. . . Conan (band) . . .

Conan was founded as a two piece by guitarist/singer Jon Davis in 2006, with Richie Grundy on drums. Following the departure of Grundy, Paul O’Neil took over on drums before the band went on nearly a year-long hiatus. Once activity resumed, the band added the position of bass guitarist and went through several musicians before Chris Fielding joined in 2013.[5] Longtime drummer O’Neil, who had performed on both of the band’s full-length albums, was replaced by Rich Lewis in 2014.[6] On 31 March 2015, the band announced that they would be headlining a US tour with support Samothrace and Mantar. The tour consisted of 11 dates, including Psycho California and Maryland Deathfest.[7]

In June 2015, the band announced they had begun the writing process for a new album.[8] On 15 October, the band announced their third full-length album would be titled Revengeance, as well as a release date of 29 January 2016.[9] On 3 August 2017 the band announced on their Facebook page the departure of Lewis.

The latest Conan album entitled Existential Void Guardian was released on 14 September 2018.
