Los Angeles-based rockin’ pop band Thorcraft Cobra (www.thorcraftcobra.com) announced today that they have confirmed January 8, 2013 as the release date for their debut full-length release, Count It In (Plaza Bowl Records and Tapes) distributed via Red Eye Distribution in the US and Outside in Canada.
Thorcraft Cobra’s record release show will be held at the Bootleg Theater (http://www.bootlegtheater.org/) in Los Angeles the same day as release date. Tickets are $8, doors at 8pm, 21 and over.
“Count It In” has been making a name for itself at radio through the politically charged first single “Count Me Out”, which was released digitally on Oct 30 and which charted nationally in the Top 10 on the KKBB Specialty Show chart. The video for “Count Me Out” can be seen at http://youtu.be/SgR1qubMiVY.
This eclectic album of radio friendly riffs, ballads and dance ready tunes is the brainchild of Billy Zimmer and Tammy Glover. Part Canadian cold (Zimmer) and California cool (Glover), Count It In features fourteen tracks with help from friends including Ron and Russell Mael from Sparks, Steve McDonald (Redd Kross), Mahsa Zargaran (Big Black Delta, Omniflux, Sabrosa Purr) and Will Love (Sabrosa Purr) including:
1. Count Me Out
2. Another Day
3. Party Clock
4. True Love
5. Dark Willows, Bright Flowers
6. Black Swan (It’s All Inside of You)
7. Bemused, Bored and Deranged
9. Oh Melody
10. I’m Not Sorry
11. Forget The Photograph
12. I’m Putting Your Toys Away
13. You’ll Get Nothing
14. Party Clock (Radio Edit)
Thorcraft Cobra began in 2010 when Tammy and Billy were label mates at the now defunct, yet influential record label Permanent Press Recordings. Having hatched plans to form a duo and record together, their prolonged gestation took a back seat while Tammy toured the world and recorded with Sparks. Thorcraft Cobra (named after a long since expired Canadian amplifier) made their eponymous debut release via EP. It reached # 13 in America on The Top 50 Artists at Specialty programming on Alternative Radio.
