“…recalls ’90s Touch & Go/AmRep type stuff (or newer bands like METZ) and puts a fresh, exciting spin on it.”- Brooklynvegan

“Privation finds Demons in fighting form, delivering a more focused yet just as intense attack as their previous album, 2017’s Embrace Wolf and handful of EPs/singles.”- No Echo

“Jamming through a cool mix that deftly bridges the gap between punkier mid-era Converge and At the Drive In-esque aggressive indie, ‘Privation’ the second full-length from Norfolk, Virginia’s Demons establishes a beautiful balance between ultra-catchy, driving riffs, burly grooves and angular dissonance.”- Decibel Magazine

Demons have unveiled a music video for the track “Play Acting Virtue” which is now streaming here: 

Demons’ Zach Gehring says, “We are playing our first show in over a year this Friday, so we wanted to share this video from the last show we played back in March of 2020 with DOA and Dead Kennedys at the Norva.”

The heavy, experimental project of Gehring (who also plays guitar in Mae) Demons dropped their latest album ‘Privation,’ on April 30 via Spartan Records.

Of the album’s title, Gehring explains, “(it’s) concerned with loss, deprivation and lack, In our context — this is reflective of where we are at personally, culturally, and politically. It’s a structural aspect of our lived experience — and it is particularly aggravated of late.”

Drawing from the spirit of bands like Metz, Gulch, Converge, Propagandhi, the Demons crew (the aforementioned Gehring, Chris Mathews [vocals/guitar], Jonathan Anderson [bass], Drew Orton [drums]) punishingly delivers ten tracks of raw and confrontational fury, motivated from within a spiraling sociopolitical landscape that evokes critical self-reflection and frustration

More Praise for Demons:

“…a trip through hell and back…”- Revolver

“…Simply put, it’s a banger…”- Loudwire

“…a mix of Hot Water Music’s aggressive punk and Queens of the Stone Age’s hypnotic hard rock, but it also has too much spirit to just be boiled down to a couple comparisons.”- BrooklynVegan

“…deserves your full attention.”- AltDaily
