Invisible Oranges Live! Black Cobra, Lo-Pan, Kings Destroy, Godmaker at Saint Vitus
On September 18, Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus is set to become ground zero for the slow and low rumble. The touring package of Black Cobra and Lo-Pan will be joined by Kings Destroy and Godmaker for an Invisible Oranges sponsored show. Tickets are available now. You can check out the full list of Black Cobra and Lo-Pan dates below.
Besides racking up the miles on the road this year, Black Cobra will also be working on their next album that should see a release in 2015. Their last album, 2011’s Invernal, came out on Southern Lord and took the duo’s sound in an even more ruthless direction. Guitarist/vocalist Jason Landrian (ex-Cavity) and drummer Rafa Martinez (ex-Acid King) barreled through rip-roaring sludge that was bathed in low-end buzz. It’s loud on record. Imagine it live.
The absurdly catchy Lo-Pan echoed the great Only Living Witness with hooky stoner rock that never sold out its heft. 2011’s Salvador was a blast thanks to hummable riffs and singer Jeff Martin’s voice which might as well have been audio crack. The Ohioans are readying their next album Colossus for release on October 7 through stoner sanctuary Small Stone Recordings.
New York’s Kings Destroy and Godmaker have both been making the city vibrate with thick riffs. Kings Destroy offer a trad-y take on doom, pulling influences from the old guard of American crawlers. Godmaker rumble with a wide-open, Sleep-y sound that emphasizes crushing wums and rocking solos.
So, if you’re in the area, catch this show. If not, check the dates below and catch this tour. Riffs.
