Rock out with your hawk out
COBRAHAWK is a rock & roll band known for driving guitar riffs, pounding drums, matched with raw, powerful vocal melodies. The band began in 2013, playing a multitude of cover tunes under the name of 'Walking Talking Stephen Hawking'. The name was changed to something more PR friendly, and the band began writing original music in the fall of 2014.
After winning 88.1 The 'Burg KCWU's battle of the bands "Burgstock IV", COBRAHAWK was invited to play Chinook Fest 2016. They brought down the house at the after party, with the largest crowd of the night.
Next COBRAHAWK hit the studio.Their first album "Vindictive" was released on March 18, 2017. Based in Ellensburg, COBRAHAWK has been touring Washington state promoting the album.
They took first place in the Yakima Apple Jam battle of the bands on July 4th, 2017. Thousands of people turned up to witness COBRAHAWK's encore performance before the fireworks show.
