Ceiling Demons

This May, obscure alternative hip-hop dwellers Ceiling Demons are set to return with a new project, Belly of the Hopeless. Exploring the uncharted waters of the human psyche, this experimental tape delves through sounds, substances and the fine line between torment and delight. Produced by Jonathan Swift of Outside Your House and recorded in County Durham, UK, Belly of the Hopeless deals a blow of northern grit and rawness – an ongoing theme in the Demons’ work – intertwined with the trip-hop sensibilities of its Bristol-born producer. The EP has been mastered by Faithful Johannes and is scheduled for a digital & cassette release by Durham’s new DIY imprint, Frux Tapes, on 27th May 2016.

Belly of the Hopeless’ lead track, Stones, sees twin brothers Psy Ceiling and Dan Demon unpick cosmic realms, trading words as they paint pictures from darkness over the inventive soundscape of Jonathan Swift. We sink like stones…

The Demons are on tour over the coming months to coincide with this release, including a launch show, headlining the Tanners Arms in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne as part of Evolution Emerging 2016. For more information and tickets see here: https://evolutionemerging.com/
