Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen recording group Cobra Starship has announced the release of their anticipated new album. “NIGHT SHADES” arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on August 30th. The first single, “You Make Me Feel… (Feat. Sabi)” is rapidly shaping up as a summer pop smash, having now ascended into the top 30 at CHR/Top 40 radio outlets nationwide. The track is also quickly becoming an international sensation, having recently debuted at #1 on New Zealand’s overall singles chart.
What’s more, the “You Make Me Feel…” companion video premiered last month on MTV and has since been added into rotation at MTV, mtvU, MTV Hits, and MTV.com (where it hit #1 immediately upon its release). The clip – directed by Kai Regan (who previously helmed Cobra Starship’s 2009 blockbuster, “Good Girls Go Bad (Feat. Leighton Meester)”) – is also blowing up online, scoring over 650,000 plays via Fueled By Ramen’s official YouTube channel, located at www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpyZEzrDf4c.
Fans can now join in on the excitement at the Cobra Starship Photobooth (www.cobrastarship.com/photobooth), where users can turn on their webcams to find out their true “feelings” just like in the “You Make Me Feel…” video. Cobra Starship is encouraging their fans to post their best photobooth shots on the band’s official Facebook wall – an array of prizes, including signed photos, merchandise, and phone calls from the band members themselves, will be awarded to the favorite entries. Furthermore, one randomly selected user will receive the actual smashed sunglasses worn by frontman Gabe Saporta in the “You Make Me Feel…” video and featured on the cover of “NIGHT SHADES.”
In addition, fans can pre-order “NIGHT SHADES” in a variety of exciting packages beginning July 20th. The premium bundle, limited to 300 only, will include the album, a t-shirt, as well as a hoodie and sunglasses available exclusively to this package. All pre-orders will receive an instant download of Cobra Starship’s new single, “You Make Me Feel… (Feat. Sabi).” The first 500 fans pre-ordering “NIGHT SHADES” will receive an autographed copy of one of the Cobra Starship band members’ photos featured in the “You Make Me Feel…” video, with five randomly selected orders receiving the complete set of all five band members’ photos.

“NIGHT SHADES” is Cobra Starship’s boldest and brightest collection to date. The album – the band’s fourth, and first since 2009’s top 5 breakthrough, “HOT MESS” – sees the dance-punk superstars teaming up with a wide range of collaborators, including Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic, Beyoncé, Adele), Stargate (Katy Perry, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez), Jump Into The Gospel, and The Plasticines (see attached tracklisting).
Cobra Starship will celebrate the release of “NIGHT SHADES” as one of the headline acts appearing at Fueled By Ramen’s upcoming 15th anniversary concert series at New York’s Terminal 5. Cobra Starship will top the bill on the final night of the event, slated for September 9th. For more information, please visit www.FBR15.com.
Since emerging in 2006 with their acclaimed debut album, “WHILE THE CITY SLEEPS, WE RULE THE STREETS,” Cobra Starship has earned both critical applause and a fervent fan following for their eclectic blend of pop hooks, punk energy, and dancefloor creativity. The New York-based band’s third album, “HOT MESS,” entered the Billboard 200 at #4 upon its August 2009 release, marking their highest chart ranking to date. Among the album’s many highlights is the Top 5 CHR/Pop hit, “Good Girls Go Bad (Feat. Leighton Meester),” which is currently nearing double platinum certification by the RIAA for sales in excess of 2 million.
A truly kinetic and captivating live act, Cobra Starship has toured nearly non-stop since their arrival. In addition to countless headline dates, the band has shared multi-artist bills with such like-minded outfits as 3OH!3, headlined Vans Warped Tour, and lit up festival stages all over the world. The band has also made a wide range of high profile TV appearances, including ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and innumerable MTV events and programs.
