Jarvis Leatherby Says:

“While Night Demon has been spending most of our time in Europe and other countries having already performed 150 plus shows on this album cycle, it’s time to announce our return home. We have been blessed to be a part of some great major market festivals stateside since the release of Darkness Remains. Namely Ozzfest, Frost and Fire III and Strikefest in Southern California, Defenders of the Old in New York, Spring Bash in Milwaukee and Hell’s Heroes in Houston. Many of you have been calling for headlining North American tour on this album, and that is exactly what we are going to deliver. Looking forward to raging with all our friends and fans.”
