TIMELINE

Cobra Starshipbutton.gif (123 bytes) Cobra Starship hail from New York and consists of Gabe Saporta on lead vocals, Ryland Blackinton on guitar, Alex Suarez on bass, Nate Novarro on drums, and Victoria Asher on keytar. The group came together after Saporta dissolved his previous group 'Midtown' with Novarro joining in 2005, and Suarez and Blackinton joining in 2006. Asher replaced Elisa Schwartz on the keytar in 2007. Corey Apar of AllMusic.com sums up the legend of the band's name best in their biography of Cobra Starship: "As the legend of Cobra Starship would have it, frontman Gabe Saporta fled into the deserts of Arizona one day to find the true meaning of his existence away from his emo-rock band, Midtown. Saporta spent days and nights pondering life, mysterious lights constantly plaguing the nighttime sky above him. One distinct night, the lights became so mesmerizing that Gabe became catatonic and started levitating into the air. A snake suddenly came out of nowhere, bit his neck, and he awoke to find a talking cobra from the future nursing his wounds. This enigmatic cobra went on to explain the end of the world (no salvation for anyone) and disclosed Gabe's purpose in life — to ensure that mankind went out in style. As the cobra revealed, Gabe must complete this 'by teaching hipsters to not take themselves so seriously and by telling emo kids to stop being pussies.' Hence, Cobra Starship were born...uh, back in New York." Apar went on to report their name is "...from words written on the back of Saporta's favorite vintage jacket..."
