Stoner rockers Demons My Friends to release their second single »We Are The Resistance« on November 25!

Austin, Texas based Mexican stoner rockers Demons My Friends will release their second single »We Are The Resistance« on November 25, following the overwhelmingly positive response of their debut single, »Bring The Night«, which came out in September. Their full debut album is expected in Spring 2023.

A fine concoction of fuzzed-out riffage, sad interludes and creepy and hypnotic vocals, Demons My Friends’ new single »We Are The Resistance« is a song of hope in times of despair. Inspired by the ongoing illegal and unjust invasion of Ukraine, this song fits just right between Fu Manchu’s heavy fuzzed out guitar tones and the dark ambiance of Swedish melodic metal masters Katatonia.

The new single »We Are The Resistance« 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 other 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.
