TIDES FROM NEBULA
The band Tides From Nebula formed at the beginning of 2008. In one year they wrote 50 minutes of energetic, ambient and, most importantly, emotional instrumental guitar music. This was the foundation of their debut album.
‘Aura’ was released in March 2009 and immediately received positive attention and enthusiasm from critics and audiences alike. It received incredibly warm reviews in the Polish and foreign press. The magazine ‘Przekrój’ in their musical summary of the year included TFN in the top 10 Polish debuts of 2009 and ‘Aura’ in the top 10 Polish albums of 2009. ‘Teraz Rock’ declared TFN the 4th best debut in Poland in 2009.
In no time the band became the most important polish post-rock act and one of the best “export goods” in Poland. They have also established themselves as a great live band.
They confirmed their live performance class by winning the two biggest contests for young bands: Neuro Music (Asymmetry Festival) and Before Party (KnockOut Festival).
So far Tides From Nebula have played with such bands as This Will Destroy You (us), Oceansize (uk), Pure Reason Revolution (uk), Ulver (nor), Shrinebuilder (us) and many others. In September 2009 TfN toured around Poland with Caspian (us) and God Is An Astronaut (irl) making that the biggest post-rock event in Poland. Apart from that TFN also played their first European tour consisting of 10 shows in Germany, Austria, France and Belgium. During the fall of 2010 the band successfully toured Poland and Europe for almost 2 months, played almost 40 shows. The amount of people who attended to the shows suprised even the band.
Tides From Nebula’s new album entitled “Earthshine” will be released on May 9th 2011.The writing of material for ‘Earthshine’ was completed in the first half of 2010. During recording to distance them from everyday life the band took to the remote Polish mountains. This new, inspiring environment proved to be the perfect setting to record, resulting in an album filled with emotional, ambient and energetic soundscapes.
‘Earthshine’ was produced by Zbigniew Preisner, renowned as one of the Worlds foremost composers of music for film and theatre. Zbigniew tracked the band down after hearing them on the radio and offered his experience and expertise. An offer that couldn’t be refused or understated ‘Working with such a great composer brought a new perspective to our compositions, Zbigniew’s invaluable experience has certainly enriched us as musicians’ states Maciej. ‘We put our all in to ‘Earthshine’ our very beings, what we have created makes us very proud’
To promote ‘Earthshine’ Tides From Nebula will tour Europe. The first leg will see the band undertake their own headline shows before they join Riverside on tour as their special guests.
“Eternal Movement” is TIDES FROM NEBULA’s 3rd studio album and has been produced by Christer Andre Cederberg, who produced last years ‘Weather Systems’ by Anathema amongst others.
The band locked themselves away in their own studio for six months, focusing 100% on writing new material. The result, an album full of energetic, bright and uplifting tracks inspired by the bands thoughts on existence, consciousness and identity. The album title, ‘Eternal Movement’ is the movement of life, of the World. When we look at things as a microcosm, deep within the atom it’s just energy and therefore movement. All we are, all we see is movement.
The ‘Eternal Movement’ sound is the bands most colourful to date. In their own words: “‘It’s energetic, full of hope and light. It’s has a greater depth of sound as we used several more guitars, different drum kits and far more keyboards than previous albums”.
