Rock fans around the globe can click here to check out the premiere of Canadian explosive hard rockers KOBRA AND THE LOTUS' brand new track "The Spirit Of Radio" today. The song is, of course, a cover version of Canadian rock legends RUSH's iconic track and is taken from the forthcoming EP, Words Of The Prophets. Due out on August 28th worldwide, the Words Of The Prophets EP (Titan Music) features cover songs of great Canadian artists (see below for the track listing); it was produced by the Grammy-nominated Johnny K (MEGADETH, DISTURBED, THREE DOORS DOWN). The EP can be pre-ordered now HERE. Check out the sexy, vintage glam-inspired video for "Black Velvet" from the EP on KNAC.COM HERE.

Of their version of "The Spirit Of Radio", frontwoman Kobra Paige commented, ""There's no prouder moment than to take on the challenge of covering one of the greatest bands of all time. Few bands have accomplished what RUSH has accomplished, and there will never be another band like them. They opened the door and shaped the way for all musicians to be more creative and brave with their music and they did it with unrelenting confidence and skill. It is with great honour and respect that we reinforce the message of these virtuosic music monsters and the importance of "The Spirit Of Radio"." KOBRA AND THE LOTUS are currently on tour in the United States; please see below for the remaining tour dates.

Known for supporting legendary bands KISS and DEF LEPPARD on KISS' massive 40th Anniversary North American tour last summer, Canada's explosive hard rockers KOBRA AND THE LOTUS' most recent album, High Priestess (Titan Music), was also produced by Johnny K and delivers a blend of fiery vocals (courtesy of lead singer Kobra Paige), heavy riff-laden melodies and ferocious musicianship.

Led by frontwoman, the classically-trained vocal powerhouse and Calgary native, Kobra Paige, KOBRA AND THE LOTUS have been making a name for themselves worldwide with extensive touring and two well-received albums. KOBRA AND THE LOTUS have already played the main stage at such massive European festivals as the UK's Download, Sonisphere (Spain), Hellfest (France), Gods Of Metal (Italy), Bloodstock (UK) and more. The band has also supported the likes of JUDAS PRIEST on tour.
