DEVIANT UK has signed on to support the event.
Deviant UK formed in 2004 as a synthpop band [although pseudo-metal guitars were also a key part of the sound]. The band name was initially picked as it was how the frontman described his outlook on life, ostensibly as 'something or someone outside the accepted norm' but often specifically focussing on a bacchanalian world of deviant sex, absolute hedonism and.egomania. Inspired primarily by his self-confessed hero Gary Numan, Smith candidly admitted his desire to live the fabled 'Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll' lifestyle although this caricature occasionally belies his idiosyncratic songwriting style and clear talent for crafting anthemic, memorable and occasionally bombastic electronic pop.

WHERE THE EMBERS FALL
The founding members of Where the Embers Fall met in Detroit, MI and formed their project in 2004. They combine different styles of electronic music, including Gothic/Darkwave and elements of Industrial to create hauntingly beautiful melodies. It is an expression of personal experiences, struggles, and life changing events in an effort to find inner balance and meaning within them.
