about the band
Rooted in progressive rock, metal, modern pop, and even classical/romantic era styles, Oblivion Her Majesty’s sound palette spans the spectrum between heavy prog-rock textures, beautiful ballads, and experimental electronic music. The synth-rock outfit currently consists of Will Schmidt (lead vocals/guitar), Mike Lombardo (drums), Jake Durante-Koller (keyboard/vocals), Adam Federbusch (lead guitar) and Rachel Bello (bass).
The idea of OHM was born in a friend's attic-bedroom in 2015 amidst a discussion of "wasted potential”. Fueled by this idea, the band created a fictional story in the form of a movie plot and then composed a "soundtrack" to the story. This soundtrack would later become "Hopeless Masterminds", the band's debut album that will be released in early 2019.
Since their beginnings, Oblivion Her Majesty have performed at venues such as The Whisky a Go Go, World Cafe Live, and The Trocadero and shared the stage with bands like Smile Empty Soul, The National Parks, and Echo Black. In September of 2018, they played their first major festival, KAABOO Del Mar, in San Diego. The festival was headlined by The Foo Fighters, Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons, and Robert Plant.
