NEBULA share first track and details for new studio album 'Holy Shit'; preorders live now on Heavy Psych Sounds Records!
US stoner rock pioneers NEBULA return this June 14th with their first studio album in ten years! Keep your ears and eyes wide open, as Heavy Psych Sounds Records are unveiling a first track and all the juicy details for ‘Holy Shit’ right now!
22 years after their first release and ten years after their last studio album, Nebula are back. And you’re thinking “Holy shit!” right now, you pretty much nailed it. ‘Holy Shit’ is NEBULA’s first LP since 2009’s ‘Heavy Psych’, and it quickly puts to rest the question that’s loomed since guitarist and vocalist Eddie Glass, bassist Tom Davies and drummer Michael Amster announced the band’s reformation in 2017. Nebula are still Nebula.
It’s there in the inimitable space-grunge of “It’s all Over,” or the take-a-drag-and-be-gone “Let’s Get Lost,” or the way “Tomorrow Never Comes” manages to be so, so heavy and laid back at the same time. It’s in the paradise-psych of “Gates of Eden” and even the snoring you hear before the devilish “Man’s Best Friend” kicks in to open the album (the studio couch became a crash spot).

Since the days of 1998’s ‘Let it Burn’ EP and the now-classic ‘To the Center’ debut album, NEBULA have always been just a little more dangerous. Just a little more unhinged. ‘Holy Shit’ shows this front-to-back for the essential part of their character it is, and yet it’s not trying to be anything they’ve done before, whether it’s those early outings or ‘Heavy Psych’ or ‘Charged’ (2001), ‘Apollo’ (2003) or ‘Atomic Ritual’ (2005). It’s a sixth Nebula album — something for which even the most ardent of fans could hardly have hoped.
The basic tracks were done in two days, recorded at Mysterious Mammal Studios in L.A. with Matt Lynch (also of Snail) at the helm. Leads and loops and feedback effects were done live by Glass and Davies as they recorded the basic tracks, just the way they’d do it on stage, and overdubs followed after as needed. A glut of material was produced and whittled down to the core of what you hear here. A sixth NEBULAalbum. And when you hear it, you’ll find yourself saying that title all over again
« Witching Hour is about that magical time of the night when the dark is at its darkest and the moon is big, bold and bright and the general populous is tucked up in bed oblivious to the shenanigans of the marginalised going on all around them, » says bassist Tom Davies.
