Monolithic duo YEAR OF THE COBRA premier new video, new EP ‘Burn Your Dead’ to releases Oct. 27th

Grindhouse-style video for ripping title track premieres via Invisible Oranges as band plays last dates of 3-week tour.

Bringing to mind dark and smoldering female-fronted outfits like Jucifer, Windhand, and Acid King, power-duo Year of the Cobra prove you don’t need a huge band to produce massive, infectious doom.

The band toured hard on the heels of their 2016 debut album …In the Shadows Below, hitting festivals throughout 2017 like Germany’s Hell Over Hamburg, the KEXP-curated Upstream Music Fest in Seattleand the epic Psycho Las Vegas.

Produced by Billy Anderson (Pallbearer, Sleep) their new 5-song Burn Your Dead EP sees the duo wasting no time kicking out a concise new batch of sultry, sinister heaviness before getting right back on the road.

Singer/bassist Amy’s churning “Rig Of Doom” and melodic vocals remain an impressive combo, as she wrings both chords and melodies from a 4-string Rickenbacker while haunting lyrical lines waft over the low-end churn, all backed inexhaustibly by partner Jon’s thunderous drumming.

Finishing up a 3-week US tour that took them across the country and included a performance at the Doomed & Stoned Fest in Indianapolis, Year of the Cobra now roll out the exclusive premier of the Black State Productions video for the first single and title track from Burn Your Dead.  Check out the video premier here via Invisible Oranges.

Look for Year of the Cobra to continue their refinement in live performances as they keep their momentum toward the future with Burn Your Dead. More tours, more fests, more trips abroad – and most of all – more evolution, because as YOTC put …In the Shadows Below behind them, they answer that album’s massive, rolling groove with a boldness of stylistic expanse that, on Burn Your Dead, serves as a funereal procession for the expectations of anyone who thought they knew what they were getting from the band. Pure, multifaceted fire.

“’Heavy’ is a given when a band is comprised solely of low end, but Year Of The Cobra have all the essential ingredients for a successful future.” – INVISIBLE ORANGES

“Many bands struggle to bring something so full to fruition in such a brief time, which makes their confidence and competence so impressive.” – NOISEY

“You won’t wish for a guitar to deliver a solo or even a power chord. Instead, you’ll wonder how they made it sound so musically real without a single six-string strum. Take your guitar and go home, Iommi. There’s no vacancy here.” – SORROW ETERNAL
