To celebrate the release of the new single, ZOOPHYTE are proud to announce they will be performing in Melbourne on FRIDAY MAY 30TH at THE ESPY (GERSHWIN ROOM).
If Melbourne’s alternative rock band ZOOPHYTE sound familiar, it’s probably because they’ve been writing music and playing gigs since 2004. Always evolving, the band’s indelible song-writing, unmistakable raw vocals and interesting guitar interplay, have helped them build a reputation as an explosive live act, sharing the stage with the likes of Eskimo Joe, Grinspoon, You Am I, and INXS along the way. The four piece’s breakthrough came in 2012, with the release of their album ‘SOMEWHERE ELSEWHERE’, from which the 3 singles ‘LET YOU GO’, ‘EARLY MOURNING’ and ‘FREE THE LIGHT’ where released.
Feverishly determined to never make the same record twice, the band bunkered down in the studio for 6 months only recently resurfacing with a brand new record. Elaborating on the large sounds of their previous release the results are something different, yet still ZOOPHYTE with their sense of raw energy and dark romantic sensibility remaining at the forefront.
Engineered and produced with Cam Trewin (Kingswood, Saskwatch) and mastered by Brian Lucey (Arctic Monkeys, The Black Keys, Beck), you can expect a bolder, edgier, bigger sound from the ZOOPHYTE boys… including their first single ‘THE EMPIRE’, released digitally today (Monday May 12th).
