Angel Nation was formed in 2011 in London by Finnish opera turned rock singer, Elina Siirala. Elina comes from a family of renowned classical musicians in Finland and was trained in classical music and opera. She moved to London to study in 2008 and began discovering new forms of music and feel for Rock & Metal, which lead to her starting her own band, originally under the name EnkeliNation (Angel Nation in Finnish).
After years of working the local London circuit, developing songs and performance, the debut LP ‘Tears of Lust was released in 2014 to great reviews. In the same year, the band played Bloodstock festival with bands including Megadeth & Saxon and embarked on a headline UK tour. In 2015, the band ventured overseas for a small tour in Finland as well as various smaller UK festival appearances. In 2016, the label Nuclear Blast took on the distribution of the Tears of Lust LP, which is temporarily out of stock, while the band focused on creating the new album. The first track to be released from the new album will be ‘Do It Anyway’ on 23rd Sept.
