The path to reinvention often emerges from the ashes of adversity. For the French progressive metalcore juggernaut Novelists, losing their lead singer was a pivotal moment that could have spelled the end. But in the face of uncertainty, they found Camille, a vocalist with exceptional prowess who not only saved the band but reignited their creative fire. When parting ways with their former vocalist, Tobi, Novelists faced a daunting challenge. They had a treasure trove of songs but lacked the voice to bring them to life. Thoughts of disbandment loomed large. Camille‘s arrival felt like a miracle, infusing the band with a vitality reminiscent of their early days.

Camille was the unexpected lifeline we desperately needed,” shares the band. “Her talent and energy revived Novelists at a time when we were at our lowest. It’s unbelievable how the right person crossed our path when we needed it most. We are thrilled to introduce the new and definitive iteration of Novelists and are immensely proud of the music we’ve crafted together, representing the very best of our journey.”

Novelists has debuted their rejuvenated sound with a brand-new single titled Turn It Up, , along with an accompanying video. This marks Camille‘s first appearance as their vocalist.

Camille’s arrival has not only saved the band but has propelled them to new heights, promising an exciting future for Novelists.

Novelists’ resilience and evolution underscore the band’s commitment to pushing boundaries and crafting music that resonates deeply with their fans.

The band will later embark on a headlining tour across France in November and December, showcasing their current album and revitalized lineup. Additionally, they will announce a European headlining tour in February later this month, with support from The Word Alive. Stay tuned for tour details, including dates and venues, to be announced soon.
