band is on tour now with two other Chicago bands that push the boundaries of metal, Bloodiest (who recently put out their new LP on Relapse) and Electric Hawk. They just landed in NYC for a show at Saint Vitus on Monday (3/7) and we’ve got pictures of that show in this post.
