Cobra Starship Biography

Cobra Starship is a band created by former Midtown bassist/lead vocalist Gabe Saporta. They are best known for their songs "Bring It (Snakes on a Plane)" from their 2006 album While the City Sleeps, We Rule the Streets as well as "The City Is at War" and "Guilty Pleasure" from their 2007 album Viva La Cobra!. The members of Cobra Starship, along with vocalist Saporta, include Victoria Asher (keyboard "keytar"), Ryland Blackinton (guitar), Alex Suarez (bass), and Nate Novarro (drums). Gabe Saporta, along with William Beckett of The Academy Is..., Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, Maja Ivarsson of The Sounds, Nick Wheeler of The All-American Rejects (although Wheeler didn't appear in the video but played guitar) and Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy (as a cameo) were featured in a music video for the film Snakes on a Plane. The song, "Bring It (Snakes on a Plane)", was featured on the Snakes on a Plane soundtrack, released on August 15, 2006. Fall Out Boy vocalist and rhythm guitarist Patrick Stump makes a cameo appearance in the music video for "Send My Love to the Dancefloor, I'll See You In Hell (Hey Mister DJ)". Stump also produced the newest Cobra Starship album, Viva La Cobra!, which was released on October 23, 2007. On October 2, 2007, Cobra Starship released the single "Guilty Pleasure" from their second album Viva La Cobra! According to the MySpace bulletin posted by the band, their new single can be heard on on their artist page. Their homemade music video for the single was later replaced by one featuring Patrick of Fall Out Boy as their producer. They have also released a second single and video for "The City Is at War". They have now recorded a Spanish version of "Guilty Pleasure", and have played on the Vans Warped Tour lineup. In September 2008, they are scheduled to begin recording new material before headlining a fall tour in the US called the "Sassy Back" tour with support by Forever the Sickest Kids, Hit the Lights, and Sing it Loud. In early 2009, they are scheduled to tour in the UK. After the success of "I Kissed A Girl" performed by Katy Perry, Cobra Starship had recorded their own version known as "I Kissed A Boy". It was featured on the CitizensFOB Mixtape called "Welcome to the new administration" along with many other new songs from Decaydance artists.
