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 EMBARKED 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. 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 third effort.
