Ceiling Demons, Hannah Slavin & Unofficial - M.I

jackofthearts Presents:

Ceiling Demons
Ceiling Demons are an alternative art-rap band from rural northern England. Born out of bereavement and taking influence from artists such as The Streets, Joy Division, Tricky and Serengeti. Combining poetic wordplay from front men and twin brothers; Psy Ceiling and Dan Demon over cinematic instrumentals, Ceiling Demons aim to strike your heartstrings with their intense and chaotic performances touching on themes of love and loss. Art over entertainment, delivered with a punk philosophy. The Demons are strong advocates of addressing mental health issues in their art and have worked extensively with suicide prevention charities such as CALM to raise awareness and funds for a cause close to their hearts. They’ve also supported the likes of Young Fathers, Sleaford Mods and Busdriver among other favourites and are championed by Louder Than War and NARC Magazine in the UK for their passionate live shows. Their critically acclaimed album Nil has been released by two independent record labels since it first emerged in late 2017 with Win Big Records initially putting out the album on CD and cassette formats before DIY record label; Butterfly Effect re-issued the album as a beautiful limited vinyl in 2018 with profits going towards mental health charity - Men Tell Health.

They start 2019 by returning to their second home of Leeds, along with a special live art show/exhibit by the elusive Art Demon - the long-term artwork collaborator of the band and former Leeds inhabitant Tim Coomber aka We-advance
