Salt Lake City Dark Arts Band Lineup Announcement

"With nearly 100 submissions, it was no easy task to select the lineup for the 2004 Dark Arts Festival, but the Dark Arts band committee is now pleased to announce our out-of-state-bands:

Human Drama
These Triple X Records artist from Los Angeles have been making heartfelt dark rock for 25 years, and have become a Salt Lake favorite. They'll be appearing at the 2004 Dark Arts festival with their full band lineup on their last tour ever.

The Last Dance
This Orange County, CA band has been playing impassioned gothic rock since 1990. Their headlining performance at the 2003 Convergence festival and their new album on Dancing Ferret Discs have made them a rising star in the dark music underground.

The Azoic
The flagship band on Nilaihah Records, The Azoic hails from both Ohio and Arizona. Their electronic industrial dance beats and fiery, emotional female vocals will touch down in Utah for the first time at the 2004 Dark Arts Festival.

A recent signing to Metropolis Records, Cesium_137 will be flying direct from Philadelphia, PA to wreak their aggressive EBM havoc on Salt Lake City for the very first time.

The Strand
This industrial dance band from Tempe, AZ caught national attention with their single "Chicks Suck (Guys Suck)," and they're now eager to unleash their brand new material on their neighbors to the north.

The aptly named Emergence have risen from Denver with a dark electro sound that straddles the line between gothic and industrial. They've been taking much of the country by storm in recent years; now it's Salt Lake turn.

Machinegun Symphony
These up-and-comers from Colorado Springs fuse synthpop/industrial with guitar-driven dark rock to create adrenaline-fueled mayhem with a shot of melancholy that's sure to move you.

The Dark Arts Band Committee would like to thank all the candidates for their submissions and their patience. The Utah band lineup will be announced on April 20. For more information, please visit Dark Arts Festival.
