Cobra Starship stopped by the J-14 offices last week and I had a total blast with them! You have to check out theses crazy facts about they dished to me about Leighton Meester, Twilight, and more!
Lead singer Gabe is a HUGE Gossip Girl fan. While they didn't chat with Leighton Meester about the show (Ryland says Leighton did tease Gabe for being a GG "fanboy"), they loved working with her in their "Good Girls Go Bad" video. Bassist Ryland called her "an absolute professional," while Gabe let us in on a little secret from the video. "The legs walking over us aren't Leighton's!" Gabe reveals.
The boys haven't read any of the Twilight books, but Ryland did ask if I was a vampire (I had a lovely Garfield band-aid from giving blood that day). Don't worry, J-14ers -- I told them about Edwards sparkling abilities and pointed out each of the Twilight hotties to them.
Guitarist Alex's fave song off of Hot Mess is the first track, "Nice Guys Finish Last." Gabe tells us the band tends to think up song titles first and writes lyrics around them.
Everyone on their record label, Decaydence, are friends, but they admit that they don't really sound like the other bands despite being all lumped together. Cobra is proud of their more electronic sound.
Ashley Tisdale has a track on her CD, Guilty Pleasure, called "Hot Mess" -- both titles are also songs off Cobra Starship's! Gabe called this out to her on Ash's Twitter, but Gabe revealed to us exclusively that as of July 8, she hadn't responded to him yet.
What would Gabe's perfect girl be like? "A hot mess!" he jokingly said. Ryland admits that Gabe does seem to get all the ladies.
Are you excited for Cobra's new album like I am? Why or why not?
