YEAR OF THE COBRA will support VOIVOD on their “Synchro Anarchy Tour 2022” across Canada and the United States in June. This heavy road-trip will kick off at the L’entité  in Trois-Rivéres on June 1, and after three more shows in Canada and eleven stations in the US will see the final curtain for this round fall in Boston, MA at the Brighton Music Hall on the 19th of June. Please see below for a list of all currently confirmed dates.

Seattle’s ultra-heavy psychedelic doom duo will be touring in support of their latest album “Ash and Dust” (2019), but YEAR OF THE COBRA are currently also working on new material, which means that you might catch a glimpse on things to come but obviously we cannot promise that for sure.

Details of YEAR OF THE COBRA‘s second album “Ash and Dust” can be viewed below. 

YEAR OF THE COBRA comment: “We are thrilled to hit the road with the awesome dudes in Voivod”, writes singer and bass player Amy Tung Barrysmith.

“Their impact and influence on the heavy metal world can be heard and felt throughout the whole genre. Very few bands stay relevant after decades of touring, recording, and releasing albums, but they continue to be a standout and their new album Synchro Anarchy is proof of that. It’s awesome!

This will be our first tour since the pandemic started, and those who know Year of the Cobra are aware that we love to be on the road and to play live. As we have not toured the east coast of the United States or Canada since 2019, we can hardly wait to see you all! We will bring along brand new merch that we have never printed before, which makes our shows your chance to grab some brand new Year of the Cobra gear!”

Formed in 2015, Seattle’s YEAR OF THE COBRA rapidly became a hot buzz in the doom metal scene and beyond. The super heavy duo, consisting of vocalist and bass player Amy Tung Barrysmith and Jon Barrysmith in drums has managed to clearly carve their very own path through the field already ploughed by such acts as BÖLZER and MANTAR.

Effortlessly ranging from classic doom melancholy to oppressively heavy riff architectures, YEAR OF THE COBRA also transform catchy, almost upbeat rock moments into swirling psychedelia.

While making their name and setting an exclamation mark mainly in the US with their 2016 debut full-length “…in the Shadows Below”, the duo firmly established their brand internationally on the sophomore album “Ash and Dust” in 2019.

Currently YEAR OF THE COBRA are working on new material for their forthcoming third fulll-length.
