Since their formation in 1995, SUBARACHNOID SPACE has evolved into one of the preeminent navigators within the realms of psychotropic underground rock and have firmly established themselves alongside the brightest stars in the constellation of contemporary acid rock.
Playing a form of lysergic and almost entirely instrumental rock that draws its DNA from the sounds of classic Krautrock, prog, long-form improvisation and metallic heaviness, SUBARACHNOID SPACE has attracted a fervent and dedicated following over the past decade around albums on established independent labels such as Relapse Records and Strange Attractors Audio House. They've delivered their ominous, ethereal riffage, soaring fx-laden guitars and pulsating rhythmic propulsion on the road with numerous tours and festival appearances, including multiple stints across the U.S., three appearances at the legendary psych-rock festival Terrastock, and a tour of Japan, and has performed alongside Acid Mothers Temple, Khanate, Wolf Eyes, YOB, Sunn O))), Danava, Red Sparowes, Boris, Lightning Bolt, These Arms Are Snakes, Master Musicians Of Bukkake, Ludicra and countless more.
SUBARACHNOID SPACE shall return with 'Eight Bells' on September 22, 2009 via Crucial Blast. The band's first new release since 2005's 'The Red Veil', 'Eight Bells' is the newest chapter in their continually evolving vision of music as ecstatic ritual. The recording features a new lineup of Daniel Barone, Melynda Jackson, Lauren K. Newman and Daniel Osborne and was produced by Steven Wray Lobdell who also performs on the album. 'Eight Bells' continues in a similar heavy lysergic vein as their last couple of post-Relapse albums, fusing wicked metallic crunch with celebratory sky-streaking guitar freak-outs and some of the band's most narcotized jamming yet. The album features five songs and bears stunning new artwork from Stephen Kasner.
A full US tour is currently being locked down and will be announced shortly!
