Cobra – Rough Riding Europe Tour 2015
Heavy Metal act from Peru strikes Europe for the first time.
Who we are:
Warriors of the underground! We are Cobra, a five-pieced heavy metal band based in Lima, Peru.
With almost ten years of existence, a couple of demo tapes, two full lenght albums “Lethal Stike” and “To Hell”, touring around Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia, sharing stage with glorious acts such as Overkill, Whiplash, Sabbat, Satan, Bulldozer, Artillery and Onslaught; now we have the opportunity to take a big step in our carreer and hit Europe.
In February of last year, we received the invitation to one of the most important metal festivals in the world: Keep It True Festival. We are the first band from Latin America to perform at this show.
After this notice, we started to get mails from different countries with gig offers around Europe, so we decided to take this chance and organize what it’s going to be our first European tour. This is the third time in history that a metal act from Peru tours around Eruope.
As an independent band, we don’t have a big sponsorship that covers all the costs of a tour, so we are the ones that are running with all the expenses: plane tickets, van rental, gas, tolls, etc.
We’ve received the support from our German label Ván Records, from the booking agency Swamp Booking and from the promoters of the shows in order to have the propper documentation to get the Schengen visa. Now we need the support from the heavy metal maniacs around the world to reach this goal.
Every donation in this campaign is very important for us because it will help us to cover the costs that a propper tour implicates.
About Rough Riding Europe Tour 2015:
- One month on the road between Germany, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Spain and France.

We need to collect at least €2,000 to cover the following costs:

Rewards for your support:
Each person who backs this campaign will receive a reward according to the amount of money they donate. We want you to be part of this experience and we want you to know it.
Having a well-done tour is an open gate for more Peruvian metal bands to have the chance to tour across Europe and develop a strong international music scene.
Each action is meaningful:
We know better than anyone that not everyone can be a backer in this kind of projects. If this is your case, we will be very grateful if you can help us in a useful way: spread the word around and generate buzz between your friends, contacts and people who might be intersted. You can use all the social media channels you want and also the Indiegogo sharing tools.
