The band informs us: "This one's for all the non-believers...the people on the outside and the voice inside your head that said you'd never make it out. The voice that told you to stop dreaming. The devil on your shoulder whispering 'Go ahead and quit, you're not good enough anyways.'

"Out with the hate and in with the love. There's a new mantra in town and it's slamming that shadowed voice into the ground. We will Prevail and we are never backing down!"

Evolution is inevitable and Kobra And The Lotus delivered the most powerful album to date, "Prevail I," with "Prevail II" to complete the story in the not too distant future...

Pit Stories: Unexpected Moshing

Mosh pit Monday is over, which means its time for another weekly edition of Pit Story Tuesday!

This week we have Napalm Records hard rock / heavy metal crossover group Kobra And The Lotus on tap to discuss favorite live show pit memories.

Less on the extreme end than our typical Pit Story band, Kobra And The Lotus shares a tale of when moshing broke out quite unexpectedly, to delighted results.

The band had this to say about a Los Angeles show with some very enthusiastic fans:

Here’s the thing, we aren’t exactly a mosh pit inducing kind of band… or so you would think. Some of our tracks like "I Am, I Am" could foreseeably start something but for some reason that never happens. Instead, the most inconspicuous tracks off the album get the serious action. Just recently at our show in LA, a mosh pit broke out during the verse of our latest single “You Don’t Know." A few of us actually burst out laughing on stage but mostly out of sheer enjoyment.

The verse in that song is one of the most chilled out moments of our entire set so it was completely unexpected. Those people were champions though and we salute them for having a good time!! Go check out our latest music video for “You Don’t Know” and listen to the verses. You’ll see what I’m saying!

What's the oddest time and place you've seen a mosh pit break out? Let us know in the comments section below!

Kobra And The Lotus wrapped up a tour with Xandria earlier this year and the band's latest album "Prevail I" was released on May 12th via Napalm Records. Check out the music video for "You Don't Know" in the YouTube player below. More...

Explosive Canadian outfit Kobra And The Lotus has completed work on new album and Napalm Records debut "Prevail I." The album is set for release on May 12th and today the band reveals the artwork, track listing, and first single "Gotham."

Frontwoman Kobra Paige comments: "When we are born, we are innocent, pure, and unshaped. This mandala signifies a human at the beginning of it's journey. Unscathed and beautiful, the mandala is each and every one of us. As this album unfolds, you will notice it's more than just music.

"'Prevail I' is a story of visceral truth and I believe, if we're really being honest with ourselves, everyone will find their story within it. After all, the battles may differ, but we all started as the same mandala and we are more relatable than we'd like to admit. Our only wish is that you may enjoy the freaking crap out of this album and find comfort in realizing you're not alone."
