Kovax - If There Was Ever Any Doubt (2017)



Kovax began in late 2015 with Joe Phillips and Isaac Turner joining Pete Freeth to try out a collection of songs he had been writing over the previous months. The three were pleased with the sound of their initial rehearsals and eventually brought second guitarist Dan Hey into, which really fleshed out the groove based riffs the band is built on.

The newly formed four-piece then played two secret shows to friends and fellow musicians as a test run of the material, which was well received. This lead to the planning of the band's full launch, which included the release of debut single 'Godot' in January 2016, along with b-side 'Marigolds', and a four day run of shows, including gigs at The Parish, in Huddersfield, and headlining an Inutero Presents show in Leeds.

Kovax then released their follow up single 'Monkeys' in June 2016, which was played on BBC Radio Leeds and Sheffield and lead to the band being featured in Discovered Magazine's 'The North' issue. The release of 'Monkeys' coincided with two short summer tours, during which Kovax played alongside incredible British bands such as Youth Man, I Cried Wolf and Nova Hands and at events such as Live in Barnsley and Alt-Metal Fest in Manchester. 





Following this Kovax then took time to work on new material, which was put to the test live in November on an 8 date tour with Nova Hands. The new material went down well, encapsulating the raw aggression and groove based pop-sensibilities the band are known for. So, Kovax then went into the studio at the beginning of December 2016 to work on their anticipated debut EP, which is scheduled for release in May 2017.

The band are also still regularly playing shows, cementing their reputation as one of Leeds' loudest and most energetic bands.
