We are Impala is an Instrumental Dream Rock band from Barcelona formed by Xavier Abellán (lead guitar) and Juan Badel (bassist ) after the dissolution of The Black Rose Road in 2012, band that toured through Spain and opened for Alice Cooper and Alter Bridge among others, getting a great acceptance by the specialist press with their first album Feed The Circle.
After a while, Ander (drummer of Descent Ark) joins the band and begin to compose. After the departure of Juan in September 2013, Mauro (bassist of Flying Renos & Silent) joins the band. The latest addition was Albert Guanyabens (Aleph Cuántico) to keyboard and synths, which helped to set the final touch to the characteristic sound of the band.
We are Impala explores the territory of instrumental Rock from its most atmospheric and dreamy optics, without neglecting the strength using a classic rock sound execution. His work aims to mix music with projections from Joaquin Celaá and some inspired tales by the psychedelic writer Rafa Roca. All this experimentation converges in what will be his first album Synesthesia.
The band has just signed to the Italian label Jetglow Recordings, that has been interested in working with them from the beginning of our adventure.
