Ceiling Demons Short Info

Ceiling Demons are an alternative hip hop group from North Yorkshire, seeking to capture the rawness of human emotion in rhythms and rhymes. They take influence from acts such as The Streets, Tricky, and Roots Manuva. Ceiling Demons self-released their debut album, Dual Sides, in December 2013 with juxtaposed themes of escapism, desperation and unity. The album is a concept piece that aims to confront the human condition. It has been endorsed by the likes of Earmilk, Don't Panic!, Louder Than War and The Yorkshire Evening Post. The legendary hip hop group Arrested Development has said of the Demons: "It's great to hear hip hop with sincerity again." The group – comprising of identical twin brother MCs Psy Ceiling and Dan Demon, has also gained the support of BBC 6 Music's Tom Robinson (who dubbed the Demons' work as "amazingly powerful and heartfelt"), Scroobius Pip on XFM and Jericho Keys of BBC Introducing in York and North Yorkshire. In 2014 they teamed up with the mental health charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) to release 'Every Step' and help raise awareness of support available for the prevention of suicide. The Demons have supported, Astronautalis, Sleaford Mods, De La Soul, Buck 65, Stanley Odd, Busdriver and the Mercury Music Prize-winning Young Fathers. They have also played at festivals including Tramlines, YO1, Doune The Rabbit Hole, Richmond Live, Twisterella & Evolution Emerging. In May 2016 the Demons released the experimental ‘Belly of the Hopeless’ via Frux Tapes, embodying the spirit of punk and the heart of trip-hop, the EP attracted attention from the likes of Earmilk and Louder Than War, with the latter rating it 9/10. Later that year they released the split 7" single 'Lost The Way' with Maggie8 on Come Play With Me.

2017 marked a new chapter for the band with the release of 'Nil', a narrative album that searches the void to find it masked by opposites, where all can be found in nothing. The record was accompanied with a DIY UK Tour & was praised by the likes of Louder Than War (9/10), The Revue & NARC Magazine.
