New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Cobalt & the Hired Guns Official Website)
Friends since they were just little buckaroos, the boys of Chicago's Cobalt & the Hired Guns have always aspired to create an album to match their rambunctious live shows. That album, Everybody Wins!, has arrived.
Everybody Wins! follows 2008's acclaimed debut Jump the Fence and aims for the rafters with a cherry bomb explosion of poppy punk, barroom ballads, power pop, Ska, horny rock and good humor. First single "Like You Like Me Like Me" was performed live on WGN-TV's Midday News and album track "Leaving" was featured on WXRT's Local Anesthetic.
Cobalt & the Hired Guns have shared the stage with the likes of Dashboard Confessional, Ha Ha Tonka, The Avett Brothers
Radio. The band celebrated the release of Everybody Wins! with a headlining show at Metro Chicago
on Saturday, June 16 and have been invited to perform at the Detroit stop of the Van's Warped Tour 2012.
