Pit Stories: Unexpected Mosh Breakout

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.

Many years ago, we went to a club, and Deep Blue Something was playing. They had a hit with Breakfast At Tiffanys. A few retarded kids tried several times to start one, but nothing ever happened. It was funny, but mostly sad.
