Nova Twins have shared a very interesting track from their upcoming record
‘Cleopatra’ and is a cathartic mix of Nova Twins full potential as well as a way of expressing the resilience that two have. Set over a grooving instrumental, it is pure Nova Twins mastery of the highest order.
Guitarist Amy Love had this to say about the tune:
“‘Cleopatra’ was written off the back of the Black Lives Matter protests. Attending them made us feel powerful as two mixed-race women in an era where people were suddenly waking up to Anti Racists conversations. It’s about celebrating who we are and being proud of where we come from. We hope this song encourages people from all walks of life to act and feel the same way too.”
‘Supernova’ is set for release on June 17 via Marshall Records. Pre-orders are available via the following link.
The band have also announced the dates of their upcoming ‘Supernova’ Album tour which will be the duo’s largest headlining shows to date!

“We’re beyond excited to return to Slam Dunk. It’s a killer festival with killer bands and it’s an honor to be a part of the lineup. Like a lot of bands, it’s been years since we’ve been able to play in the UK. I promise we’re gonna do everything in our power to kick major ass. See ya there!”

Nova Twins have announced the details of their upcoming album.
‘Supernova’ will be released on June 17 via Marshall Records.
The band had this to say about the record:
“’Supernova’ is the beginning of a new era. As we delved into the unknown, making this album became our medicine through a turbulent time. It’s a reflection of where we were and how far we have come, encased in a fantasy world that we imagined. ‘Supernova’ is made out of dreams, triumphs and colourful nightmares. When you get to the other side, you will always come out a winner.”
The artwork looks like this:
01. Power (Intro) 02. Antagonist 03. Cleopatra 04. K.M.B. 05. Fire & Ice 06. Puzzles 07. A Dark Place For Somewhere Beautiful 08. Toolbox 09. Choose Your Fighter 10. Enemy 11. Sleep Paralysis
In addition to the announcement, the band have also dropped a new track ‘K.M.B’, a crushing slice of riffs and an attitude that comes with a brilliantly cheeky video:
The pair had this to say about it:
“’K.M.B.’ will stitch-up the hearts of the heartbroken, teaching the ones who broke it a lesson. Inspired by the sound and feel of the ’90s, we wrote and filmed our version of a playful horror movie. Think Mean Girls meets Clueless meets Pulp Fiction. Somewhere between those storylines is where you will find ‘K.M.B.’”
Nova Twins have shared the latest new video for their latest single ‘Antagonist’.
Out now via Marshall Records, the track follows on from their Bring Me The Horizon collab ‘1×1’, and debuted as Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1 with Clara Amfo last month (Wednesday, 27th October).
“‘Antagonist’ is a defiant tune about self-belief,” they explain; “how you can summon the inner strength to be ready for whatever comes at you. It’s the army that surrounds you wherever you go. The entire song was pulled together during a jam session. Having spent all of lockdown writing tracks remotely over computers, it was really exciting to capture this spontaneous energy together in the studio, as well as the nuances coming from our boards. We made sure not to lose any of this magic on the record.”
Check it out below; the duo are currently working on the follow up to their 2020 debut album ‘Who Are The Girls?’, and have a headline tour booked in for next February and March, plus a support tour with Enter Shikari for December.
OVer ninety plus acts have been announced for the upcoming 2021 iteration of the Leeds And Reading Festival.
Yungblud, Neck Deep and Fever 333 will be joined by Boston Manor, Creeper, Machine Gun Kelly, Spiritbox and more!
Also, I’m going to throw in a guess that MGK and Yungblud will pop in and out for each others sets? Only because they have made some huge tracks together and they’re right next to each other on the lineup!
Nova Twins have dropped a new version of their track ‘Undertaker’, remixed by Fever 333.
With the energy Nova Twins emit and the talent behind Fever, it’s fantastic to listen to
Nova Twins had this to say about it:
“We love what Fever 333 did with this “Undertaker” remix. It’s one of our favourite tracks to play live and we thought that they would be perfect to rework it! Jason brought an entirely new energy to the table with his vocal. We hope that when venues open up again, we can all play it together on stage! That would be epic.”
And Jason added this:
“I think one of the greatest things about this label collective is that it is run by artists for artists, which means every move we make is with artistry in mind. With that said – as label head I had the privilege of on boarding the inimitable Nova Twins to 333 Wrecks last year and as an artist myself I had the honor of working on a remix with them this year. Pretty win win scenario if you ask me. So much love and respect for these queens and I can’t wait for y’all to hear this one.”
London rock duo Nova Twins have been uniting with the Rock and Metal community for a brand new charity compilation record which celebrates alternative POC (People of Colour) talent
The band have teamed up with Big Joanie, Loathe, Oxymorrons and so many more for ‘Voices For The Unheard’, which is a limited-edition 12-track vinyl record brought to us via Dr. Martens Presents which will raise funds for The Black Curriculum. Pre-Orders are available here.
Speaking to NME about the project, Amy explains: “There’s a lack of representation and understanding of POC alternative artists, particularly in the UK. People are happy for black people to be in R&B and hip-hop because they feel like it’s safe and that’s the done thing. These are genres that black people have pioneered, but there’s a lack of education about how rock was also pioneered and helped to move forward by artists like Sister Rosetta Tharpe. The genre was carried by a lot of white men, but a lot of the POC artists got lost along the way.
“People don’t think we belong here. We get loads of stereotypes. People think that we’re R&B or dancers. We just want to create an eye-opening experience for the gatekeepers to understand that this isn’t going anywhere and see what’s really going on out there. In pop music, the headliners at big festivals reflect what’s happening today. That doesn’t happen in rock music. If people want rock music and the live industry to survive then they need to diversify.”
