Story by Jack Foley

COBRA Starship have announced a UK tour which kicks off on February 5, 2010 and includes a date at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire on February 10.

The band are also set to release their new single Hot Mess on February 15, the second single to be taken from their forthcoming album of the same name (which debuted at number four on the billboard Top 200 chart in August), and is out the following week.

The newly announced dates will be their first UK shows since May 2009 when they completed a sold-out UK tour (which included a date at London’s ULU).

The tour dates are (all February 2010):

5 – Manchester Academy 2
6 – Leeds Metropolitan University
7 – Glasgow O2 ABC
10 – London O2 Shepherds Bush Empire

Tickets go on sale today (Wednesday, November 25).

Cobra Starship are the brainchild of ex-Midtown frontman Gabe Saporta. After the inclusion of their killer track ‘Bring It (Snakes On A Plane)’ on the hit movie’s soundtrack things soon took off and it was time for Gabe to get a full band together.

He enlisted old friends Alex Suarez and Ryland Blackington from This Is Ivy League for bass and guitar duties respectively, and drummer Nate Navarro, Victoria Asher took on the role of keytar and the line-up was complete.
