About Us

Luna Sol Band

Luna Sol is a high mountain stoner rock band, fronted by veteran singer and lead guitarist David Angstrom (Hermano, Supafuzz). Angstrom moved to the mountains just north of Denver in 2012 and started soaking in the strange but relaxed mountain communities around him. Inspired by the local news and folklore, Angstrom started writing the songs that would become “Blood Moon” and put together Luna Sol with local musicians—drummer Pat Gill (The Feds, ’76 Pinto), guitarist and vocalist Shanda Kolberg (The Swanks), and bassist and vocalist Shannon Fahnestock (The Swindlers).

A drive into the mountains with Angstrom shows that “Blood Moon” captures the removed from society lifestyle of the Rockies. Songs “Leadville,” “Standley Lake,” and “Death Mountain” all come with stories from Angstrom that seem like bizarre mountain folklore, like cautionary tales read to children in books with colorful drawings. Angstrom clearly loves the morbid strangeness with a fascinated curiosity of his new homeland and shares it with us here on “Blood Moon.”

The album was recorded at Sierra Estates in Colorado, and the album artwork was designed by celebrated Denver tattoo artist Christel Perkins of Sol Tribe. The basic tracks were finished in a week, and in keeping with the long-standing tradition of the stoner and desert rock communities, members of the Luna Sol extended family tree contributed additional elements to the recording. John Garcia (Vista Chino, Hermano, Kyuss) adds vocals on “December,” Dandy Brown (Hermano, Orquestra del Desierto) plays bass on “Death Mountain,” Nick Oliveri (Vista Chino, Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age) plays bass on “Pretty Rotten,” Greg Martin (Kentucky Headhunters) contributes slide guitar on “Death Mountain,” Dean Smith (Supafuzz) plays bass on “Bridges,” Jason Groves (Supafuzz, Asylum on the Hill) plays bass on “In the Shadows,” and Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses) delivers a keys performance on the Hammond B3 for “Your War.”The album is dark, heavy, and filled with hooks. You’ll keep the motor running until your song is over. John Garcia calls “Blood Moon” “a dark twisted ride down the mountain… It rocks.”
