Cobra Starship Landing Down Under In 2010
At The Frontier Touring Company there are a few things we like. We like purple hoodies. We like guilty pleasures. We like being in on the joke. We like it when good girls go bad. But most of all, we like Cobra Starship. A lot.
Lucky for us Cobra Starship are returning to Australia and New Zealand in 2010 for their first headline tour Down Under. Come March, fans in Auckland, Christchurch, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth will have a chance to see these American rockers do what they do best – dominate the stage.
Their last Australian and New Zealand tour saw Cobra Starship tear across arena stages in support of Panic At The Disco, drawing rave reviews from all in attendance.
“With true showmanship the band blisters through their set list of dance floor anthems leaving, as far as pop punk goes, one hard act to follow.” – Rave
“…a dance punk delight” – Blunt
“….a mind-blowing performance” – Inpress
In March Cobra Starship will return in support of their recently released third album Hot Mess (available now through Warner) as headliners in their own right. Their most celebrated record to date, Hot Mess sees Cobra Starship in fine form. Debuting at #4 on the US Billboard chart – their highest chart peak to date – confirms to the world that Cobra Starship have well and truly landed.
While fans have voted with their feet, critics have voted with their words, offering glowing reviews of Hot Mess.
“Hot Mess is a complete success” – All Music Guide
“Hot Mess has everything you hate to admit you love about Cobra Starship.” – Alternative Press
“Gabe Saporta continues to live his Eighties-pop dreams with Cobra Starship’s third album.” – Rolling Stone
"Hot Mess," is full of rhythmic dance songs and power-pop anthems – Yahoo
“…one of the year’s best party albums.” – Channel V
“If you don't finish this part record a hot mess, then you probably didn't have a good time.” – Billboard
Lead single from Hot Mess is the monster anthem ‘Good Girls Go Bad’ (featuring Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester). Embraced by fans and radio, the single has shot to the top 5 in both Australia and New Zealand, ensuring Cobra Starship will be well welcomed in 2010.
With a history of igniting audiences and outshining their contemporaries, there’s no doubt tickets to see Cobra Starship’s first headline tour of Australia and New Zealand will be in high demand.
