It’s been a stellar year for Melbourne band ZOOPHYTE as they blazed back into the spotlight with the March release of the hugely successful new single ‘LET YOU GO’. With its soaring vocal, catchy melody and uplifting guitar dynamics, ‘LET YOU GO’ saw the band emerge as media darlings and garnered huge support from fans.
The video premiered exclusively on ToneDeaf and within one week edged close to 1,000 views making it one of the strongest performing videos on the site. Within an hour of the ToneDeaf premiere, the video was reposted nationally and internationally and with support from RAGE, saw views rapidly escalate to over 4,000.
With the recent release of the band’s second single ‘EARLY MOURNING’, ZOOPHYTE is again enjoying support from media nationally! It’s a hard paced rock song and yet a soft ballad, creating an essentially dark musical environment masked by a catchy chorus. Layered with the unmistakable vocals of Cam Lee and hook driven guitar riffs, ‘EARLY MOURNING’ encapsulates the essence of an emotionally powerful pop song. Make no mistake – gone are the folk / pop / funk hybrid tracks that defined ZOOPHYTE of old. ‘EARLY MOURNING’ is a guitar-heavy, alt-rock tour-de-force.
Since kicking off in March with a killer live set, the band have shared stages with the likes of INXS, Eskimo Joe, Tex Perkins, Grinspoon and Jebediah, clocking up thousands of kilometres and playing over 40 shows around the county including a string of dates in Noumea, New Caledonia.
To cap off an extraordinary year and reinforcing the strength of the new sounding album, ZOOPHYTE inked a deal with Mushroom Music Publishing. This sees the band join the ranks of an extraordinary roster of talent and the album SOMEWHERE ELSEWHERE distributed to TV Music Supervisors nationally.
In the lead up to today’s release of SOMEWHERE ELSEWHERE, the band has kept fans entertained with a host of great content on their website. This included an advance stream of the album which saw hundreds of fans listening to tracks throughout the week. In addition, ZOOPHYTE provided an insight into studio shenanigans with a series of hugely successful snippets filmed during the making of the album SOMEWHERE ELSEWHERE.
To celebrate the release of the album, ZOOPHYTE have announced a massive hometown album launch show at DING DONG LOUNGE on SATURDAY DECEMBER 8.
