Jarvis Leatherby Says:

"While Night Demon has been spending most of our time in Europe and other countries having already performed 150 plus shows on this album cycle, it's time to announce our return home.  We have been blessed to be a part of some great major market festivals stateside since the release of Darkness Remains.  Namely Ozzfest, Frost and Fire III and Strikefest in Southern California, Defenders of the Old in New York, Spring Bash in Milwaukee and Hell's Heroes in Houston. Many of you have been calling for headlining North American tour on this album, and that is exactly what we are going to deliver.  Looking forward to raging with all our friends and fans."

NIGHT DEMON will be on tour in support of their latest full-length studio effort, Darkness Remains(Century Media), the follow up to their debut record Curse of the Damned. Darkness Remains received critical acclaim, earning the band their first Metal Hammer Award for Up & Coming in Berlin, Germany.

Darkness Remains delivers all the expected 'New Wave of British Heavy Metal' inspired thrills and chills, but also sees the band honing their songwriting chops. Not only has the band’s overall sound matured, but the individual members have also carved out their own niches, sharpened their attack, and even taken some chances along the way. Hitting No. 1 on BRAVEPICKS 2017, Brave Words states “Darkness never looked so bright!” while Cryptic Rock gives Darkness Remains 5 out of 5 stars saying “There simply are not enough positive words out there to express all of the joy Darkness Remains will bring Heavy Metal lovers” and proclaims “expect to be absolutely blown away.”

Boasting a full, powerful, and clear production that retains a raw edginess, Darkness Remains sets the gold standard for how a traditional metal record should sound in 2018.
