Novareign Releases New Lyric Video For 'The Builder', Announces Tour Dates


After building a strong local following in the Los Angeles area with powerful live shows that feature stunning musicianship, the progressive power metal quintet Novareign – in support of the latest album "Legends" released earlier this year via M-Theory Audio (See CROM's review here) – will hit the road this summer for a West Coast tour with the power/thrash group Railgun. In addition, the band will also perform at select shows alongside Angra, Powerglove and labelmates Graveshadow in the coming months. All of the group's currently confirmed tour dates are listed below.

To celebrate their upcoming tour, the band has unveiled a new lyric video, created by Scott Rudd (Opeth, Fallujah), for the song “The Builder,” which can be seen in the player above. Guitarist Danny Nobel commented: "'The Builder' is a song that paints a color of its own in relation to the rest of the album, as it's the only mid-tempo song. It tells the story of a being – be he fictitious or of practiced belief – who is the creator of all things, physical and abstract alike. The creator of time, space and the cosmic ocean herself. The sculptor of fortunes, if you will. A being of this caliber would most appropriately be the subject of some form of worship, and the song celebrates the existence of a figure like that. Though it's not a sermon or anything, it's kind of cool to talk about all-powerful beings like that. I'd say some comic book elements were a huge influence to the lyrical theme. It's a fun song to play, and hopefully, a fun song to sing along to.”

Tor the upcoming tour, Nobel says that the band is looking forward to hitting the road. “We are ecstatic to embark on this quest with the boys in Railgun,” he says. “The guys have been great friends of ours for quite some time, and they're talented young cats who are really fun to be around. We also felt that our sounds complement one another well, so it seemed only fitting to have them join us on this tour. It's sure to be a killer time with more shred than any mere mortal can ever handle!”

The shows with Railgun mark the band's first official tour. “To be honest, Novareign as a whole are virgins to the road,” Nobel says. “You always want to start at home, so a West Coast tour seemed like the perfect way to get the party started. After we get our feet wet on our own turf, we'll traverse the States to a farther extent and beyond! No territory is safe!”
