You’ve probably heard of Melbourne band Zoophyte – but if you think you know their music, think again.
Since bursting onto the scene in 2004, the band forged an enviable reputation as a blistering live act, which they followed up in the studio with their acclaimed 2007 album, Another Point of View. Lead single Better Days was one of the standout tunes of that summer, receiving airplay on Triple J, Triple R, PBSFM, FBI, 4ZZZ, Radio Adelaide and Fox FM. Responding to demand from fans, Zoophyte embarked on a massive national tour, cementing their reputation as a fantastic live band and picking up even more fans – and great reviews – along the way.
After clocking up a few thousand kilometres playing sold-out shows across the country, the guys decided to take a break, do some soul searching and start work on their highly anticipated follow-up.
The revamped line-up of Cam Lee (vocals and guitar), Andrew Gilpin (bass), Rob Muinos (guitar) and Elvis Aljus (drums) spent the best part of the last 18 months in the studio – writing, recording and shaping the inherently melodic rock sound that is Zoophyte of 2012.
