Novatines are a 4 piece rock band who formed in the winter of 2017. The band immediately made a name for themselves on the UK circuit with their anthemic, high-octane set. Novatines have toured extensively throughout the UK and Europe on both headline and support tours, playing alongside the likes of Alabama 3, Arcane Roots, Von Hertzen Brothers, and Sweet.
In the late summer of 2018 the band took up residence in Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios to start work on their debut album, with Andy Scott of Sweet in the producers chair. Novatines released their first single ‘Hate Love’ from the Real World sessions, in February 2019. The single was featured in Classic Rock magazines ‘Tracks Of The Week’ and was also playlisted on Planet Rock radio.
In May 2019 the band were invited as special guests on a tour of Germany supporting The Sweet, playing sold out venues such as Columbiahalle in Berlin, Große Freiheit in Hamburg, and Circus Krone in Munich.
Following this, the band had full page spreads in both Classic Rock magazines ‘High Hopes’ Feature and Planet Rock magazines ‘Ones To Watch’. Novatines sound is a rebirth of classic British rock with influences from 90s American alternative rock and grunge. Influenced by the sound of Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters and Nirvana, the group have been tipped as one of the ‘hottest new UK guitar bands’.
