New Demons is I See Stars' fourth studio album, released on October 22, 2013 through Sumerian Records. The album was originally set for release on August 13, before being pushed back to September 17, and again to October 22 for unknown reasons. The album marks a progression of the sound in their previous album Digital Renegade, with Zach Johnson having a bigger vocal role. The song "Violent Bounce" was the first single to be released. It was uploaded to YouTube via the Sumerian Records channel. "Murder Mitten" and the title track, "New Demons", were to follow. The band did performances of the song "Ten Thousand Feet" to give fans a taste of what is going to be on the rest of the album before its release. Klayton of Celldweller, Mutrix, and Razihel all provided additional programming for some of the tracks.[6][7][8][9]

Information[edit]

The album had been worked on by the band immediately after their previous album, Digital Renegade, was finished. The song "Ten Thousand Feet" was the only song played from the album before it was released.

The song "Violent Bounce" was released as the first single from the album several months before the album release date, accompanied by a lyric video. The song "Murder Mitten" is written about brothers Devin and Andrew Oliver's relationship with their mother, who was an alcoholic during their childhood.[10] It is also the first song by I See Stars to feature vocals from Andrew Oliver, the band's drummer.
