1990s underground metal legends The Clay People are returning with a new album later this month! Demon Hero and Other Extraordinary Phantasmagoric Anomalies & Fables on September 28th. The new 11-song album was recorded at OverIt Studios in Albany, NY. The Clay People started originally as a prominent industrial band Clay People but also had a varying style of alternative metal music that made an impact at the time. You can watch the lyric video for the first single, ‘Illuminatus’, below.

Own Worst Enemy
Singer Dan Neet described the album as “capturing us at a creative peak that was forged from what was, at times, a tenuous, cathartic and finally unifying recording process that reinvigorated and focused the band.”
The Clay People also called in extended members of its musical family to contribute to Demon Hero, with Chris Wyse (Hollywood Vampires, Ace Frehley, The Cult, OWL) contributing bass to the band’s reinterpretation of fan favorite ‘Strange Day’ and ‘genRX.’ Walter Flakus of Stabbing Westward and one-time Clay People member contributed keys, and programmer Wade Alin, who appeared on the band’s self-titled release, returns here as well.
