NIGHT DEMON


***AMERICAN CLASSIC METAL TRIO'S 'LIVE DARKNESS' DOUBLE ALBUM RELEASED AUGUST 10TH ON SPV / STEAMHAMMER***

"Californian axe-wielders Night Demon are young dudes dedicated bone-deep to the galloping bass and soaring harmonies of the long lost New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. Why sound like 1979 if you don't have to? Because 1979 was pretty goddamn magnificent when it came to all the things hard and heavy, as evidenced by the Maiden-esque chug of 'Hallowed Ground', the Motörhead-y thrash 'Maiden Hell' or the Sabbath-soaked neo-doom of 'Stranger In The Room'. For most, Night Demon will sound new and vital, and they ought to. Pure headbanging bliss." Sleazegrinder, reviewing 'Darkness Remains', in Classic Rock, July 2017.

Mighty Californian classic metal trio Night Demon proudly announce the release of their double live album 'Live Darkness' on SPV / Steamhammer on August 10th as a 2CD DigiPak, triple 180 gram red vinyl gatefold LP (with printed inner sleeves + CD in cardboard case), download and stream.

The last year has been a whirlwind of activity for Night Demon since the release of their second album 'Darkness Remains', to feverish acclaim in April 2017. Night Demon garnered stellar reviews in publications and webzines all around the world, with writers hailing 'Darkness Remains' as a buy-or-die old-school metal record breathing new life into the timeless NWOBHM sound.

Fueled by these plaudits, Night Demon hauled in top honours in various year-end polls and lists. The readers of Germany's Deaf Forever magazine voted 'Darkness Remains' their #1 album of 2017; likewise, the listeners of the WCJU 'Metal on Metal' radio show in Cleveland, Ohio, voted 'Darkness Remains' the album of the year by a landslide, effortlessly beating out more than 80 other nominated albums. In September, the German Metal Hammer magazine recognized Night Demon with an award for the best "Up & Coming" band, as well as an invitation to perform at the 2018 awards show in Berlin.



As any seasoned fan will tell you, Night Demon strike hardest and burn hottest in a live setting. Befitting their road-warrior reputation, the band have already logged well over 100 performances worldwide in support of 'Darkness Remains'. In addition to headlining the 'Darkness over Europe' tour and their first-ever dates in the U.K. and Ireland, Night Demon spent five weeks in Europe supporting revered German metal masters Accept in January and February 2018.

Furthermore, Night Demon stormed countless festival stages in key markets in the United States and Europe. From the unknown to the prestigious, the underground to the mainstream, the esoteric to the popular, Night Demon crushed them all. True to form, the band have compiled a rigorous concert itinerary for the remainder of 2018, including European and North American headlining tour dates and festival-circuit engagements. Highlights include Night Demon's eagerly-anticipated debut at the hallowed ground of the Wacken Open Air Festival, and return appearances at the Bang Your Head and Rock Hard Festivals.

Through these achievements, Night Demon are fulfilling the promise and reaping the rewards of years spent toiling in anonymity in the trenches of the heavy metal underground. Since bursting on the scene with a self-titled EP in 2013 and embarking on the first of many DIY van tours, Night Demon have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to honing their craft, taking their music to the people, and building a loyal, die-hard following one fan at a time. No stage is too small and no stage is too large. In early 2015, the band took a massive step forward with the release of their full-length debut album, 'Curse of the Damned', followed by two more years of intense touring activities spanning three continents. In furtherance of their leadership role in the old-school metal community, Night Demon even host their own successful festival, Frost and Fire, in their hometown of Ventura, uniting headbangers from around the world every October.

Night Demon, comprised of Jarvis Leatherby (vocals/bass), Armand John Anthony (guitar), and Dusty Squires (drums), performed a very special gig in their adopted second home of Cleveland, Ohio, on December 2, 2017. Playing in front of a packed house of longtime friends and supporters at the Beachland Ballroom, the band wowed concertgoers with a comprehensive, career-spanning setlist, plus a lethal rendition of Midnight's 'Evil Like a Knife', featuring a guest appearance from Athenar himself. The entire show was recorded and now sees the light of day as 'Live Darkness', Night Demon's first ever official live release. Darkness has never shone so brightly.

***AMERICAN CLASSIC METAL TRIO'S 'DARKNESS REMAINS' NOVEMBER UK TOUR CONFIRMED***

"Californian axe-wielders Night Demon are young dudes dedicated bone-deep to the galloping bass and soaring harmonies of the long lost New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. Why sound like 1979 if you don't have to. Because 1979 was pretty goddamn magnificent when it came to all the things hard and heavy, as evidenced by the Maiden-esque chug of 'Hallowed Ground', the Motörhead-y thrash 'Maiden Hell' or the Sabbath-soaked neo-doom of 'Stranger In The Room'. For most, Night Demon will sound new and vital, and they ought to. Pure headbanging bliss."
Sleazegrinder, reviewing 'Darkness Remains', in Classic Rock, July 2017.

