I found a really interesting ‘press release’ about artists selling singles but not albums on gainesville.com. Next to Flo Rida, Bruno Mars, Rihanna and many other popular artists they mentioned Cobra Starship and a quote from Gabe.

“If you used to have a big single, you would sell a million albums, and if you sell a million albums and you’re a band, you can probably not have to work for a couple years. We don’t have that luxury,” said Cobra Starship’s lead singer Gabe Saporta.

Cobra Starship had a top 10 hit with the double platinum dance jam “You Make Me Feel …,” but their latest album debuted at No. 50 and has sold a mere 33,000 units.

I got contacted by Gabe’s assistent Caiti about the new official Cobra Starship Fanclub, on which they will be working in the next months!
The club will be FREE, not like ‘CobraCrew’ back in 2009.

And now it’s YOUR turn!

The Cobras want your idea about how the Club should be! So what would you like to see on a Fanclub, what would you like to get? Meet and Greets, Contests, Chats and so on, just tell me! Every suggestion will be send to Caiti and she will give it to Gabe and the Cobras!

So leave a comment below, tweet me your idea @UltimateGabeS, send me a message on Facebook or Tumblr – if you don’t want anyone to read what you want on the Fanclub. You can also send me an Email by using the Form you can find under ‘contact us’!

PLEASE DO IT! Because if you don’t send your idea, don’t even think about complaining about the Club not being ‘perfect’ enough ;)

Gabe Saporta and Co. prove to MTV News that they bring the party.

An interview with Cobra Starship ought to come with a warning: Once the cameras start recording, throw away anything you’d previously prepared, because Gabe Saporta and Co. are card-carrying hams.

Anyone who’s familiar with members Ryland Blackinton and Alex Suarez’s takes as “Dick Bagwell” and “Vincent Twice (Vincent Twice),” respectively, in our Musical March Madness videos of years past knows how invested they can become in adopted personages (to say nothing of Blackinton’s other alias, Guy Ripley), but I was just as happy to learn that their authentic selves were just as animated. Between us: Now that I’ve gotten a bit of distance from the situation, I can also admit that as a female who grew up in early aughts Manhattan, I was pretty excited to go out on a (albeit, synthesized reality) date with the lead singer of my beloved Midtown — the band which upon its demise was how Cobra Starship was born.

“I needed a band and … you were like the first people I asked,” Saporta said, regarding his reaching out to Suarez and Blackinton, who were once in a band together called This is Ivy League.

Suarez added, “Gabe was like, ‘Hey, look, I’m starting this new band. You guys should come and be a part of it. I would love to have you guys. I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Not willing to let go of the good thing his band with Blackinton amounted to, “[Suarez] said no at first,” Saporta solemnly remembered about his first shot at getting a new band together.

Eventually, the pair obviously came around, and alongside Victoria Asher and Nate Novarro, Starship have become a pop-rock behemoth, known for big choruses and dance floor-ready tracks. So, it only made sense to take Suarez and Saporta to the Village Party Store on our First Date. Surely, the makers of party music would feel at home at the party store, right?

My suspicions were confirmed. And between learning how to host a “gritty” party to being branded with a Cobra temporary tattoo down my right forearm, it’s safe to say that the group brings the party wherever they go.
