Each change of the seasons since has brightened the future for the gem of Colorado’s rock scene. In the fall of 2010, Novus dominated the field of KBPI’s Best Band In Denver contest to claim the powerhouse rock radio station’s title on the advice of guest judge Shawn Crahan (better known as Clown from Slipknot). This victory opened the door for the band to throw tantalizing performances in support of Korn, Papa Roach, Drowning Pool and others in between headlining their own shows in the mile high city. Despite the bright lights the band has stayed grounded using their new found popularity to raise money for numerous local and national charities of varying interest, often forfeiting their entire paycheck as well as proceeds from merchandise.
In the spring of 2011 they made history by becoming the first act ever to hold both of the city’s musical crowns when they won Westword magazine’s Best of The West contest, an intense battle royal spanning the genres and including all of Denver’s finest acts. While the passion-soaked performances have won the adoration of the fans, it was the band’s songwriting and unique sound that caught the attention of Jeff Kanan, the platinum record award winning producer and engineer who has worked with the likes of Madonna, No Doubt, and Busta Rhymes. Teaming with Kanan the band recorded their debut full length album, War Games, and plan to release the record independently June 25th, 2011. The band intends to tour the U.S.
extensively in support of the album in the coming months. Ambitious and relentless, Novus Folium has its sights set at the top of the genre and beyond. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
