In 2006, Saporta, William Beckett of The Academy Is..., Travis Mc Coy of Gym Class Heroes, and Maja Ivarsson of The Sounds appeared on Cobra Starship's first notable single, "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)", and later appeared in a music video for the song.
"After many incredible years, I'm making the difficult decision to close the book on Cobra Starship, Saporta wrote on the band's official Facebook page.
"If you stop reading this now, I want to say thank you if you've ever supported Cobras in any way.
Whether you came to our shows and bought merch, or simply listened to a track and shared it with a friend, you allowed us to live out the most incredible adventure, and I am eternally grateful for that." Saporta also noted how he was leaving performing behind in order to work behind-the-scenes within the business side of things.
"The truth is that there is nothing that I am more passionate about than music.
Victoria Asher replaced the group's original keytarist, Elisa Schwartz. The third Cobra Starship studio album, titled Hot Mess, was released on August 11, 2009.
The album includes the band's hit song "Good Girls Go Bad," which also features vocals by Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester, which was released digitally on May 11, 2009.
Pop-rock group Cobra Starship has officially called it quits following 10 years and four albums according to the band's frontman Gabe Saporta.

The song is also featured on the Cobra Starship album While the City Sleeps, We Rule the Streets.
The official line-up of Cobra Starship is Alex Suarez, Victoria Asher, Nate Novarro, and Ryland Blackinton. The album includes the hit song "Guilty Pleasure" (the video budget was spent on a sports car for the group so they made a 'home edition' video).
