Long Beach power rockers Bella Novela have been active since 2007, blending the big tunes of ABBA with the pomp of Queen and the epic metal of Iron Maiden. 2019 saw the release of their fourth album, Incinerate, and back in April singer Jackie Laws told us that, “I feel that with this album in particular, there’s a lot of anger and rage behind it and a lot of stuff that’s going on in the nation right now. As female musicians, and among women in general, we’re able to channel a lot of those societal feelings into this album. I think that really helps give us a vision and a goal to write to.” That’s exactly what they did. Enjoy that rage in their hometown this week.
Bella Novela plays at 9 p.m. on Saturday, January 11 at the Prospector.
