Make Them Suffer have had the pedal to the metal since the release of their last album,Old Souls, in 2015. The band has toured relentlessly both at home and abroad with artists including Parkway Drive,Architects,
In Hearts Wake, August Burns Red and Whitechapel, everywhere from Indonesia to Poland and in between. They found the time to get back in the studio to create Ether, a slab of churning, ethereal noise that’s about to crack 3 million streams as well as landing the band strong triple j rotation, all the while pushing and pulling the limits of their writing behind the scenes to make something new.If Old Soulswas a cathartic, melodic step forward fromndebut albumNeverbloom’s crushing heartache,
Worlds Apart is a jump into the unknown. It’s heavy as can be but still bittersweet. Melodic, though aggressive; experimental and captivating.
Worlds Apart is a statement of intent from a band not content to repeat
themselves in a scene renowned for shunning change, and you need to hear it.“Worlds Apart represents a new era for the band,”explains frontman Sean Harmanis. “
It’s the risks in songwriting and production taken in the past that lead us
to this point. The album is a reminder to ourselves that change and growth are good things, as both have been integral to the success of this band and its identity. It’s tough to say so early, but I think
Worlds Apart is an album that will be in your stereo for quite some time.
It’s been such a crazy ride to think back to practicing our songs on
mums kitchen floor. Members have come and gone, sacrifices have been made and we’ve quite seriously thought about throwing in the towel so many times. Our debut album Neverbloom gave us an extremely loyal following that saw us through an immense three-year gap between albums.Old Souls saw the beginning of this band and it’s music starting to try new things, it also took the band out of Australia. I think with Worlds Apart we are now demonstrating our collective vision and what we’re capable of.”
After having NOVELISTS founded in Paris in early 2013 by the Durand brothers, they quickly joined forces with the former A CALL TO SINCERITY members Matt, Charly and Nicolas and released their first Single „Twenty Years“ already in April. Their fresh and distinguished sound was something the metal world didn’t expect. But this was only the beginning. They released 5 more singles and numerous videos within the next 10 months, culminating in the release of their Demo EP. By that time, in early 2014, NOVELISTS’ name and music had spread around the globe like a wildfire catching both the fans’ and the industry’s interest.
While working with full force on the production of their first full length album, the demand for live shows was rising and lead NOVELISTS to play selective prestigious events like Euroblast Festival, Ghostfest, and Damage Fest, before they played all over Europe alongside I, THE BREATHER at the end of 2014.
Empowered with this new live experience NOVELISTS finished the production of their debut Album in early 2015. It was time to raise the bar again and to increase the pressure even more. In March, the first single from the upcoming album „Gravity“ was released with a video, gathering over 100k plays in less than 3 weeks.
NOVELISTS had become a rising star within the progressive metal scene, ready to release their highly anticipated first album „Souvenirs“. „Souvenirs“ was released via Arising Empire on the 13th of November 2015, right after a European tour with german band Annisokay.
