Cobra Skulls

Bringing The War Home

Fat Wreck Chords 764.2

Released on January 18, 2011


Defining COBRA SKULLS is dichotomously quite simple and extremely difficult. The simple approach would be to dub them one of the most genuine and meaningful punk bands of the past ten years. The complex route would be to take into account the fact that they have drawn comparisons to the likes of Against Me!, The Clash, the Misfits, Chuck Berry, and One Man Army, and iterate the notion that COBRA SKULLS somehow simultaneously encapsulate the diverse sound of each of those artists equally. It's an equation that goes against the very laws of nature, but once you've heard them somehow it all makes sense. Like some lab experiment gone horribly right. Beyond their unique amalgam of musical styling, there is also the highly charged message behind COBRA SKULLS music, both of which are on full display on their Fat Wreck debut Bringing the War Home. Their disdain for the modern human condition far surpasses the typical political targets of most punk bands; transcending class, creed, and dogma, nothing is safe from their scope. All five songs that comprise Bringing the War Home exemplify this, delivered on the crest of Devin’s soulful vocals, and driven by COBRA SKULLS’ contagious invigorating music. Their passion for political musings is authentic, not a paper mask to be simply donned like part of some ill-conceived costume so many punk bands adorn themselves in. It was born from the wholly real experience of working for the ACLU, being raised a first generation Argentinean- American, gaining perspective while writing about social issues for a Spanish-speaking newspaper in Nevada, and, of course, coming up in Reno. A pit of glittering neon lights, greedy wanton desire, salacious underhanded dealings; essentially Pinocchio's “Pleasure Island” for the modern western world. How could these guys not have ended up in a punk band?

During their tenure as a band COBRA SKULLS have proven their live show to be every bit as exhilarating as their albums. Fortunately for fans they have toured relentlessly over the past few years and will continue to do so with the release of Bringing the War Home. Seriously, these guys are road dogs in the truest sense of the word, not only have they recently shared the stage with NOFX, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Against Me!, The Loved Ones, Anti-Nowhere League (to name a few), but they literally tour with a dog. No joke. Her name is Bella. What more can we say? Pick up Bringing the War Home and get out to one of their shows.
