Australian punk act Under The Influence (UTI) are set to drop their new single Cobra Spit via Riot Records on the 23rd March.
Cobra Spit is another ferocious blast of metallic hardcore punk. Have you felt someone’s narcissistic venom seep through your skin and into your brain, corrupting your thoughts to the point of nearly sending you insane? Hopefully not. Well, this is a song about the manipulation of one’s better judgement by the narcissistic input of others around you. Don’t let their venom inside. Be yourself, trust yourself, Know your worth.
Cobra Spit is the follow up to is the follow up to recent singles Moon Flavoured Magnets, Body Parts and the acoustic version of fan favourite Propaganda Leaks. With each release Under The Influence (UTI) continue to grow their fanbase as they establish themselves as one of Australia’s leading Punk Acts.

Nineteen years ago in a garage in Dapto (South of Sydney, Australia) three high school friends with a passion for punk music and surfing, formed the band Under the Influence. UTI played as a 3 piece around the local music scene with original member Shane Kinerson (Kino) doing main vocals and drumming. On bass was Luke Malone (Moey) and on lead guitar was former member Glen Robinson. In 2009 after several line-up changes, Chris Curci joined on bass and Moey jumped on lead guitar. UTI continued playing this line up for the next few years and recorded the album Wasted Youth.
With solid feedback from Wasted Youth, Kino decided to step up his singing game and handed over the drum roll (pun intended) to Daniel Southern (Chicken Wing). Going through UTI’s discography you can hear the focus on improving the music and their growth as a band, starting from street punk influences, to heavy punk hardcore. If you have seen or heard under the influence with this high energy combination you will know they are dedicated to the music, nothing is held back and it is raw and intense.
UTI released their killer debut album in June 2019 on Riot Records ‘Exchange My Brain’ with their first single Propaganda Leaks gaining critical acclaim across Australia and Europe.
