Who’s in it? Gabe Saporta (from the pop-punk band Midtown), Ryland Blackinton & Alex Suarez (This Is Ivy League), Victoria Asher, Nate Novarro (Armor For Sleep)
Years active: 2003-2012
How different is it from his day job? Extremely different, in that one of Starship’s songs featured vocals from Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester. Oh, and the band did the theme song for Snakes on a Plane.
Critical reception: “The hooks here are undeniably sharp — especially on ”#1Nite (One Night),” which swipes the melody from Usher’s ”DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love.” But Cobra were more fun as party crashers than they are as VIPs.”—Entertainment Weekly
Was it worth the distraction? Besides cribbing the Fall Out Boy “let’s throw darts at notecards with words on them and name our songs that way” titling method, Cobra Starship has actually produced some half-decent pop songs. Why not?
I would love to update this site BUT there are like NO news about Gabe or Cobra Starship at all. It’s really quiet around Gabe and the Band. I’m wondering when the big announcement about Cobra Starship (which Pete hinted in an Interview) will be made…
