With Thorcraft Cobra, Canadian cold meets California cool. Billy and Tammy first met in previous projects while they were on the same label–the now defunct, but influential, Permanent Press Recordings.
The two musicians always hatched plans to record together and, after a prolonged gestation (while Tammy toured the world and recorded with brothers Ron and Russell Mael, aka Sparks), Thorcraft Cobra finally came into being.
The debut Thorcraft Cobra full-length, COUNT IT IN is slated for release on January 8, 2013. The release will be on the Plaza Bowl Records & Tapes imprint, with distribution thru RedEye in the US and Outside in Canada!
The lead single from the record, COUNT ME OUT, hit iTunes, Amazon and eMusic on Oct 30. The song has had tremendous success at specialty radio, getting spins all over America and charting at #9 on the Alternative Specialty charts (KKBB). The song also reached #41 on the FMQB top 200 Submodern chart on 11/07/12!
The COUNT ME OUT video was also released on Oct 30, and can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SgR1qubMiVY&feature=plcp
