NOVARIUM - Release New Single "Virus"

Hard rock/metal band Novarium have released their new single "Virus," available on all digital platforms, with a corresponding music video. Although the members are scattered across opposite coasts, the band has been actively working on new music for their second EP. "Virus" gives listeners an intimate taste of their upcoming work, and showcases a rebirth of sorts for Novarium. A modern take on the fusion of hard rock and metal, "Virus" is a true testament to the band's continuous evolution, despite the members' physical distance. Containing both cinematic elements and some retro 80's influences, Novarium is authentically themselves, allowing ample room for growth, experimentation, and change. "Virus" uses heavy gothic imagery to tell the story of human nature, which they plan to be a recurring theme in their new music. About the single, lead vocalist Jen Janet states:
“Virus” uses god/goddess imagery and gothic lyrics to describe human nature. It’s about loving someone and putting them on a pedestal, but that person changes, becoming selfish and evil. Although we are in the midst of a pandemic at the moment, we wrote this song quite a while ago. It seemed fitting to release it now with current events. It’s about understanding the virus inside ourselves – the dark parts of ourselves and coming to terms with them and who we are. Humans are not god and evil, there are always parts of us that will perform good deeds, and parts that will perform evil actions as well. Understanding that is an important part of understanding society and the confusing time in our current social and political climate.
