Demons celebrate first show in over a year by releasing new music video comprised of footage from last show they played with DOA and Dead Kennedys. You can check out the video for Play Acting Virtue Below.
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.
