In celebration of the vinyl release of their latest album "Chronomega", gruesome twosome BLACK COBRA will punish several California record stores with several in-store performances early this February. This is not only a great opportunity to get the mammoth new album on wax, but also to see the band for free in a intimate yet primal setting, for free!
The details are as follows:
Feb. 05 - Amoeba Records - San Francisco, CA @ 6pm
Feb. 09 - r5 records - Sacramento, CA @ 6pm
Feb. 10 - Street Light Records - San Jose, CA @ 4pm
Feb. 11 - Street Light Records - Santa Cruz, CA @ 4pm
Feb. 13 - Thirsty Moon - San Diego, CA @ 6pm
Feb. 14 - Vacation - Los Angeles, CA @ 5pm
The vinyl release of "Chronomega" will also include the band's cover of BUZZOV*EN's "Behaved", previously only available on the Japanese CD release of the CD, via Daymare Records. It will be pressed on 180-gram wax, the first pressing forged in several limited color schemes (800 red/yellow splatter, 500 black, 200 red/black swirl).
"Chronomega" is BLACK COBRA's Southern Lord Recordings debut. It was released in September; the album's nine tracks brimming with the two-piece outfit's patented style of crushing groove-heavy, fuzztone doom-metal angst, yet showcase a bit more dexterity and expansion on their sound from previous releases.
The LP version of "Chronomega" will be officially available on February 10. More tour actions for BLACK COBRA will be announced throughout 2010, with the band being on the road most of the year.
