Black Cobra at Tone Deaf SXSW 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
Black Cobra

Now that Roadburn 2012 is in their rearview, two man sludge wrecking crew Black Cobra have a new challenge on the horizon, conquering the land down under. The duo will play Australia and New Zealand starting next week and follow-up those dates with ANOTHER set of US dates, this time with Corrosion of Conformity, Torche & Gaza (though all bands are not on all dates). The dates include a stop in NYC at Saint Vitus on June 25th with Gaza. Tickets are on sale. All dates are listed below.

In related news, Torche have released their new LP Harmonicraft, and are streaming it in its entirety at Spin. Look for Torche in the NYC area at Orion Music & Arts Festival.

Gaza is welcoming a new LP in the near future, though details have been spotty thus far. The band, however, has revealed that one song is called "Tebow" and released the lyrics for said song earlier this year. Check out the lyrics at facebook and dig on all tour dates and some video of Black Cobra from Roadburn, below...
