With three albums under their belts, Kobra and the Lotus have been hitting all the right buttons when it comes to their spine-tingling live shows. This will mark the band’s second performance in Ireland following a debut performance in the Button Factory with touring partners, Delain back in November 2016.

Their most recent release ‘Prevail‘ marked Kobra And The Lotus’s debut as members of the Napalm Records roster, but for Kobra, the collaboration is a first on many levels for the band.

Also performing on this tour is one of the UK’s fast-rising progressive metal outfits, Brutai who have been making waves since the release of their debut album last year.
