KOBRA AND THE LOTUS Vocalist KOBRA PAIGE Given Clean Bill Of Health After Battle With Lyme Disease
February 8, 2018, 13 days ago
Kobra And The Lotus vocalist Kobra Paige has checked in with the following update:
"It's been a pretty challenging couple weeks, but amongst the transitions and obstacles I received a really great gift yesterday. After the passing of our family dog, I was given the big A-ok that my battle with Lyme disease is coming to an end and I can officially, safely have children. For me, this is a dream come true. I think it's ironic that both Prevail albums were made when I was at my height in illness. I laid down on the studio floor all the time to rest. Had a chronic sore throat, fatigued to the core, muscles ripping from small movements, terrible joint pain, brain fog, you name it. Willpower can push you through a lot. No one (including my band) but my family really knew what I was going through and I spent the following months after in a clinic, all alone, treating it aggressively before our fall tour. We still don't understand Lyme completely but much of my family has been severely affected by it, and all we know is when you kill most of it, you start getting your life back. I was very lucky they supported me through the treatment. Next week I will finally be taking the IV port out of my heart as I will no longer be needing it. Don't worry, the kids aren't happening soon, lots of rockin to do, but they will be a part of my future."
Kobra And The Lotus kept their word and will soon deliver the second part of their opus magnum one year after the successful release of rock juggernaut Prevail I.
Prevail II is the proverbial yang to the yin and continues right where Kobra And The Lotus left off in 2017. Set for a release on April 27th with Napalm Records, the band has now unveiled the cover artwork and track listing for their hotly anticipated Prevail II.
Says vocalist Kobra Paige: "Humanity. One of the greatest struggles of our human existence is to retain it. This sequel album takes a deeper dive into the darkness of our psyche and explores the personal torment and struggle we inflict upon ourselves, one another, and the earth. It has become common place for people to give up on themselves and lose their belief in their abilities and self-worth. This in turn affects our daily actions/behaviour. We are a cripplingly, self-harming species BUT we are also profoundly capable beings of altruism, evolution, and positivity. This album will close the 'Prevail' double sequel on the lightest of all notes by acknowledging that every single person has a desire to be and deserves to be truly seen, loved, and heard. When the ignorance is cleared, we can recognize that we are all in this together."
