DEMON HUNTER + LOUDWIRE PREMIERE NEW SONG “ASH” — LISTEN
NEW ALBUMS WAR AND PEACE OUT TOMORROW, MARCH 1
Demon Hunter and Loudwire have teamed up to premiere the new song “Ash.” Listen here.
“‘Ash’ is a no-frills, anthemic onslaught, berating our infatuation with fleeting possessions,” singer Ryan Clark told Loudwire. “It’s a reminder to myself as much as anyone else. I collect pretty much everything I couldn’t afford as a kid: skateboards, shoes, artwork, antiques… you name it. And I love this stuff. Still, I know I can’t ‘take it with me’ as they say.”
He continued, “In classic Demon Hunter fashion, we wanted to ensure that War had at least one faster thrash number in the vein of ‘Storm the Gates of Hell,’ ‘Crucifix,’ or ‘The World Is a Thorn.’ ‘Ash’ is the resident barn burner track for this album. This was the last song that we’d written for the heavier of these two records, and is the only song written by Patrick, Jeremiah, and myself.”
The band will drop two new albums, War and Peace, via Solid State Records on March 1. “Ash” appears on War. The ambitious efforts are the follow-ups to 2017’s Outlive, and were recognized and lauded by Decibel, who said, “metalcore survivors make their best album, ever — twice.” Metal Injection also labeled the new material as “blissful melodeath.”
Revolver premiered the video for “On My Side.” Watch it here.
Demon Hunter also recently relaunched their fan-club Blessed Resistance. Further info is available here.