Mighty classic metal newcomers Night Demon, whose storming second album, 'Darkness Remains', was released on Steamhammer/SPV to huge acclaim in April, have lined up their first ever UK and Irish tour in November. Dates are:-

8th November EDINBURGH Bannerman's
9th November GLASGOW Nice n Sleazy
10th November SOUTHAMPTON The Firehouse
11th November LONDON The Dev (Camden)
12th November NEWCASTLE Trillions
13th November BELFAST Voodoo
14th November DUBLIN On The Rox

Night Demon, comprised of Jarvis Leatherby (vocals/bass), Armand John Anthony (guitar), and Dusty Squires (drums), erupted on to the underground metal scene around Ventura, an hour north of Los Angeles, with their self-titled four song EP in 2012. The ensuing notable street buzz lead to the band landing support slots on US tours with the likes of Diamond Head and Raven in 2013, plus a series of DIY van tours across mainland Europe in 2013 and 2014. Various European record companies who caught the band live were very interested in signing the band, but Night Demon chose to ink with Steamhammer / SPV Records to release their debut, full length album, 'Curse Of The Damned', in January 2015. Big Cheese rated it 7/10, Bruce Turnbull musing "Night Demon brandish leather-studded chops that bring to mind Iron Maiden, Saxon and Raven, with killer cuts such as 'Screams In The Night' and the striking 'Full Speed Ahead'. With a retro production, this three-piece scream NWOBHM, and those looking for a good headbanging will not want to miss it."
'Darkness Remains', a much more mature and accomplished offering than its predecessor, was awarded 10/10 in Powerplay by Tony Pijar in May 2017, who stated "Simply said, Night Demon puts on display everything that is great about metal. They take their cues from the NWOBMH…Ventura, California is far removed from that movement and England, but they have somehow locked into that hallowed time, and have subsequently created a metal masterpiece with 'Darkness Remains'."
Night Demon are then set to return to Europe in January 2018 to support ACCEPT on their six week tour, calling in to the UK too play at London's KOKO in Camden on February 8th.

NIGHT DEMON


***CELEBRATED CALIFORNIAN CLASSIC METAL TRIO'S SOPHOMORE 'DARKNESS REMAINS' ALBUM UNLEASHED APRIL 21ST ON STEAMHAMMER / SPV***

"This band kicks major ass and represents everything that was great about the NWOBHN. take heaping doses of Diamond Head, Jaguar, Holocaust, Tresspass and Angel Witch, add renewed vigor, a retro production, and then crank it up. As much as I loved the band's extended-play 'Curse Of The Damned' is much better. Every song is fierce, weighty and vintage. One could even use the word 'nostalgic' as a descriptive word here, but that implies, in some cases, irrelevance. Let me tell you this – Night Demon is not only relevant, but has leapt to the top of the new wave of traditional metal heap with this spectacular release. While the likes of Skull Fist, Stallion, Amulet, Cauldron, White Wizard, Holy Grail etc are all great bands, Night Demon trumps them with 'Curse Of The Damned'. 10/10"(Tony Pijar, Powerplay Magazine, February 2015).

Mighty classic metal newcomers Night Demon have announced the release of their storming second album, 'Darkness Remains', on April 21st on Steamhammer / SPV, as a digipak CD, 180 gram dark green vinyl LP, (with printed inner sleeves and CD in cardboard sleeve), plus download and stream. 'Darkness Remains', packed with exuberant, hard driving 'New Wave Of British Heavy Metal' inspired thrills and chills, is a much more mature, accomplished offering than its acclaimed predecessor, 'Curse Of The Damned'.

Jarvis Leatherby (vocals/bass), Armand John Anthony (guitar), and Dusty Squires (drums), have truly honed their songwriting chops significantly down. 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.



Night Demon erupted on to the underground metal scene around their picturesque beachside home town of Ventura an hour north of Los Angeles, with their self-titled four song EP in 2012. The ensuing notable street buzz lead to the band landing support slots on US tours with the likes of Diamond Head and Raven in 2013, plus a series of DIY van tours across Europe in 2013 and 2014. Numerous European record companies who caught the band live were very interested in signing the band, but Night Demon chose to ink with Steamhammer / SPV Records to release their debut, full length album, 'Curse Of The Damned', in January 2015.

Following the release of Curse Of The Damned', Night Demon set off on multiple crisscross headline US tours, as well as playing as special guests of heavyweights such as Carcass and Crobar. Their relentless touring in Europe, combined with rave reviews of 'Curse Of The Damned' led to the band scoring a high profile slot on the main stage of Germany's Bang Your Head Festival in July 2016. The band has already completed two tours of Mexico, and have just concluded a 20 date Jan/ Feb headline tour of South America. Following their March / April special guest shows on Anvil's 2017 US tour, Night Demon have lined up an extensive headline tour of Europe, culminating with a string of major festival appearances.

With each successive tour, Night Demon's live show has incorporated additional production elements, including innovative lighting, visual effects and the nightly onstage appearance of the band's black-cloaked skeletal mascot, Rocky, to haunt, goad and tempt concertgoers into drinking from the chalice.
