Demon Lung to Reissue Debut EP Pareidolia Feb. 23

Posted in Whathaveyou on December 7th, 2017 by JJ Koczan

In the what-will-be six years since they first released their debut EP, Pareidolia (review here), in 2012, and in addition to the accomplishments the PR wire lays out below with their two albums and stage pedigree, doomers Demon Lung have made themselves at home at festivals like Psycho Las Vegas, Doom in June and Southwest Terror Fest. I guess the point is their list of accomplishments is not minor. Only fitting then to go back these years later and reexamine how they got started, and as Pareidolia emerges in this new incarnation via M-Theory Audio on preorder-available LP, it comes with four bonus tracks — the original “Pray for Rain” and covers of Wounded Giant, Danzig and Twisted Sister.

I’ve been fortunate enough to see Demon Lung play in their hometown (review here), and though it was a while ago now, I still feel like I’d be very much interested in hearing what they could do with both “How the Gods Kill” and “Captain Howdy.” Remember when Drain STH covered that on the Strangeland soundtrack? I do, because I’m old as dirt.

On that note, here’s the PR wire with more relevant info:

DEMON LUNG TO REISSUE DEBUT RECORD, ‘PAREIDOLIA,’ ON M-THEORY

ALBUM TO BE RELEASED ON LIMITED-EDITION COLORED VINYL W/BONUS TRACKS ON FEB 23RD

Las Vegas female-fronted Doom Metal band DEMON LUNG have built quite a reputation for themselves via 2 critically acclaimed albums on Candlelight and live appearances all over the west coast with bands like Candlemass, Crowbar, Venom Inc., High On Fire, Eyehategod, Today Is the Day, Saint Vitus, Pentagram and more.

On February 23rd, DEMON LUNG will reissue their previously self-released 2012 CD EP, Pareidolia, onto Vinyl for the first time. Limited to 500 copies on Black & Green Marble, Pareidolia will include 4 bonus tracks, including covers of Twisted Sister’s “Captain Howdy” and Danzig’s “How the Gods Kill”.

“With every studio session we’ve ever done, we always throw down on some of our favorite covers at the end of live tracking,” explains drummer Jeremy Brenton. “This was just the perfect time to open the vault and pull out our favorites.”

In addition, DEMON LUNG have included an old, original track. “’Pray For Rain’ is a song that we recorded around the same time as the original Pareidolia EP. We wanted to keep it to 4 songs so we dropped it before finishing the solo section”, clarifies Jeremy.

Finally, the reissue includes a surprise cut, a cover of Seattle friends and frequent touring partners Wounded Giant’s “The Road to Middian.”

“We jammed the song with Wounded Giant at the end of their set on tour every night,” clarifies Jeremy. “[Wounded Giant singer/guitarist] Bobby James came down to hang out with us and we figured we should try to record it for posterity.”

“We are still very proud of the original EP and are stoked to have it finally issued on vinyl through M-Theory! Why now? I don’t really have a good answer for that. We wanted to put it on Vinyl and we had enough to fill up the other side. Lol.”
