Bobaflex's latest record, Eloquent Demons, is the follow up to 2015's Anything That Moves. This is the second album to feature Dave Tipple and Jymmy Tolland and the first album to be released on Thermal Entertainment LLC.

The band was originally signed by Eclipse Records to release their first full length album Primitive Epic. the band went on to TvT Records where they released two albums in Apologize for Nothing (2005) and Tales From Dirt Town (2007). label went bankrupt in 2009.

The band decided to go the independent route and started their own label, BFX Records in 2010 in order to control their own destiny. They released an EP in 2010 called Chemical Valley. With the exception of a re-recorded version of 2007's Home, all the songs on the EP would become part of their full release in 2011 Hell In My Heart which featured 16 songs and their top selling single to date Bury Me With My Guns On and their very popular cover of Sound Of Silence (Simon-Garfunkel). Hell In My Heart was followed in 2013 with Charlatan’s Web which included the single I'm Glad You're Dead their most successful song at radio in their history.

Bobaflex’s tireless ethos has also carried into their live shows and touring schedule. Having played all lower 48 states over the last 7 years, they have played 100+ shows every year including a record setting 154 in 2016. This constant schedule has crafted the band into one of the tightest and real live Rock n' Roll bands in the country.

Novarium
Years of stage and recording experience can only culminate in a finely tuned cohesive unit. Enter NOVARIUM.

Founded in 2013, The Washington, DC based, female-fronted outfit—vocalist Lisa D'Arcangelis, guitarists Sean Gronholt and Dean Michaels, bassist Eliakon and drummer Dean Anthony— marries the doom and gloom of contemporary metal music with the hooks of synth leads and string arrangements of its' gothic counterparts.

With a debut album due early 2016, NOVARIUM enlisted the help of fellow gothic rock alumni, Micah Consylman, formerly of Metropolis Records recording artists, BELLA MORTE. With additional tracking and production at Consylman's studio, Final Symphony, the band was able to create the perfect blend of dark ambience, powerful vocals, and exceptional musicianship. Mixing and mastering at Antithesis Studios in Maryland with Ashley Maccabee is currently underway.

Haunting and poetic, with intermittent moments of energy, NOVARIUM has created a monster.
