Get caught up in a “Head Rush” with the new single from French progressive metalcore band Novelists

French modern progressive metal band Novelists FR have released their brand new single ‘Head Rush’ and launched pre-orders for their new upcoming album ‘C’est La Vie’, which will be available on the 24th of January 2020 via Arising Empire. Watch the music video for the brand new single ‘Head Rush’ below. The new song is the band’s first since the band’s recent rebrand to Novelists (FR), after a band with a similar name forced a slight change to their own. Luckily, it doesn’t seem to have affected their sound at all.

NOVELISTS FR formed in early 2013 when Florestan and Amael Durand met former A Call To Sincerity members Matteo Gelsomino, Nicolas Delestrade and Charles-Henri Teule. Starting strong with the release of 6 singles, one every two months, which created the foundations for a strong and loyal fanbase from the get-go, NOVELISTS FR then released their debut album on Arising Empire in November 2015.

After touring Europe extensively with bands like For Today, Breakdown of Sanity, Dream on Dreamer, and Silent Planet, NOVELISTS embarked on a Summer of 2017 tour with WHILE SHE SLEEPS and NORTHLANE – the best way to conclude the ‘Souvenirs’ (2015) album cycle. Later came the follow-up album soberly named ‘Noir’ which was released September 8th via Arising Empire in Europe and Sharptone Records in the USA. This concept album showed a growing maturity in the band’s music and cemented them as a very promising young band in the modern metal scene.
