    Episode #131 - Outsider (Single) - Part 2

    Episode #131 - Outsider (Single) - Part 2

    This week, we conclude our two-part deep dive into Night Demon's new single, "Outsider."  We begin with on-air commentary from Bill Peters upon the debut playing of the song on Cleveland's WJCU Metal on Metal radio show.  From there, we explore the single artwork, how it came about, and how it is or is not related to the new album artwork and other album/single covers from Night Demon's past.  You will hear an in-depth discussion of the lyrics, going line by line and addressing both how they relate to the album concept and their more universal applications.  Then Jarvis, Armand and Dusty take you through the isolated tracks of each of their respective performances, offering insights into what they played, how it was written, what gear was used, and the recording process.  The guys also describe the "Outsider" music video shoot, and offer their concluding thoughts on the song.

    Episode #130 - Outsider (Single) - Part 1

    Episode #130 - Outsider (Single) - Part 1

    Hot on the heels of last week's album announcement and release of first single "Outsider," this podcast episode delves into the origins and evolution of that song.  Jarvis, Armand and Dusty offer their thoughts for how "Outsider" fits into the Night Demon discography, how it sets the theme for the forthcoming album, and how it may be viewed as a substantial departure from anything the band have ever done before.  Then they walk you step by step through riff tapes and demos, from the very beginnings of the track (with a working title of "High Strangeness") all the way through its final incarnation.  You'll even hear about the recording process at The Captain's Quarters in Ventura, California, with Armand juggling multiple responsibilities from recording to engineering to playing guitar to figuring out his own parts.

    Episode #127 - Year of the Demon Tour - Hello Cleveland!

    Episode #127 - Year of the Demon Tour - Hello Cleveland!

    On September 30 and October 1, 2022, Night Demon closed out the Year of the Demon Tour with a very special pair of gigs at the Maple Grove Tavern in Cleveland, Ohio.  Showcasing two completely different setlists (no overlapping songs) and playing before sold-out crowds from all over America in their second home in Cleveland, Night Demon pulled out all the stops for these shows. In this week's episode, you'll hear about these legendary performances, including extensive audio clips from the shows themselves, commentary from the band members, and on-site interviews with many of the fans about their impressions and reactions.  The band also talk about what they did after the Cleveland shows, and discuss what's next for Night Demon, including preparations to launch a brand-new record in early 2023. Stay tuned ...

    Episode #126 - Year of the Demon Tour - Return to America

    Episode #126 - Year of the Demon Tour - Return to America

    This week's episode focuses on Night Demon's return to America after a triumphant run of gigs through Canada in September 2022. You will hear in-depth commentary surrounding the band's travels to Texas and their weeknight shows in San Antonio and Austin.  As to the San Antonio show, Jarvis, Armand and Dusty describe playing in a strip mall after eating long-expired chicken soup, and talk about the challenges of playing a fan-prepared setlist, including one song they hadn't performed live in six years. They then explore the symbolism of returning to The Lost Well in Austin, including the city's significance to the band and the "full circle" nature of returning there post-pandemic. You'll hear what happened when an overexuberant fan spilled beer on Jarvis and made his bass go out of tune. Along the way, there are live audio clips of both gigs. The band then discuss Night Demon's first trip to Cleveland since the historic Live Darkness recordings in 2017, and explain the importance of celebrating Bill Peters' 40th anniversary of hosting the Metal on Metal weekly radio show on WJCU.

Behind the scenes with a great band

I got in Night Demon with the release of the “Darkness Remains” album, and the band quickly became a favorite of mine. BUT, you don’t have to be a Night Demon fanatic to enjoy this podcast. Jarvis, Armand and Dusty go into great detail about the process of being a working band, particularly on songwriting and recording. The three-part series on the writing and recording of “Are You Out There?” is like a masterclass on crafting a song. As a fan, and someone interested in the work that goes into being a professional, working band, I’m looking forward to digging into all the deep-dives.
