With roots having been formed in Canada in 1985, Nova Rex has just celebrated their 32nd year. They are currently on the road full-time playing such events as Rocklahoma, Rockin’ the Rivers, 80s in the Park, Sturgis, Daytona BikeWeek and will be headlining Fall Jam 6 in St. Andrews, Manitoba kicking off their Canadian tour with their original Canadian guitarist, JP Cervoni.
We got in touch with their drummer, Eddie Cruise, who is a big advocate of cannabis. Above is a picture of Eddie and his wife, Lea in front of their tour bus. As you can see, it promotes cannabis all over it. Eddie is well educated on cannabis and shared with us a few facts such as medical marijuana and CBD oils help stress, some forms of cancer, and even conditions of pain and inflammation in some cases. It also helps protect the brain from concussions (football/boxers) and it is a natural medicine from our Creator…plus it smells great. Nothing like the taste of a good frosty bud.
To let you know a little about the history of Nova Rex, they released a documentary a few years back called “Nova Rex: Ain’t Easy Being Cheesy” that received multiple plays on the Documentary Channel and had a short run on Netflix and has been seen by millions of people.
The last couple of years have been very productive for Nova Rex. They have a national sponsorship with Anheuser-Busch and they played over 100 shows last year – every rock festival, bike week event in the states and the band is currently on the road full-time.
In recent news, Nova Rex is featured in a new ilm, “Hair I Go Again”, which is premiering in theaters. It features members of Warrant, Quiet Riot, Tesla, Motley Crue, etc plus one of their songs is in the ilm and they also made the DVD cover. Also, VH-1 ranked Nova Rex #48 out of 100 Greatest Hair Metal Bands of the 80’s.
Nova Rex has made their stamp in history in many ways, but one of the most unique is having been immortalized in the Smithsonian representing the 80’s metal music genre as well as the Hard Rock Collection.
After seven albums and countless compilations, Nova Rex has just released a new music video as well as a brand new album, “Nova Rex: Rock Star Roadshow”. We are thrilled that they are back in Canada promoting their album and we hope everyone can catch at least one of their shows near you. www.facebook.com/NovaRexRocks/
