Nebula will embark on a full US Tour beginning on March 16th in Houston, TX. The band will also be appearing at SXSW and will be performing at the recently announced Tee Pee Records Showcase . Tee Pee Records labelmates Quest For Fire will support the band on the first leg and The Willowz and Lionize will support Nebula on the second leg of the tour. Nebula is currently in the midst of a UK/European tour. All tour dates are available below.
In conjunction with the tour Tee Pee Records will release a limited ediiton split 7″ featuring brand new tracks from Nebula and Quest For Fire. The 7″ will be limited to 1000 copies on color vinyl. Artwork was done by Andre Ethier (The Deadly Snakes) and is available for viewing below. Release date is set for March 23rd and will be available on the bands upcoming US Tour and SXSW appearances.
Brooklyn Vegan is currently streaming the brand new Nebula track “The Perfect Rapture” off of the soon to be released 7″:
“This is one of those records that makes you want to throw out every other record you’ve listened to, grow your hair to your elbows, and start all over again” – NME
“Nebula collapses a long lineage of heaviosity in its gravitational pull: Blue Cheer, the MC5, the Stooges, early Sabbath, mid-Seventies hard rock, sludge-era Black Flag, and mentors Mudhoney” – Revolver
Playing dirty rock and roll and primitive blues, psychedelic iconoclasts Nebula have earned a reputation as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the Los Angeles underground rock scene of the last two decades.
With a penchant for Fuzz-wah pedals, wild drums and debauchery, Nebula plays feedback-heavy, guitar-driven psychedelic rock in the tradition of The Stooges, MC5, Jimi Hendrix, and Cream– laced with the spaced out sounds and dischord of Spaceman 3 and The Velvet Underground.
Formed by frontman Eddie Glass out of the ashes of Fu Manchu upon the bandÂ’s split in 1997, Nebula toured relentlessly in North America, Europe, Japan and Australia, playing alongside bands like Mudhoney, Iggy and the Stooges, Local H, The Hellacoptors and Queens of the Stone Age.
Nebula quickly gained a cult following in the burgeoning psych scene that was taking root in their hometown of Los Angeles and in music scenes abroad, paving the way for bands like Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dead Meadow, Black Angels, and Wolfmother. In 2009, Nebula joined Tee Pee Records for the release of their latest LP, Heavy Psych. The new line up includes Eddie Glass on guitar/vox, Tom Davies (bass/vox), and Jimmy Sweet on drums.
Combining the combustibility of the sun with the mysticism of the moon, Heavy Psych lives up to its name, no matter your preferred definition, and reaffirms NebulaÂ’s reputation as one of rock’s brightest stars Â– in this galaxy or any other.
