ARTIST BIO

Since their inception in early 2015, Seattle based YEAR OF THE COBRA, has garnered a lot of attention. Their early rough mixes eventually became their debut EP, The Black Sun, co-released by DHU Records (Netherlands) and Devil’s Child Records (U.S.)

Singer/bassist Amy Tung and drummer Jon Barrysmith met in 2007 while playing in separate bands. After moving to Seattle, they finally decided to start their own project.  The first song they wrote together, White Wizard, only took a couple of hours, at which point YEAR OF THE COBRA was born.

They considered adding other members to the band but found the ease and difficulty of playing in a duo more alluring. It took a while to find their signature sound. Amy knew

she needed to split the bass tones and play through two rigs to get the right amount of highs and lows.

Her ‘Rig of Doom’ along with Jon’s dynamic, hard-hitting drumming style has created the huge and heavy sound that is YEAR OF THE COBRA. The haunting and deliberate bottom end drives deep while Amy’s melodic vocals sail over the top and weave throughout tying the knot to this power duo.

Year of the Cobra signed with STB Records in mid 2015.
