Independent punk rockers, The Novocaines from Perth, Western Australia formed in 2006 and since then, the band has made a name for themselves worldwide with their ferociously energetic live performance. Before touring in Japan in 2012, the band toured in The USA including several showcases during SXSW ‘11. The band has also performing relentlessly at home in Australia with bands such as Them Crooked Vultures, The Living End, You Am I, Jebediah and DZ Deathrays as well as playing some of the major festivals including Big Day Out. Popular tracks like “Cup of Coffee” & “Adhere To” have received frequent radio play with the likes of JJJ as well as being featured in several films and television series including Scream 4, Californication and Shameless. The Novocaines spent most of 2012 writing and self-producing their next set of songs, which will be released over the course of 2013 with a mix of free downloads and vinyl releases. The first two singles ‘Til Death and Freedom Please are a current and relevant example of The Novocaines direction for 2013; short, fast, energetic punk rock that draws influence from their modern contemporaries like Fucked Up and Pulled Apart by Horses The first single ‘Til Death has quickly spread to radio stations nationwide. Dave Ruby Howe of JJJ Unearthed reviewed ‘Til Death with 4/5 stars saying – ‘What an enlightening blast of messy, mean WA rock’. Further support came from Home and Hosed on JJJ with Dom Alessio describing the track as an “Absolute firecracker of a song”. Drum Media in Perth reviewed the Freedom Please single launch saying - “Freedom Please, ensured more beer found it's way onto the floor than into mouths, before more aggression and swagger commandeered the remainder of their set."
