Calgary-based hard rock quintet KOBRA AND THE LOTUS have returned with their new studio album Evolution, which will get a September 20th release on Napalm Records. The upcoming LP sees the band imbued with a new fire that comes through by way of undeniable hooks, soaring guitar riffs, marching drum beats, and the soulful, bombastic vocal delivery of lead singer Kobra Paige. No longer bound by old formulas and expectations from the past, Evolution comes through with a sound that is expansive and, at times, borders on outright swagger. Each song feels like an Active Rock hit in the making, while still having the grit and feverish intensity that longtime fans have come to admire from KOBRA AND THE LOTUS.

Fans can now enjoy the first offering from Evolution. The band has dropped their music video for the new single "Burn!", which can be seen on KNAC.COM HERE.

Evolution boasts the band's most cohesive and confident material to date. For the new record, KOBRA AND THE LOTUS enlisted the services of producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette [ALTER BRIDGE, LINKIN PARK, SLASH, SEVENDUST].

“The new body of work sets the tone for the music going forward. Sonically, it’s still heavy. It highlights the showmanship and maintains the edge. At the same time, it’s approachable. It pays tribute to our influences, but it takes the next step. So, it’s a reintroduction to us and a rebirth. A firm goal was to build a strong identity and update everything. We just want to be KOBRA AND THE LOTUS; that’s what we’re doing."

The first single, "Burn!” ignites this chapter. A hummable riff snaps into a visceral verse as the frontwoman directly declares, “I really hate you, yes I do.” The track builds towards an incendiary and infectious chorus, hinging on a seesawing guttural groove and hitting like a sledgehammer.

“It’s about all of the reasons you hold yourself back,” she explains. “You literally need to burn all of those feelings, stories, excuses, and obstacles keeping you from being your own authentic self. It’s super personal. It’s a product of growing and arriving as a person. I’m realizing who I am. It’s symbolic of the rebirth,” says Kobra.

Pre-orders for Evolution are available now over at https://smarturl.it/KATL-Evolution

Going further into the process behind Evolution, Kobra comments,

“We’ve never done a record like Evolution. We’ve flown demos over the internet back and forth or started a few ideas prior to hitting the studio. This time, we were all working together in the flesh for the full duration of the writing process. It’s a collision of everything we love. We feel like it’s the freshest and most timeless thing we’ve brought to the table.”

In addition to the release of their new record, KOBRA AND THE LOTUS will hit the road starting next month supporting Sebastian Bach. The trek kicks off on August 29th in Nashville, TN and concludes on November 1st in Ft. Myers, FL.
