Napalm Records label-mates Xandria and Kobra and the Lotus are set to kick off their North American tour tonight at in New York, NY at Webster Hall’s Marlin Room. Both bands have been chomping at the bit to return to the states and the time is finally here.
Xandria is touring in support of their latest release and seventh studio album Theatre of Dimensions. The album is a hyper-emotional affair that digs deep, lyrically speaking. It’s also an incredibly metallic effort. There is a soundtrack-like, orchestral finesse inherent to the compositions, echoed by pounding groove and sophisticated shredding.
Kobra and the Lotus are set to release their new album and Napalm Records debut Prevail I this Friday. Prevail I is a rock juggernaut full of blistering guitars, pounding rhythms and haunting vocal melodies that take the listener on a sonic journey leading them out from the darkness and into the light!
“It’s been a long time coming for Kobra and the Lotus to release new music and what could be better than to do it in this power-packed tour coming up. We are super pumped to be hitting the road with the mighty Xandria and Once Human! It’s sure to be a show that has something for everyone and charges people up from start to finish. Prevail I is to be released Friday but we will be kicking off the tour with the same blast of new tunes right off the bat…can’t wait to bang some hair and melt some ears!!! See ya soon”, says Kobra Paige.
