Demons Past has quickly evolved into one of the more exciting and musically diverse original bands to come out of the North East in recent years. Their influences range from jazz, classic rock, metal, grunge and rap, fusing them into a sound that is uniquely their own….
“Demons Past” started with drummer Pat Gallo, guitarist Nick Gall0, and bassist Dan Duguay after their previous band had parted ways. A few months later Pat met singer Kevin James Frear at a local bar singing karaoke. Kevin hadn’t fronted a band in a few years and was very interested in getting back to writing and performing again. The following Thursday evening the four got together for Kevin’s audition and everything clicked.
In October of 2011 the band played their first two shows showcasing their new original material to positive audience reaction. Unfortunately by the time the second show came up Pat had made the difficult decision to leave the band after that performance for personal reasons.
Nick, Dan and Kevin continued to work on new original and cover material while keeping an eye out for a new drummer. Through some mutual friends and connections the band was introduced to drummer Bryan Schon about a month and a half after Pat’s departure. After watching a video of him drumming the guys decided to have him over to audition. The entire band got together for the first time December 4, 2011 for an audition that turned into a full on practice. It was obvious from the start that Bryan’s style, energy and drumming instincts are a perfect fit for the group.
The band at this time is continuing to write and record original songs for their upcoming debut CD while continuing to hit the road in full-force with new music and a lot of bottled up energy!
