DRAG, are an energetic sleazy-punk band with outrageous songs and an energetic live show to match.
The band has been active since 2006 with the current line up together since the end of 2013. During her teenage years, guitarist Velma started the band with a few friends and there were a number of line-up changes before singer Heather joined in 2007. A work colleague of Heather’s, bass player Matt, joined in 2012 and was shortly followed by good friend Andy, the drummer, in 2013.
DRAG’s debut Kickstarter-funded album, ‘Neurotica: A Compendium of Tales Regarding Body & Mind’ was released on 5th May 2014 independently through the band’s own label ‘Sleazy Punk Records’. Previously, DRAG had released two EP’s; ‘EP’ (2008) & ‘Home Made Plastic Surgery’ (2011).

After touring ‘Neurotica’ throughout 2014-2016, playing venues such as Rebellion Festival (New Band Stage), Nice & Sleazy Festival, Brum Punk Picnic, Star & Garter, Victoria Bikers Pub & Percy’s Café (to name a few), the band headed into the studio to work on their second album.
On September 9th 2018 ‘Exquisite Corpse’ was released through Sleazy Punk Records. In order to promote the album, the band released a ‘Making of’ documentary through the band’s You Tube Channel as well as going on a 5 date album release tour.

Rock´n´rollish metalpunk from Stockholm, Sweden – Hell yeah!
Cobra Cult started out as a project when singer/guitar player Johanna Lindhult (ex Ordogs) and bass player Thomas Jonsson (ex Circle of Chaos) started to wright songs together in the summer of 2015. During the autumn they called up hard hitting drummer Carl Johan “Sillen” Sillén (ex Slowlife) and asked if he would be interested in getting together and jam some of the songs. Already at the first jam the chemistry was there so Oskar Viklund (ex Savage Skülls) was invited to handle the guitar. During the spring of 2016 the band recorded two songs “Forever faster” and “Die!” with Linus Nirbrant (This Ending, A Canorous Quintet) at Audiogrind Studios and in August the same year the band played the first live show. In February 2017 the band entered the legendary Sunlight Studio to record the 4-track EP “The Sunlight Tapes” with legend Tomas Skogsberg. During that period Magnus Palm (The Stickshifters) joined the band as the new guitar player. During 2017 Cobra Cult also did the first gig abroad at the Bremer Metal Festival in Bremen, Germany. On November the 6th, 2018 the self-titled debut album was released. The album was recorded and mixed by Tomas Skogsberg once again and mastered by Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust. Cobra Cult is based in Stockholm, Sweden and the music is described as “Rock´n´rollish metalpunk”. For fans of The Misfits, Monster Magnet and L7.
