NIGHT DEMON release new album in April!

Ventura, California based Metal outfit NIGHT DEMON have proclaimed their epic return in 2017, which comes in the form of the band’s upcoming full length studio effort, Darkness Remains. The new album is the follow up to their debut record, Curse of the Damned, and is primed for an April 21st 2017 release on SPV/Steamhammer. In addition to the impending release of Darkness Remains, Night Demon is also pleased to announce that they will be embarking on a full European tour. The tour begins directly on the release date in Germany and will run ’til early June before the band will come back to Europe by the end of July.

Speaking about their journey on the path leading to the release of Darkness Remains, the members of NIGHT DEMON came together to state the following:

“Well it’s about time for Night Demon to release a new album!  It’s been quite the whirlwind for us touring the world over the last two years on Curse of the Damned.  We really wanted to give the existing fans a chance to digest the album and have a chance to see it live a few times.  We have been prepping for the new record for over a year, and now the moment is upon us to unleash this beast for one and all!  Very excited to continue our road journeys with some new material for the faithful, and the newcomers.  Night Demon is coming for you in 2017!” 

Darkness Remains delivers all the expected ‘New Wave of British Heavy Metal’ inspired thrills and chills, but also sees members, Jarvis Leatherby (vocals/bass), Armand John Anthony (guitar), and Dusty Squires (drums), honing their songwriting chops. Not only has the band’s overall sound matured, but the individual members have carved out their own niches, sharpened their attack, and even taken some chances along the way. Boasting a full, powerful, and clear production that retains a raw edginess, Darkness Remains sets the gold standard for how a traditional metal record should sound in 2017.

In addition to the upcoming album and touring, NIGHT DEMON remain active in their charitable efforts and have just launched the campaign for their annual “Metal Cares” program. Speaking about this project and their endeavors aimed at giving back to the community, the band comments:

“At least once a year we do a campaign for the Night Demon Metal Cares shirt.  Each year has a new design and they have ended up being some of the best merch we’ve done.  This year, our big brothers in Cirith Ungol have gotten in on the action to combine forces with us for an amazing T-shirt for the 2017 edition of Metal Cares. Recently our efforts have been focused on scholarships for the underprivileged in our community – working with the YMCA and Merch Relief in aiding victims of natural disasters, and that is the focus of this new design.

The current campaign runs from February 22nd through March 3rd. ALL PROFITS will be donated! Shirts are produced in response to pre-order and will print/ship once the campaign ends – at which time this exclusive design will be gone!”
