As headliners they will once again be presenting the tracks from their latest effort titled »Noir«. Support on this run will come from their fellow countrymen and label mates LANDMVRKS. Full dates below.
ESKIMO CALLBOY will be embarking on a German headline run in support of their 2017 studio album »The Scene«, in March / April – but Austrian and Swiss fans need not worry, the tour will also be taking this line-up to Austria And Switzerland for four shows! Today, the support acts for this highly anticipated tour have been revealed – and it‘s not unknown bands which have been picked! Both are bands with two studio albums in their repertoire; German trancecore newcomers TO THE RATS AND WOLVES and assured French metalcore group NOVELISTS will be supporting the group from Castrop-Rauxel, Germany. Don’t miss the first modern metal touring highlight of 2018 – see ya in the pit!
Up and coming modern progressive metal outfit NOVELISTS have released the new music video for their song ‘L’appel Du Vide’. The song comes off their second record »Noir« which was released in September.
Today up and coming modern progressive metal outfit NOVELISTS have released their second record »Noir« today! The album is now available everywhere. The band also released their new lyric video for ‘Lead The Light’.
Hard Rock Hell Magazine: “…they deftly meld shimmering melodies with punchy, djent riffery, and they do it very well: Lead The Light, for instance, could give much of Periphery’s back catalogue a run for its money, and Heal The Wound is similarly spectacular.”
Rock Sound: “Parisian metallers Novelists don’t do things entirely by the book… (Noir) It’s a melting pot of styles that comes together well, giving the band a foot in the Warped Tour world as much as, say, the metal scene… this is good, versatile stuff.”
Broken Amp: “Novelists’ real innovation – and for me their trademark – is their delicacy, a characteristic which is very difficult to achieve within the boundaries of metalcore. The harmonics in ‘The Light, the Fire’ are irresistibly pretty, as are the elegant guitar melodies in ‘Under Different Welkins’, the fluid guitar playing providing a perfect foil to the juddering rhythms… Noir is an album in which to lose yourself.”
Metal Hammer: “(Novelists) should be applauded for doing what they do very well. Songs like Monochrome may trade on predictable build-and-boom dynamics, but when they swell to such a glorious payoff it’s hard to argue against.”
The band recently announced to support Australian deathcore powerhouse MAKE THEM SUFFER on their Worlds Apart European Tour 2017. They’ll also share the stage with CURSED EARTH.

Today up and coming modern progressive metal outfit NOVELISTS have released the new music video for ‘A Bitter End’. The song comes off of their upcoming second album »Noir« which will be released on the 8th of September via Arising Empire & SharpTone Records.
The band commented: “This song comes from the darker chapter of the album, and is one of our personal favorites. We’ve always been very bipolar regarding what we want in our songs; this one shows the heavier side of the band.”
