Seattle’s duo of thunderous stoner doom emissions, YEAR OF THE COBRA, announce the looming launch of a North American touring trek.
The band – Amy Tung Barrysmith (vocals/ bass) and Jon Barrysmith (drums) – will kick off the excursion in Boise, ID on October 20th. The trek will eventually wrap things up in Lawrence, KS on November 6th, but not before YEAR OF THE COBRA play the first-ever Prophecy Fest USA along the way.
The inaugural Prophecy Fest (USA) will happen at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, NY on November 3rd and sees YEAR OF THE COBRA alongside acts like Alcest, Novembers Doom, Xasthur, Kayo Dot, Crowhurst, Eye Of Nix, Völur, 1476, and So Hideous over the span of two nights.

YEAR OF THE COBRA’s upcoming tour will give fans a taste of music to come from the band’s forthcoming second full-length record that’s due out in 2019. The band comments:
“We’ve been hermits since our last U.S. tour this past August and have hunkered down and written a ton of new music… going to road test quite a few new songs on this run. Jack Endino will be producing and engineering the next record, which will come out in 2019 on Prophecy Productions. Tours and other exciting news are in the works. Stayed tuned!”
