ANIMISTIC INCARNATE EP LAUNCH
Formed in 2010, Animistic are a 5 piece delivering savage riffing, driving rhythms and violent vocals to create a wall of sound that is dark and crushing. Having spent the past two years reaping havoc on local stages, ANIMISTIC have gradually etched their mark, developing, creating and honing in on their own style that has seen them steadily rise in confidence, stature and popularity.

CAM BUTLER VIDEO SCREENING FOR NEW ALBUM
Cam Butler plays a special screening of the 5 videos made for his new album, Save My Soul. The record is the follow up to Cam's album of 2008, Dark Times. Featuring a true symphonic lineup of a 23 piece string section (conducted by Benjamin Northey), orchestral harp, timpani and percussion, drums, acoustic guitars and solo electric guitar, the result is the finest example yet of Cam's orchestral vision to combine modern electric guitar techniques and sound with string orchestras.
