2006 - To Stand Divided EP
2005 - Self Titled EP



Lost in the landscape of their Midwest small towns the members of Lost Nation found each other with great ambitions and tremendous goals. The band: made up of vocalist Trent Benesh, guitarist Ryan Benesch, bassist John Zlabek, and drummer Colin Wickman wasted no time in trying to create a sound that would soon rise above their faceless location and establish themselves as a voice, name, and face to reckon with.

In the summer of 2005 Lost Nation played their first show and haven't looked back since. Quickly establishing themselves as a leading progressive band in the Cedar Rapids area they were soon opening for bands such as Drowning Pool, Powerman 5000, and Soil within a matter of months. Word spread fast and before long they were on the road branching out across the Midwest playing shows spanning from Des Moines to the Quad Cities and into Wisconsin. After extensive Midwest shows Lost Nation decided to record their first EP entitled To Stand Divided in August of 2006. Teamed up with gold record selling and major record label producer Tom Tatman (Stone Sour, House of Large Sizes), Lost Nation was able to emerge from the studio with a solid first record that has plenty of attitude and originality and has been received with eager ears.

Lost Nation intends to keep building their Midwest fan base with their aggressive straightforward approach and unique sound. You won't find any trendy gimmicks at a Lost Nation show as the members continually strive towards a stance in the music industry all to their own and they don't plan on quitting until they have been found...
