Today, the acclaimed French progressive metalcore band Novelists releases their deeply emotional new single and music video, Mourning The Dawn. This third single shows the band’s versatility and emotional depth. Building on the momentum of their previous releases, Mourning The Dawn presents a shift in Novelists’ artistic direction, returning to the roots of their original sound. It echoes a sense of longing and a journey through the night, a theme that is both sad and heavy, reminiscent of Novelists early work.

The lyrics of Mourning The Dawn paint a vivid picture of yearning and loss, capturing the essence of the song’s deep and resonant tone. “I fade away into the void with all I am, into the darkness of a dream within your arms,” sings Camille Contreras, whose powerful and emotive vocals lead this poignant track. The song delves into themes of love, sorrow, and the haunting presence of an absent figure, resonating with listeners who have experienced similar feelings of longing and regret. The music video is expected to be a visually captivating representation of the song’s emotional depth. Fans can anticipate a narrative that complements the song’s introspective lyrics, further enhancing the overall experience of Mourning The Dawn.

Novelists established themselves as a prominent force in the progressive metalcore scene. Known for their innovative sound and emotive storytelling through music, they continue to captivate audiences worldwide on their upcoming Europe and UK tour in 2024.
