Nubia is a young band from Lucerne Switzerland. Their musical style is probably best described as Djent/Progressive Metal.
Nubia was founded in 2016 as a three piece instrumental Band, with Michael Hirst and Angel Moroni on guitar and Steven Cawley on bass. After playing a show in late 2016 they joined forces with drummer Benji Zweifel. Nubia continued playing shows in Switzerland and writing their debut EP.
While they were abroad recording their debut EP TRUE SYMMETRY with Nicolas Delestrade in Paris, France in early 2018, David Häusermann who was a friend of the band before, contacted and joined the band. As soon as Nubia finished recording the instrumental parts of the record, they returned to Switzerland and startet writing and recording vocals with David.
In the meantime they continued playing shows and growing their fanbase. In August 2018 the band played the Openair Gränichen which featured acts like Northlane, Jinjer, and Comeback Kid.
Their debut EP TRUE SYMMETRY dropped on November 23th 2018 and played a release show with their friends in Thorn, Mycelia and Unprocessed who came all the way from Germany.
Nubias live shows can be described as energetic, passionate and powerful! They performed in various different Cities and never fail to make their crowd get infected with their energy as they always strive to play as tight as possible and deliver an exciting live show for the audience.
The Band has acted as supporting band for different touring acts such as Oceans Ate Alaska, Ghost Iris and even shared the stage with household names like Northlane, Jinjer or Comeback Kid, just to name a few.
The most important thing about playing shows is–as cheesy as it sounds – to have fun. Nubia loves writing songs and perfecting them but at the end of the day nothing beats standing on stage and just losing themselves in the music.
