Demons, the second album in the four-volume Nomad Series on Cowboy Junkies own Latent Recordings. A collection of songs by the late Vic Chesnutt, Demons is
described by frontman Michael Timmins as a labour of love that explores Chesnutt s deep and much overlooked catalogue. Demons follows the critically acclaimed first volume of the series, Renmin Park, which The Boston Herald called their most ambitious album yet.
The band approached Chesnutt s music with the same sense of adventure that Chesnutt approached his own recordings. Timmins says, We let happy accidents happen and tried to invest his songs with the same spirit in which they were written, but at the same time adding our own Northern spin. Exploring his songs and delving deeper and deeper into them has been an intense, moving and joyous experience. I don t think Vic would have wanted it any other way.
