Stoner rock band Nebula was formed in Los Angeles, California in 1997. Founded by guitarist Eddie Glass and drummer Ruben Romano after they left Fu Manchu, they recruited bassist Mark Abshire before recording the split release Vulcan Bomber / Aquasphere with fellow stoners That’s All Folks! Their first releases on their own were EPs Let It Burn EP (1998) and Sun Creature (1999), which was released prior to the band signing with Sub Pop Records. Nebula released their debut album, To the Center, in 1999, which was followed by 2001’s Charged. Nebula left Sub Pop by the time Atomic Ritual was released in 2008, which was the first of two albums released for the Liquor and Poker label. However, bassist Mark Abshire left the band and was eventually replaced by Tom Davies. After two more albums – Apollo (2006) and Heavy Psych (2009) – Nebula went on indefinite hiatus and the band members pursued other musical projects. In 2017, Eddie Glass revived the band with Davis on bass and Michael Amster on drums and released the albums Holy Shit (2019) and Transmission from Mothership Earth (2022). Tragedy struck the band when leukemia took the life of bassist Tom Davies on September 5, 2023. Ranch Sironi, who had briefly played with the group in 2019, became Davis’ permanent replacement in 2023. Tragedy hit the band again when Sironi was found dead on June 5, 2024, while band was on tour in Italy.
