Novacrow – Interview


Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)

PD: What type of artist are you?
N: Novacrow is an alternative metal band based in Liverpool, UK. Our music is an incredibly erotic concoction of the best that music has to offer, infusing elements of industrial, gothic, and heavy metal into a blend of horror themed alternative metal.

 

PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
N: The band formed in 2013, drawn together by a mutual desire to make fools of ourselves and by a shared love of kazoos. Since then we’ve released two Eps, several singles and music videos, and we’re gearing up to release our debut album ‘Look At Me Now’. We’ve been consistently touring the UK and have made appearances at Metal Days, Winter Days of Metal, Hard Rock Hell Road Trip in Ibiza, and most recently at this year’s Bloodstock festival.

 

PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
N: Our musical influences vary greatly, from Type O Negative to Sister Sledge to the Pokemon soundtrack to anything in between. We also take a lot of influences from horror themes and stories, films, books, whatever inspires us really.

 

PD: What are your dreams and goals?
N: We would like to have our own personal army of sexy women spreading the word of Novacrow across the world in the most unholy crusades. Our names should be synonymous with sexual prowess and pure musical genius. That’s the goal, anyway.

 

PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
N: Most of the songs are co-written by Kitty and Freddy. Like we mentioned before, they could be about anything that’s inspiring us – we have songs written about classic horror stories, songs written about Freddy’s hilarious nightmares, some about video game characters, you name it. And sometimes we get a bit more personal and we’ll write songs about issues that mean a lot to us, ultimately we’ll write about whatever speaks to us.

 

PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
N: Mostly with hilarious posts and terrible attempts at TikTok videos.

 

PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
N: I mean, after 22 years of this debate it’s been pretty much accepted as the norm. And if you’re not rolling with the times then at this point it just seems like you’re gonna be making things harder for yourself. Hence why we’ll invest a lot of time and energy into playing shows and making sure we have quality merchandise that people can buy at our shows.

 

PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
N: Whatever song has made the most money in royalties in the history of music. Which, according to Google, seems to be “Happy Birthday” so…we wish we had written “Happy Birthday”.

 

PD: What are some of your pet peeves?
N: People who chew loudly with their mouths open.

 

PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
N: We always feel quite proud when we hear from our fans how much they like our music. Collectively, we also feel very proud when we hear people refer to Kitty as a positive role model for women who want to get into metal music.

 

PD: So what are you working on at the moment?
N: Well, I’m glad you asked! We’ve recently released two singles from our upcoming debut album ‘Look At Me Now’. They’re called ‘Hollow Armour’ and ‘Day Break’, and both have beautifully shot videos and showcase the level of excellence you can expect from the rest of the album.

PD: What music have you available online and where can we buy it from? 
N: We’ve released a few EPs and singles over the years and you can find them on all streaming services! You can also buy our ‘Novacrow: Volume 1’ compilation CD that features all of our previous releases over at our website www.novacrowofficial.com. Get yourself a nice shirt while you’re there.
