Pretoria-based progressive deathcore titans, Human Nebula are set to release their blistering new single and video for “Andromeda” on March 6, 2020. The track features a guest appearance from Lwandile Prusent (Vulvodynia, Crayon, Technopath & XavlegbmaofffassssitimiwoamndutroabcwapwaeiippohfffX)

Gareth Reed (Vocalist) states that, “‘Andromeda’ has a very deep and personal meaning to me about losing someone I loved very much. How well we knew each others desires and guarded each others secrets. Like the story, I felt I had abandoned her (‘Andromeda’) to a world of monsters. It speaks about the pain I felt looking at her face after she passed, and the guilt I live with. The choruses however sing about finding the strength to live life in honour of her memory and what it takes to piece your life back together. It’s a long way from over, but ‘Andromeda’ gets me through most days. If you can relate in any way, I sincerely hope the song can help you through even if it’s just a little.”

Timothy James Lotter (Guitars) adds that, “On the song as a whole, for me personally ‘Andromeda’ was an exploration of how far we can push the boundaries of our technical and song writing abilities as a band and a big step in the evolution of our sound. It also features one of my all time favourite guitar solos by the phenomenal Lwandile Prusent.”

”It’s been an absolute blast working with the guys from Human Nebula,” says Lwandile Prusent. “I’m so honoured they chose me to feature on ‘Andromeda’! It’s so refreshing to see such a hard working local band in this scene and I think it’s not a stretch to say that their future is super bright. I love the Nebula boys to death and I hope everyone digs the new video!”

”‘Andromeda’ still blows me away sometimes,” comments Kyle Botha (Guitars). “I remember my first thought after hearing Tim play the main riff being “how the hell are we going to pull this off”. ‘Andromeda’ really challenged and made me better in more ways than one, such as my skill set as a guitarist; writer; producer and I will be forever in your debt ‘Andromeda’.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
