Hello again friends and fiends!
Tayla here, and today I am bringing to you one of my favourite bands of the moment and also the winner of this month's Band Of The Month crown: November-7.
Hailing from Neuchâtel, Switzerland, November-7 are: Annamaria Cozza on vocals, Stéphane Geiser and Matt Walters on guitars, Emmi Lichtenbahn on bass and Yann Siegenthaler on drums. The band formed in 2005 and have since released two EPs, two live DVDs and have recently put out the follow up to 2011's debut Season 3.
The band's second album Awaraxid 7mg has an interesting medical concept surrounding it. In order to communicate the medical concept the band released 5 short videos introducing the scientists behind the projects and the reasons why they decided to launch the drug. All 5 videos can be viewed on the band's youtube. The band's website slates the new album as “pure November-7”, and goes on to say: “it embraces melodies and martial sounds, fusing catchy choruses, fat and obsessive guitars and industrial samples.” They certainly prove themselves with the lead track from the album Another Day, which brings together the effects of Awaraxid 7mg both good and bad in a staged scenario between two main characters. Why not see for yourself?
