Welcome to the Cobra Skulls Wiki!

Cobra Skulls were a punk rock band from Reno, Nevada who are signed to Fat Wreck Chords.

Cobra Skulls were formed in Reno, NV in 2005 by Devin Peralta (bass, vocals), Charlie Parker (guitar) and Chad Cleveland (drums). They released an EP titled Draw Muhammad in 2006. The EP caught the attention of Red Scare Industries who signed the band and released their debut album Sitting Army in 2007. They released a 7" titled Never Be a Machine in 2008.

To promote the album the band went on tour with Against Me!, Mad Caddies, and The Loved Ones, opening shows for them. During the 2007 tour the band added a second guitarist Adam Beck.

On August 20, 2008, the band announced they had parted ways with guitarist Charlie Parker.

Their second album American Rubicon was released in 2009. Leading up to its release the band participated in the Old Skars and Upstarts Tour with Anti-Nowhere League and Duane Peters. Followed by a west coast tour opening for The Lawrence Arms and Teenage Bottlerocket.

The band signed with Fat Wreck Chords in March 2010. Around this time Chad Cleveland left the band and was replaced by drummer Luke Swarm.

On September 30, 2010, they released a cover of "Give you Nothing" by Bad Religion on their MySpace, featuring Fat Mike of NOFX for the Bad Religion tribute album "Germs Of Perfection."

Two more albums, Bringing The War Home and Agitations followed in 2011.

In 2012, the band parted ways with guitarist Adam Beck, who was replaced by former Nothington bassist Tony Teixeira. In October 2012, the band released the "Eagle Eyes" 7-inch with Fat Wreck Chords, and also premiered a video for the title-track.

On 20th December 2013 the band announced via Fat Wreck Chords that they may be calling it a day.
