Smith.
Des Demonas features Ryan Hicks on drums, Mark Cisneros on guitar, Joe Halladay on bass, and Paul Vivari on Farfisa organ.
Their previous and other current projects includes Kid Congo And The Pink Monkey Birds, Foul Swoops, Benjy Ferree, Suns of Guns, Wayne Kramer, Thee Snuff Project, Citygoats, The Apes, Thee Lolitas, Deathfix, Medications, and M easles Mumps Rubella."
