A Brief History of Novacrow
In a blur of headbanging, booty-shaking, pelvic-thrusting mayhem, Novacrow deliver a sleazy heavy sound, with their wide range of influences keeping their music eclectic and exciting. Onstage, they aim to be as entertaining as possible and guarantee* to be better than sex.
Based in Liverpool and forming late 2013, NOVACROW consists of Kitty Staunton on lead vocals and guitar, Federico "Freddy" Spera on bass/backing vocals and Jonyx on guitars/backing vocals. They promise an energetic and erection-inducing live show, fun for the whole family.
The band regularly tours across the UK and have supported a variety of touring artists, including Discharge, Psychostick, Skarlett Riot, and Green Jellÿ. They have featured at numerous festivals in the UK and internationally, including Metal Days and Winter Days of Metal in Slovenia, Whitby Goth Festival and Hard Rock Hell's Highway to Hell festival.
Following the successful release of Novacrow: Volume 1, the band is currently working on a highly anticipated new album. Featuring Scare Tactic's Stuart Barker behind the drums, this album aims to take Novacrow's sound to a whole new level and is set to make a heavy impact on the UK metal scene.
