2017 has been a rather interesting year. We’ve been lucky enough to fill our pages with some incredible creative talent, so we asked a few of them to share some thoughts on the year just gone. We caught up with Ceiling Demons, to take a little look back through the highs and lows of their year…

So, how was your 2017? 
2017 was a big year for us Demons, as we put out a new record, booked a DIY tour up and down the UK and met some lovely souls along the voyage. 

What was your best moment?
For us it was the release of Nil, our latest album on Durham based Win Big Records.

And your worst moment?
We had some issues with some promoters which caused a lot of stress and some cancellations but you have to take all highs with the lows.

Your favourite band of the year?
A difficult question to answer but one of our favourites is definitely The Black Sheep Frederick Dickens. They put out their first EP on Butterfly Effect late last year and have slayed every show we’ve seen in 2017, plus they’re rounding off the year with a special show in Richmond, North Yorkshire on the 28th December in aid of CALM.

Your favourite song of the year?
Spokes by Outside Your House, taken from the brilliant album Gallant Encounters.

Favourite TV of the year?
Anthony Joshua vs. Wladimir Kilitschko

Favourite venue of the year?
This year, a favourite of ours has been The Green Room in Stockton on Tees.

What was your favourite gig of the year?
Music Box Festival in Darlington was a certain highlight as well as NARC Fest! Also thoroughly enjoyed Waskerley Way & Grey Tapes at Empty Shop in Durham.

What gifts are on your letter to Santa this year?
Stout & smokes, always.

And finally, what has 2018 got in store for you?
We’ll keep the Nil fire burning throughout the Winter. Beyond that there are a few projects in the works including a feature on London electronic outfit LegPuppy’s new album and a number of live dates in the works, but for now let us live in this moment.

Thursday 28th December sees Ceiling Demons in their hometown of Richmond, North Yorkshire. The bill features them alongside The Black Sheep Frederick Dickens, Jennifer Walton and Rosey PM and is in aid of suicide prevention charity CALM.
