BLACK COBRA have recently announced an extensive North American tour.

A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

BLACK COBRA was formed in 2001 by guitarist/vocalist Jason Landrian (ex-CAVITY) and Rafael Martinez (ex-ACID KING, -16, GAMMERA). The band exploded from the underground with their scathing take on hardcore-fueled sludge metal. After the release of 4 well-received full lengths, BLACK COBRA have leveled venues across the country and internationally alongside HIGH ON FIRE, MASTODON, WEEDEATER, PELICAN, THE SWORD, YOB, SLEEP, MORBID ANGEL, and more.

Updated BLACK COBRA news and tour information will be made available at the Season of Mist website and BLACK COBRA’s official website and Facebook page.
