Having released their sophomore release in April 2013, Kobra And The Lotus have stepped up their game and have indeed moved into the big league. Signed by Gene Simmons to his  Simmons Records label under the Universal Music Group umbrella. Formed in 2008 by singer Kobra Paige (Who happens to have 8 years of classical singer training) and with guitarists Matt Van Wezel and Chris Swenson. They would start recording their first cd, with drummer Griffin Kissack joining half way through the recording sessions of what would become the independently released “Into The Pit”.

After extensive touring, both in their home country of Canada and Europe, they would see various lineup changes as musicians would leave the band and be replaced by new members. In 2011 they actually started working on what would become their sophomore release. After shopping it around to labels it ended up in the hands of Gene Simmons who liked what he heard and had them signed to his record label. In mid 2012 they went back into the studio to record 4 more songs, that would end up on the new release.

On May 15th,2013, The Age of Metal caught up with Kobra Paige and Jasio Kulakowski on their San Antonio Texas stop, as support on the  Fear Factory “The World Industrialist Tour”. What follows is a conversation where we covered how they got signed by Simmons, influences, writing songs on the road, and what the future holds…
