Nebula: Five West Coast Shows

NEBULA ANNOUNCES FIVE CALIFORNIA DATES FOR LATE NOV., EARLY DEC.

Nebula
Legendary Los Angeles based rock trio Nebula has announced a set of late November/early December west coast shows, taking place from 11/28-12/05. All dates will be supported by Dusted Angel and Radio Moscow. Nebula released their latest album Heavy Psych in July on Tee Pee Records, and in September completed a U.S. tour with The Entrance Band.

Playing dirty rock and roll and primitive blues, these psychedelic iconoclasts 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 discord of Spaceman 3 and The Velvet Underground.

Nebula Tour Dates
11/28/09 Sat The Blank Club San Jose, CA
11/29/09 Sun Annie's Social Club San Francisco, CA
12/03/09 Thu Kensington Club San Diego, CA
12/04/09 Fri Royal Dive Oceanside, CA
12/05/09 Sat Nomad Gallery Los Angeles, CA

Formed by front man Eddie Glass upon the split of Fu Manchu 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 Heavy Psych. The new line up includes Eddie Glass on guitar/vocals, Tom Davies on bass/vocals, and Rob Oswald 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 Nebula's reputation as one of rock's brightest stars; in this galaxy or any other.

Praise for Heavy Psych

"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
