KOBRA AND THE LOTUS Signs With SIMMONS RECORDS/UNIVERSAL MUSIC

Canadian female-fronted metal band KOBRA AND THE LOTUS has inked a deal with KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons' revived Simmons Records label via a partnership with Universal Music Canada. Simmons confirmed the signing on his Twitter profile, calling KOBRA AND THE LOTUS "real metal."

KOBRA AND THE LOTUS' debut album, "Out Of The Pit", produced by Kevin Shirley, was launched in March 2010. In the following 16 months, the band performed 168 gigs, across five countries, including seven festival stages. A second album, "Visionary", was produced by Julius "Juice" Butty and scheduled for release in early 2012. A video for the song "Welcome To My Funeral" points to an undisputed evolution in the band; the music is stronger, meaner and heavier.

"Touring for 'Out Of The Pit' had a huge influence on us in terms of realizing which direction we wanted the new music to take," says singer Brittany Paige. "We really wanted to create new music that would portray the large amount of energy we put forward in a live performance."

KOBRA AND THE LOTUS is:

Brittany Paige - Vocals
Chris Swenson - Guitar
Griffin Kissack - Drums
Peter Dimov - Bass
Timothy Vega - Guitar
