Nebula are a psychedelic/stoner rock band from Whittier, California. Active between 1997 and 2010 this group was a key player in the late 90s stoner rock scene, releasing five studio albums among a host of other releases. The band had been on an indefinite hiatus since 2010 but are not considered to be "broken up". Since 2017 they have re-formed and upon a host of reissues and festival appearances, had put out a sixth studio album.

HistoryEdit

To The Center and Charged (1997 - 2002)Edit

Atomic Ritual and Apollo (2003 - 2008)Edit

Heavy Psych and Dissolution (2009 - 2010)Edit

Holy Shit (2017 - Present)Edit

Nebula was formed by guitarist Eddie Glass and drummer Ruben Romano upon departing Fu Manchu in 1997. Mark Abshire soon joined as the band's original bassist.

Abshire remained with the band until the recording of Atomic Ritual (2003) which was produced by Chris Goss of Kyuss fame. Dennis Wilson & Simon Moon (Eddie Glass) stepped in as bassists until a more permanent replacement was found in Tom Davies. Atomic Ritual was released to warm critical praise, with AMG calling Nebula a "hard-working power trio [that] sounds like it has been hanging out in the garage since 1973, blissfully unaware of the changing world outside. Which is definitely to its benefit". Rob Oswald replaced founding member Ruben Romano on drums in 2007.

In August 2009, Adam Kriney, formerly of La Otracina, was recruited to replace departing drummer Oswald, though he too announced his departure in January 2010 and was replaced by Jimmy Sweet. In early 2010, Nebula announced that it was going on an indefinite hiatus. Glass later explained that "things started getting a bit rough with the touring and I got sick of it", though Nebula were merely "taking a break for a while" and not breaking up.

On 15 September 2017 the band announced they were reuniting with a new studio album in 2018 along with a tour of Europe though specific details have yet to be announced. Along with a host of reissues in 2017 it would be announced that on 7 March 2019 that Nebula had a new album finished and set for a June release via Heavy Psych Sounds.[1] On 4 April 2019 the band would announce the new album would be titled Holy Shit.
