For the better part of the past two decades, Sweet Cobra has been seasoning their brand of thundering rock music with a full spectrum of sonic influences. Since their debut album Praise in 2004, they have continuously reinvented themselves with each installment in their catalog, growing from a hardcore/punk foundation through the land of post-hardcore into truly uncharted territory. With 2015’s Earth, Sweet Cobra established themselves as a multi-faceted tonal weapon, with the ability to stand alongside the heaviest metal acts one second and drop in as a house band at a country-western dive bar the next.

The band returned with Threes, their fifth album that works as a snapshot of an ever-evolving act at this present moment in time. While Sweet Cobra have done much to shed their punk-rock labeling, they still operate as such with many of the songs being written spontaneously at rehearsals over the last few years. What began as a spur-of-the-moment recording session to capture a few of the songs in their infancy, has developed into one of the most eclectic ten-song rock albums in recent history. The songs run the gamut from fast-paced, eccentric chaos to steady, meticulous aural beauty. While it may seem like a departure for a band who has been branded as a metal/hardcore act for years, listeners who have been paying attention will recognize that Sweet Cobra has long been capable of this caliber of diverse recording.

Today, Sweet Cobra have premiered a music video for the album’s excellent single “Wet Brain,” which also serves as a celebration of the record’s release on vinyl formats from Hawthorne Street Records (it was released on digital format from Pax Aeternum last November). The song is one of the album’s strongest and gets a dreamy video treatment from longtime friend and collaborator Bobby Markos of Documavision (and the band Cloakroom).
