Hideous Sun Demon make a hectic return with the release of ‘Gimmicks’

Spending much of 2019 on the road with their EP Good TimeHideous Sun Demon are back with what is perhaps their most direct piece of music yet – the cranking ‘Gimmicks’. Somewhere between Eddy Current Suppression RingGang of Four and King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, the newest from Hideous Sun Demon will sit well with longtime fans, while introducing a new and tight sound to the public as a whole.
Hideous Sun Demon went back to the drawing board when conceptualising this new phase of the band and what they wanted it to sound like. Working with Casey Hartnett (King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard)Jeremy Giddings (Hot House Studios) and Joe Carra (Crystal Mastering), ‘Gimmicks’ came together as a reimagination of the music the trio loves, the essence of their dynamic as performers. 

Last year, Hideous Sun Demon were honing their craft on stages throughout Europe, with the Good Time EP bringing them to radars of many. Following 2018’s FAME, EROTIC, DREAM album, their 2019 material showcased a band that was further exploring their sonic identity. Heading into 2020, Hideous Sun Demon are flexing their songwriting and live muscles more than ever.
