NOVELISTS started 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 then released their debut album on Arising Empire / Nuclear Blast in november 2015.
After touring Europe extensively with bands like For Today, Breakdown of Sanity, Dream on Dreamer, Silent planet etc.. NOVELISTS embarqued on a summer of 2017 tour with established bands WHILE SHE SLEEPS and NORTHLANE. Best way to conclude the „Souvenirs“ album cycle.
Finally back with a follow up concept album soberly named „Noir“ released September 8th via Arising Empire in Europe and Sharptone records in the USA.
„Noir“ is divided in 4 chapters, all of them with their own emotion, feeling, guitar tuning, and even their own production/mixing.
The band says about the new album :
"We have worked so hard on this record for a whole year, we wanted to make no compromise in making this album, which made the process very painful, but we couldn't be happier and proud of the end result"
NOVELISTS has become, in only a few years, a rising star within the progressive metal scene, and it seems they are now ready to confirm it by releasing their highly anticipated second effort.
