The Novaks are Mick Davis (vocals, guitar), Mark Neary (vocals, bass) and
Elliot Dicks (drums). Based in St. John’s, NL, the band formed in 2002.
The band’s eponymous first album was released in Canada by Sonic Records in
2005. Featuring the singles “Goodbye Rock and Roll Band” and “I’ll Give You a
Ring,” the band won the 2006 ECMA Rising Star of the Year. The song "No One
Quite Like You" was featured as "The Coolest Song in The World" on Little
Steven's Underground Garage. Little Steven released their debut album in the
US on his Wicked Cool Records label in 2006.
The much anticipated follow up, Things Fall Apart was recorded in just over a
week ‘live off the floor’ at The Sonic Temple in Halifax, NS. The album features
Ian McLagan of The Faces on keyboards.
The first single “There Goes The Night” is being serviced to Rock radio in May. A
music video is being directed by Ante Kovac (Tragically Hip, Matthew Good, Arkells).
The Novaks are showcasing at the 2009 NXNE Music Festival in June and will be
touring in support of Things Fall Apart this summer.
