Space Nelson's unique sound has been best described as 'melodic hard rock with a progressive edge.' The Detroit four piece, which likes to explore the boundaries of syncopation and timing, delivers driving rhythms and catchy hooks with skill and emotion. Influences spanning Rush, Tool, King's X can be heard on their latest release, 'Don't Panic.' Space Nelson's dynamic live stage show has landed them gigs at premier national venues including St. Andrew's Hall, Clutch Cargos, the Royal Oak Music Theater, Majestic Theater, Emerald Theater, Shelter, and Magic Bag. The band was twice selected by the Ernie Ball Co. To represent the Detroit music scene at the 2000 & 2001Vans Warped Tour, and they have recently opened for national acts including King's X, Symphony X, Gary Hoey, and The Devin Townsend Band. As an independent band, Space Nelson has made major headway with corporate radio. Tracks from "Evil Computer" are weekly aired on Detroit's most popular morning show, WRIF's Drew & Mike Show, and the band won The Drive 106.7's Battle of the Bands competition thanks to listener votes. Additionally, Space Nelson has been featured as in-studio guests on both of Detroit's largest rock stations, 89X and WRIF, and is the only indi act in town that can claim simultaneous airplay on both stations. Formed in 1996, the band has three past releases: 'Cutting Edge Pinball' (1997), "Slackjawed' (1999), and "Evil Computer from the Future" (2002). Their current release, 'Don't Panic' (2005), displays the band's progression as songwriters and showcases their individual talents. The lineup of Piasentin, Fischer, Lock, and Hopersberger, has been together since 2000. ---------------- Review excerpts for 'Don't Panic': 'This is a very strong album that mixes the genres of neo-prog and melodic rock extremely well...I am surprised to see that they are yet unsigned.' - Feedback fanzine 'Space Nelson is a fantastic band that helps bridge a gap between the modern rock and progressive rock worlds.
