Concert Crap: Can you talk about a brief history of the band?
Jeff Azar: I think Jovan (RIP) and Marc met a school full of deliquent hooligan kids. I met them while they were putting ham on a guys car who was trying to steal Jovan’s girlfriend. I joined in. We bonded and started playing together
CC: What does your band name mean?
JA: We loved the word Demi which stems from Demi-God so we figured if you want to be a Demi-God then you have to be a daredevil. We fused the two together which left us with DEMI THE DAREDEVIL.
CC: Who are some of your musical inspirations?
JA: Muse. Green Day. Blink. Queen. The Used. My Chemical Romance. Twenty One Pilots. Show tunes. 90s soft rock. Pop punk.
CC: Who would you like to tour with realistically and un realistically?
JA: Realistically, Mariah Carrey. Did you see her big apple incident? I’d want her to take charge like that when there are technically difficulties. You need a woman like that. She is a good sport.
Unrealistically…. someone like Panic or TøP or Awolnation or Jon Bellion.
CC: What does the rest of 2017 have in store for you guys?
JA: We are going to circle around regionally in Texas a lot. Playing a few showcases in Nashville. Hopefully develop more of a regional fan base. Oh, and release a track every two months. Also we have a deal with a distribution and licensing company called the Orchard, so hoping to land a song in a show or movie. I’d thank my lucky stars. We need money just like anyone else.
CC: Is there anything else you’d like to say to your fans or anyone that may be reading this interview at all?
JA: Yes. Change the soundtrack of your existence. Don’t live in your mind too much.
Don’t get too comfortable with distractions. Unplug and be quiet with yourself more often. And I hope you keep in touch with us so you feel less alone with your struggles. Our latest EP is out Secret Schizoid. Go to demithedaredevil.com and you get it for free with an email.
