Comments Cobalt’s Erik Wunder of the upcoming tour:
“This will be the first extensive run of US shows that Cobalt has done, and the first ever with Charlie [Fell] on vocals. Our energy levels are heightened, and we’re looking forward to translating that into live performances. We’ll be playing an extended set so that we can play songs from Slow Forever, as well as the older albums. The pigs will run wild…”
