Longtime Mae guitarist Zach Gehring has started a new band called Demons. The band doesn’t share much in common sonically with Mae, however, as you can hear in the teaser below; it sounds more like Queens Of The Stone Age-esque riff-rock.
Gehring explains the motivations behind starting the band:
“[These songs] were not ideas that could be developed in Mae. I wanted to do something harder, less crafted, something more abrasive. Conceptually, or lyrically, I was more interested in problematizing myself and throwing tacks on the road, so to speak.”
Their debut EP, Great Dismal, will be released on Spartan Records June 16 and can be preordered here. Check out the cover art and tracklisting below.
