Cobra Starship -- the new band led by former Midtown frontman Gabe Saporta -- has unveiled plans to join the line-up of MTV2's upcoming "Welcome To The Universe Tour." The trek will follow the release of the band's much-anticipated debut album, "While the City Sleeps, We Rule the Streets," which will arrive in stores on October 10th.

The "Welcome To The Universe Tour" -- part of the "MTV2 $2 Bill Presents" series -- is slated to hit the road on October 17th at the Myth in Minneapolis, then travel the U.S. through a November 25th finale at the Wiltern LG in Los Angeles. In addition to Cobra Starship, the multi-band trek will feature performances by 30 Seconds To Mars and Head Automatica, with an array of exciting new rock outfits -- including Rock Kills Kid, Pink Spiders, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and Men, Women and Children -- joining the bill on select dates.

Prior to the MTV2 itinerary, Cobra Starship is embarking on its debut U.S. tour, accompanying Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen's own Gym Class Heroes on their "Jerry's Kids Short Bus Tour '06." The trek kicks off today, September 14th, at the Icon in Buffalo, New York, and crosses the country with dates continuing through an October 12th show at Jillian's in Las Vegas, Nevada. Cobra Starship will then appear at the eagerly awaited Bamboozle Left extravaganza, slated for Sunday, October 15th, at Cal Poly Pomona Athletic Field in Pomona, California. The band joins an incredible festival line-up that comprises Brand New, Thrice, 30 Seconds To Mars, and many more.
