Demons is a heavy four-piece punk band from Norfolk, Virginia, that pull from dimensions of noise rock, sludge and hardcore to generate a sound that has been described as “raw and confrontational fury.” Demons’ offering, Swallow, is a blast of all-killer-no-filler force that will appeal to fans of music characterized by chaotic energy and deeply rooted aggression expressed in a beautiful balance of ultra-catchy, driving riffs, burly grooves and angular dissonance. Fans of The Bronx, Converge, METZ and Every Time I Die will find lots to love here.

Swallow saw release via cassette and digital on September 2 via Knife Hits Records (Rid of Me, Nerver, Cherubs). Order it here.

“The EP was the result of us telling ourselves to write songs that would last about one minute long.” – comments the band’s vocalist and guitarist Zach Gehring.

“It was in the middle of COVID and we didn’t really have much else to do, so we just continued to write. One-minute-songs are not too far out of our wheelhouse, but it was interesting to approach it with strategic intention.

“Lyrically, it’s not conceptual at all. We have consistent, but general themes, but it’s episodic. The title of the EP reflects a begrudged, perversely self-sabotaging, reconciliation to our lived experience.”
