The hard-edged and rapid-fire punk rock of Reno, Nevada's Cobra Skulls was born in January 2004. Drummer Chad Cleveland, singer and bassist Devin Peralta, and guitarist Charlie Parker had met a few years prior while they were students at the University of Nevada, and in time, they banded together around a shared love of groups like 7 Seconds, NOFX and Bad Religion. The Eat Your Babies demo arrived first before the guys split a seven-inch in 2006 with local crew Beercan! on Humaniterrorist Records. That same year, the band also issued an EP entitled Draw Muhammad, and that record, coupled with frequent gigs around town, had Cobra Skulls starting to turn a few heads in local dives. Ultimately, they caught the ear of Red Scare Industries, who signed them up in early 2007 and by mid-year issued their debut full-length, Sitting Army, which proved to be an aggressive and incisive display of punk fervor that mixed the sounds of Against Me! and the Living End with the Clash and TSOL. Second guitarist Adam Beck was added during subsequent supporting tour dates, including shows with bands like the Loved Ones and the aforementioned Against Me!.
