Here's some advance press for Tied and True

"This instantly became one of my favorite albums of the year...A knockout." USA Today

"On Tied and True the Cobras stake a claim as the most intuitive and soulful garage band on the planet." Brian Baker Amplifier

"Sure, it's red-blooded and raw, but it;s also as beautiful as it is brassy. In other words, bad girls make good." Tim Mohr Playboy

"...bold stylists of unimpeachable prowess, the Cobras inhabit the material, systematically erasing the line between homage and interpretation." Fred Mills Harp

"By stripping their music of pretensions and instead heaping on enough attitude to make Gene Vincent proud, the Cobras do the unthinkable: make rock ’n’ roll simple, fun and irresponsible. And in the 21st century, that’s damn hard to do without seeming horribly self-conscious." Bruce Miller Magnet
