"Freedom Please doesn’t fuck about, kicking straight into a venomous barrage of meaty post-hardcore. It’s a little bit Pulled Apart By Horses and a little bit The Vines."

Biography

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.

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 new singles ‘Til Death and Freedom Please launched in April 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.

Both singles spread quickly across Australian radio, getting regular spins on JJJ and all of the major community radio stations. Since the release of Freedom Please, The Novocaines have been featured and reviewed in The Drum Media (NSW and WA), Beat Magazine (VIC), Mess+Noise and Off The Record.

The Novocaines are currently back in the studio working on follow up singles to Freedom Please and ‘Til Death, as well as planning national and international tours for the remainder of the year.

Before touring in Japan in 2012, the band toured in The USA including several showcases during SXSW ‘11. The band has also performed relentlessly 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, Southbound and Playground Weekender.

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.

Praise for The Novocaines:

Freedom Please doesn’t fuck about, kicking straight into a venomous barrage of meaty post-hardcore. It’s a little bit Pulled Apart By Horses and a little bit The Vines, all of it pretty solid.
Beat Magazine (VIC) – Issue 1370 – 08/05/2013

"Freedom Please (Independent) screeches and skids at you with an intensity approaching throat-shredding and an almost nu-metal energy – but they, like that term, are a little?beyond that."
The Drum Media (NSW) – April 2013

"Headliners The Novocaines took over the stage, commanding it from the first tune. 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."
Luke Butcher – The Drum Media (WA) – Issue 335 – 25/04/2013

“I gave the track a sneaky peak of a listen before I went into the Gig and loved the intelligent accents, the abrasively energetic and urgent vocal delivery, the delicious deep throat tones of instruments coming from ends. I think if there is one thing you can take from the performance at the Rosemount, and from the Novocaines’ latest endeavors is an overwhelming sense of energetic urgency and suffocating desperation.”
Drew Krapljanov - WHY CAN'T I DRAW? – 21/04/2013

‘Til Death - 4/5 stars – ‘What an enlightening blast of messy, mean WA rock’.
Dave Ruby Howe of JJJ Unearthed – April 2013

‘Til Death - “Absolute firecracker of a song”.
Dom Alessio of JJJ’s Home and Hosed – April 2013

Lyrics

Cup of Coffee

Written By: The Novocaines

One more cup of coffee before I go
I've been beating around water yeah, and I've been told
My mama said don' be lying, lying cheating
So I'll be praying to Jesus yeah to come back home

Cos I know, oh I know
And I know, oh I know

One more cup of coffee before I go
I've been turning the highway, but it takes too long
Papa said don't be lying, lying cheating
So I'll turn another table on my gramophone

Cos I know, oh I know
And I know, oh I know

Lovers Teeth

'Til Death

Written By: The Novocaines

Apologies, I’m like you
Apologies, I am like
Apologies, wish me luck
Apologies, we hide

Apologies, I miss you
Apology denied
Apologies, I bled for you
I don’t care, I bled for you

There’s something in the way that you are / what’s in my head

‘Til death do we part

Apologies avoided
Apologies, your qualified
Apologies, I bled for you
I don’t care, I bled for you

There’s something in the way that you are / what’s in my head

‘Til death do we part

Freedom Please

Written By: The Novocaines

Freedom please don't wave as you pass me by
Freedom please don't wave as you say bye bye
Freedom please don't wave as you occupy
Freedom please don't change your guidelines

Be as free as you want to be
As free as you want

Freedom reign supreme all of the time
Freedom please don't wave as you pass me by
Colour me in, colour me out, colour me whole, colour me outside the lines, side the lines
Freedom please don't wave as you pass the time

Be as free as you want to be
As free as you want
