TRACK PREMIERE: Des Demonas "Bay of Pigs"

posted Thursday Oct 4th, 2018

Washington DC band Des Demonas have exploded into the national consciousness with a debut LP on In The Red a few months back, and they're not letting up now. We've got the world premiere of their latest single "Bay of Pigs" streaming here today, as diseased organ-soaked and fizz-drenched as it can get. If you couldn't tell already, sometimes a song is just tailor-made for VoT, and "Bay of Pigs" keeps it real with it's pounding chorus "Living like a Victim of Tiiiiiime" so naturally this works on many levels. Featuring a guitar player from Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds, who also did time in the Make Up, its got credentials to spare, but this six-foot-five Kenyan lead singer is gonna steal the show for certain.

There's a faint Deadly Snakes vibe when the organ tone really hits, too, but this is much, much, heavier and less quaint, with the gutteral vocals steering this into a stomping mess of noise. Far more rambunctious and unholy, far more strained and angry, this track "Bay of Pigs" premiering here is from the band's forthcoming single on Black Gladiator Records, so crank it up and don't miss Des Demonas opening up for the Scientists on tour this week in NYC and Chicago!
