A cross-Canada tour in support of their new album will bring a Mexican alternative rock band to Nanaimo.
Lost Nebula will play at the Globe Hotel on Saturday August 6, as their final stop.
According to a statement from their tour, the band’s new album, Created in the Image of God – released on July 15 – is their fourth and “shows a distinct maturity without losing the desire to try new things”.
The band’s approach to metal, which infuses melodic choruses with “hardcore” breakdowns, growls and clean vocals, also utilizes elements of pop, alternative metal and progressive rock. In their songs, they address themes of discrimination, dehumanization and growing addiction to technology.
“All music created by Lost Nebula is a reference to human emotions and feelings…” the statement noted. “It ranges from melodic progressive metal to power ballad, which is the band’s distinctive sound. Shrill guitars and bass, tight and complex rhythm parts with warm female vocals and something never done before in the band, growl vocals added to one of the singles.
The band entered Created in the Image of God with an open mind to break down boundaries and take a closer look at the complexity of progressive rock in hopes of repackaging the genre into a “more commercial version”.
Lost Nebula regards the album as its most original and pure form with the ambition to impress old fans and captivate new ones.
The band promises to bring a unique show to every venue during their tour, regardless of venue size, and will deliver an immersive, memorable and epic experience, the statement said.
Tickets for the August 6 show will be available at the door.
