Nebula was a psychedelic stoner rock band, formed by guitarist Eddie Glass and drummer Ruben Romano after departing from Fu Manchu in 1997. Rob Oswald later replaced Ruben Romano on drums in 2007.

They were joined on bass by Mark Abshire until he left during the recording of Atomic Ritual which was produced by well known desert rocker Chris Goss and released in 2003. Simon Moon stepped in until a final replacement was found in Tom Davies. Atomic Ritual was released to warm critical praise, with AMG calling Nebula a "hard-working power trio [that] sounds like it has been hanging out in the garage since 1973, blissfully unaware of the changing world outside. Which is definitely to its benefit [...]". [1]

Their record Apollo saw release in the US on February 21, 2006. The band went on tour to promote the album, with the latest leg to Europe finishing in May 2006 in Switzerland. During this leg of the tour, they have been accompanied by The Sword from Texas.

The song "Giant" is featured in the soundtrack of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 and NHL 2K7, and the song "So It Goes" appears in Tony Hawk's Underground 2.

In August 2009, La Otracina's Adam Kriney was recruited to tour with the band following the departure of drummer Rob Oswald, however he announced his departure not long after in January 2010. As of February 2010, Jimmy Sweet has been recruited to fill the empty drum stool. As of March 19, 2010 Nebula disbanded for unspecified reasons. The remainder of the tour has been cancelled.
