The Demon Parade have become synonymous with daisy cutter psychedelic melodies and thundering guitar riffs around Australia as they have played their own headline tours and sold out launches, as well as gracing the stage with the likes of Swervedriver, British India, and the Brian Jonestown Massacre. Front man and lead guitarist Michael Badger was joined wielding guitars last year by former Treetops front man Jordan Speering with sweet harmonies now sprinkled over their reverb drenched licks.
Teaming up with Dandy Warhols/Elliot Smith producer Tony Lash, the band have almost completed work on their much anticipated debut album. As such they’re about to treat fans to a new single, ‘To The Mountain’, which sees the band evoking the widescreen guitars of Echo & The Bunnymen and the wall of feedback production of the Jesus & Mary Chain to reveal a startling evolution in their sound. The single is currently available on iTunes and if you’re lucky you can get it for a VERY limited time as a free download
The Demon Parade will be launching ‘To The Mountain’ in Melbourne at rock n’ roll ground zero, The Tote, on Friday 20th May. Joining them for a massive night are the haze pop sensations RedBerryPlum and hotly tipped surfabilly punks King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. Opening up proceedings with Mary of The Moon, doors open at 8pm and you’d best get down early as this one will be rammed. You can head to www.oztix.com.au to get your tickets OR head over to www.tonedeaf.com.au/win where you can enter to win a double pass to the launch show and we might even have a copy of the rare as hen’s teeth radio promo copies of the single to have waiting on the door for you if you win!
