The official video for “You Don’t Know”, a brand new song from Canadian hard rockers KOBRA AND THE LOTUS, can be seen below. The track is taken from the band’s new album, “Prevail I”, which will be released on May 12 via Napalm Records. The disc was produced by Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, AMARANTHE, EPICA) and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Ted Jensen.
Frontwoman Kobra Paige states about “You Don’t Know”: “To be alive brings many great things, but among those things includes great suffering. It’s painful to feel backed into a corner, judged, misunderstood for who we really are. We can never really know a person until we have seen their point of view, crawled into their skin, and walked a mile in their shoes, but that will never happen. This is the anthem for the man, the woman, the human, navigating their life the best way they can. After all, ‘You don’t know what it’s like to be me!'”
“Prevail I” track listing:
03. You Don’t Know
04. Specimen X (Mortal Chamber)
05. Light Me Up
06. Manifest Destiny
08. Check The Phyrg
09. Hell On Earth
Kobra previously stated about the story of “Prevail I”, the band’s most ambitious effort to date: “When we are born, we are innocent, pure, and unshaped. This mandala signifies a human at the beginning of its journey. Unscathed and beautiful, the mandala is each and every one of us. As this album unfolds, you will notice it’s more than just music. ‘Prevail I’ is a story of visceral truth and I believe, if we’re really being honest with ourselves, everyone will find their story within it. After all, the battles may differ, but we all started as the same mandala and we are more relatable than we’d like to admit. Our only wish is that you may enjoy the freaking crap out of this album and find comfort in realizing you’re not alone.”
Evolution is inevitable and KOBRA AND THE LOTUS has delivered its most powerful album to date, “Prevail I”, with “Prevail II” to complete the story in the not-too-distant future.
