Australian raised brothers Jake and Luke Davies furthered their career in the states after a move to California and their band OF LIMBO pride themselves on making every show a party with their unique take on Heavy Rock N’ Roll. The band plays more than 100 shows per year, and have toured nationally with Wolfmother, Hinder, Candlebox, Buckcherry, Joyous Wolf, and Blue Oyster Cult, among others.
Their high-energy performances create an electric atmosphere that is infectious, making it impossible not to have fun. The band released ‘Let’s Go’ in 2022 with tracks that include ‘Happened Again, ‘Nothing But Now‘ ; ‘Nicotine‘; and ‘Fight For Your Right’ (Beastie Boys cover).
OF LIMBO are cranking up the van and heading out for a fall tour with Faster Pussycat in support of their latest release “California Demon” – Tour dates below. The band’s Jake Davies says “Going out on the road with absolute hard rock legends Faster Pussycat for 25 shows in 28 days?!?! This is going to be a November to Remember, baby!”
“California Demon” features wicked & sinewy dark guitar riffs, thunderous drums, a throbbing bass line, and a chorus as addictive as it is memorable. The band’s influences like Alice in Chains, Metallica and Faith No More shine through on the track.
The song was recorded at Fab Factory Studios and produced by Mike Pepe (Taking Back Sunday, Plain White T’s), with mixing and mastering done by Grammy Winner Jett Galindo. The song deals with the age-old concept of selling your soul in return for fame and fortune. It has been added to Key Hard Rock & Metal Playlists at Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Deezer, and Audiomack.
The band’s Luke Davies says “The song explores the concept of “selling your soul for fame and fortune” but in a literal sense. As if the devil was real and young, innocent and corruptible people are actually coming to Hollywood and selling their soul to become a star. There’s a large section of the population, like our conspiracy theory loving uncle, who believes this to be 100% fact/reality. He sends us videos of stars in interviews implying they sold their souls, or the latest Grammy performances, etc. from Sam Smith or mumble rappers dressed up as Satan. He doesn’t believe this is just pageantry. He thinks it’s all some kind of televised satanic ritual. It’s a concept we always felt was perfect for a rock song. Innocent girl comes to Hollywood with wide eyes and high hopes, only to find she has to sacrifice a lot more than she bargained for… HER SOUL”!
The video for “California Demon” was directed by Tony Vercelli and filmed at Baur Films in Long Beach and Nuvisions Studios in Santa Ana. It was produced by Todd Grilli of 4th Street Productions. The band’s Jake Davies says “Yes, we DID actually set Luke’s guitar on fire while he played it at the end. We had to douse Luke in flame retardant spray and pray to sweet baby Jesus that he didn’t get 3rd degree burns. It was definitely super sketchy at times! On a few takes I had to run in with a wet blanket to extinguish the flames”. Watch the video Here
