Austin-based stoner rockers Demons My Friends release the first single »Bring The Night« taken from their debut album, to be released in early 2023.

Packed with hefty stoner grooves, a fine concoction of swagger-laden riffage and sharp-edged heavy metal licks, and gripping and magnetic vocals, Demons My Friends’ debut single »Bring The Night« fits just right in between »Deliverance«-era Corrosion Of Conformity and the hook-laden fuzz of fellow Austin rockers High Desert Queen.

Debut single »Bring The Night« was written on the spot, at Red Nova Ranch in March 2022, after guitarist and vocalist Pablo Anton had just performed at SXSW’s stoner and doom metal showcase Stoner Jam with his band Fellowcraft. Neither of the band members had been able to tour or play any shows with their other projects since early 2020 (aside from a couple of single shows in late 2021 in New York City and Mexico City), and they also separately had to battle mental health issues during the lockdowns. The opportunity to meet again in Austin after so long was cathartic, and after sharing some of their personal struggles over beers, the three musicians decided to embark on a new musical project together that would be born precisely from those bad experiences, with the purpose of putting out into the world a message that is very needed during these difficult times. “We are not alone. We are all collectively feeling the same sense of despair and loneliness… and if we are all feeling it together, then there is a way we can build ‘community’ by being open about it”. The three-day session at Red Nova Ranch, which was recorded and produced by Jeff Henson (Phil Anselmo, Spirit Adrift, Duel, Greenbeard) and mastered by Alberto de Icaza, reaped three new songs that will serve as the first three singles of the band’s debut full-length album, set to be released in the Spring of 2023.

Demons My Friends is a Mexican stoner/doom band based in Austin TX, which features members of the well-known Mexican rock band QBO and the Washington DC-based band Fellowcraft. The concept of the band explores the inner journey its members have embarked on since the onset of the Covid pandemic; confronting inner demons and battling anxiety, depression, self-doubt, and rage, while teaching themselves how to turn these demons into their “friends”. Hence the name of the band. Sonic influences for this project include Monolord, King Buffalo, All Them Witches and Baroness, among others. »Bring The Night« is the first single of their upcoming debut album, to be released in early 2023. The track was produced and mixed by Jeff Henson (Duel, Greenbeard, Spirit Adrift) and mastered by Alberto de Icaza.
