Based in darkest Devon in the south west of the United Kingdom, Lunix were formed in 2008. The next five years were spent solidifying the lineup ,refining the sound and gigging the UK pub circuit. In 2014 Lunix were invited to play the New Millenium stage at the prestigious Progressive Nation festival by none other than Mike Portnoy himself. Upon returning, Lunix entered the studio with a new vigour. 2015 will see the band release debut album Automated Nightmare and return to the live scene, with sights set on Europe.
“We know our formative years were slow burning, but this has only intensified our passion and ambition to bring progressive heavy metal to live audiences.
Progressive Nation at Sea was both a wake-up call for us, and a call to arms; to know that a prog legend such as Mike Portnoy saw our video on YouTube, saw us play and had enough faith in us to invite us to play PN14 was a real honour and inspiration.”
