Detroit Cobras are back with a bang!
After the last April blitz in Europe (only three, sold out, shows for over 2500 tickets sold!) and the direct support to most of the MC50 recent USA tour, Detroit Cobras will release a new single for Third Man Records and plan an extensive EU tour in late 2019.
There is no much need to introduce one of the earliest groups to emerge from the Detroit garage rock scene in the 90's.
If you know the name, you know what we are talking about!
"…the Cobras do the unthinkable: make rock n' roll simple, fun and irresponsible."
"Sure, it's red-blooded and raw, but it's also as beautiful as it is brassy. In other words, bad girls make good."
"You should hope and pray that they play your party."
Crawling out from the weed-choked lots of the once proud town, The Detroit Cobras whip out ass-shaking anthems to good times, wild times, and the high and lows of L-U-V; you best believe it and you best not mess with it.
Blurring the lines between R&B and R&R and soul, the Cobras are THE go-to party band for those in the know. Singer Rachel Nagy and guitarist Mary Ramirez are the bad girls by the exit doors at the school dance, all leather and heels, sneaking smokes and passing the flask. They have no time for dewy-eyed love songs or girl group decorum; they'll take care of business themselves with a bat of the eye or an elbow to the kidney. Rachel's "warm as the half pint of bourbon under the seat of your car" voice can boom to the back pews (Did we say "pews?" We meant "barstools") and Mary's riffs let you know that love and good times can be found in the tilt of a hip or at the end of a fist.
Surrounding themselves with a rotationg cast of some of Motown's finest rockers, the Cobras specialize in unearthing and reinvigorating the hits, near hits and sometimes total misses from the deep and groovy history of soul, and making them THEIR OWN.
Detroit Cobras albums are like a secret decoder ring that helps lead the way to a better, more soulful forgotten world.
