Lumerians is a San Francisco Bay Area based quintet. The group is notable for performances characterized by what the SF Weekly described as "transcendent live video projections." The band's sound was influenced by groups such as Sonic Youth, Krautrock groups such as Can and Neu!, and African and South American Psych music from the 1960s and 1970s, Italian horror movie soundtracks, post-punk and early industrial music. The band was founded by Tyler Green, Marc Melzer, Jason Miller and Chris Musgrave in 2006. After releasing their first S/T EP in 2008 and the Burning Mirrors/Chevaux Fous 7" in 2010, Lumerians supported acts such as Wire, Killing Joke and Butthole Surfers. Lumerians released their debut full length LP, "Transmalinnia" on Knitting Factory Records in March 2011, recorded in their own studio/brewery in a converted church in Oakland, California.
