Ryan Clark commented:

“The Demon Hunter ballad has been a defining aspect of our band since our very first album. My brother and I knew that if we wanted the freedom to pursue more somber, more melodic moments of creativity, we had to set that precedent from the beginning. What we didn’t realize then was just how important these songs would become to both the band and our fans.

The concept of an acoustic record is something we’ve been considering—and encouraged to pursue by fans—for many years. After ten studio albums, and a tour cycle that included a full acoustic set, it felt like the right time to actualize this idea. What we didn’t want to do is something we had done before. Though we’ve played many of these songs in acoustic fashion over the years, we’ve never done so with such a level of care and attention. We hope that comes across in these recordings.”

In other news, the group will also be performing the album in full during a livestream concert at Dark Horse Studios in Franklin, TN. The virtual event will be held on November 20 and tickets can be purchased HERE.

Demon Hunter Premiere “The Negative” Music Video

Demon Hunter have premiered a new video for their song “The Negative.” This track is from the band’s album “War,” which was released earlier this year along with another album called “Peace.”

Ryan Clark said the following:

“The video for ‘The Negative‘ was directed and edited by Oleg Masnyy. Oleg and I shot a variety of vignettes—including myself singing the song—as well as a number of moving objects to create texture and diversity.

We paired our shots with found footage, and edited the entire thing in a highly-crushed monochromatic style, utilizing only stark black, white, and red. Our goal was to create something that felt gritty and punk —like the song itself— influenced by ’90s DIY show posters and silkscreen shirt graphics.

The images, scenes, and objects themselves tie into the theme of the song, which is—to put it simply—the consistency of humankind’s failure.”

Demon Hunter Premiere “More Than Bones” Music Video

Demon Hunter have premiered a new video for their song “More Than Bones.” This track is from the band’s album “Peace,” which was released earlier this year along with another album called “War.”

Ryan Clark told Kerrang! the following:

“I was thinking of what an amazing thing music is, and the idea of preserving someone’s life beyond their death. There have been a lot of musicians’ deaths over the last few years that I’d started thinking about, whether that was Bowie or Prince or Waylon or Chris Cornell, and I thought, despite how tragic it is to lose those people, how awesome it is to have this catalog of music from each of those people.

There might be people generations from now who listen to this music, and it really helps them and changes their life in some positive way. So ‘More Than Bones‘ is basically saying that when I leave this earth, I’ll leave you more than bones—I’ll leave you all of my thoughts, and all of my hopes and dreams and my desire to connect and resonate with people through this music.”

Demon Hunter Premiere New Song “Ash”

Demon Hunter have premiered a new song titled “Ash.” This track is from the band’s new album “War,” which will be released on March 1 along with another new album titled “Peace.”

Ryan Clark told Loudwire the following:

“‘Ash’ is a no frills, anthemic onslaught, berating our infatuation with fleeting possessions. It’s a reminder to myself as much as anyone else. I collect pretty much everything I couldn’t afford as a kid: skateboards, shoes, artwork, antiques… you name it. And I love this stuff. Still, I know I can’t ‘take it with me’ as they say.

In classic Demon Hunter fashion, we wanted to ensure that War had at least one faster thrash number in the vein of ‘Storm the Gates of Hell,’ ‘Crucifix,’ or ‘The World Is a Thorn.’ ‘Ash’ is the resident barn burner track for this album. This was the last song that we’d written for the heavier of these two records, and is the only song written by Patrick, Jeremiah and myself.”

Demon Hunter Premiere “On My Side” Music Video

Demon Hunter have premiered a new video for their song “On My Side.” This track is from the band’s new album “War,” which will be released on March 1 along with another new album titled “Peace.” Ryan Clark commented:

“[We tried to] keep things straightforward with regards to the overall approach. Though the video is strictly performance, we did have some fun by filming each setup the same way a number of times using different lighting scenarios in each. This meant performing it the exact same way (hand motions, body positioning) over and over, but ultimately allowed us to toggle between looks while maintaining the same general positioning, which gives a really cool effect in the end.”
