Dan checking in here.

We haven't done the best job keeping this site up to date, but if you've been following us on social media you'd know that this year we picked up a brand new drummer in Cory Detritus and kicked some ass at a couple of shows. We have one more show to go this year and it's going to be at our home base Lucky 13 Saloon in Brooklyn. We hope to see lots of you crazy fuckers there.

We have a lot planned for next year so stick around to see what's in store for you from Shadow of Demise.

From myself and the boys, have a kick ass holiday and keep it fuckin brutal.
