New Message Board
The new Message Board is now up and ready for use.
David Michael-Philips on HardKnockz
David just told me about an interview he did for HardKnockz, it's cool go here.
I've received notice from InsideTheWeb that due to decline in business and lack of funding, they'll be shutting down all of their message boards on March 5th. I want you to know that there will be a new message board, although I haven't chosen one yet. I'd also like to make all the old posts accessible for reference, but that will take some time.
As you may have seen on the Message Board, the band is beginning work on their new album. The record deal is with MTM Records in Europe. Plans are to begin recording in February. The album will be recorded at Sound Asylum in Los Angeles. Kelly Keeling will be on vocals. All the other originals will perform on the album, and possibly even some guest artists! Some working song titles right now are Bitch, Hollywood Trash, Do It, Subway, and I'm A Freak. They may also do a new version of Ready To Strike. The group is very pumped about their ideas. Look forward to a new King Kobra coming soon!
Happy Holidays to all the visitors of The Official King Kobra Website! Click here for Carmine's holiday greeting.
