Independent rock band Screaming at Demons recently introduced itself to the world in a big way when it partnered with the nationally known charity group Homeless Rock Stars. The band combined the video for its new song ‘Rock Star’ with footage from a Homeless Rock Stars event to make an emotionally moving and powerful to help raise money for the organization and introduce itself to the music community at large at the same time. Now the band has taken another huge step in getting its name out there. The band has enlisted the help of one of the most talented and respected drummers in the music community today to help record a pair of songs for its upcoming debut record.

Screaming at Demons announced this week that it has enlisted famed drummer Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chickenfoot) to record the drums for two of the songs to be included in the band’s upcoming album. Those songs are ‘Our Time’ and ‘All Of Me.’ Smith’s inclusion on the album, which currently has no set release date, is rooted in his friendship with AD bassist Chris Clemmence. Having previously performed live with Smith, Clemmence had a first hand understanding of and appreciation for Smith’s work behind the kit, leading to Clemmence asking Smith to lend his talents to the band’s new record. When asked about those talents, Clemmence responded telling reporters, “Chad is a legend and phenomenal powerhouse of a drummer. We are beyond honored to have him play on our two new upcoming singles. His feel and groove have brought our songs to a new level. We are so lucky to have him as well as an all-star team working on our music.”

That list includes the likes of: Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Cher, Bon Jovi, Seal, Meatloaf, Three Days Grace, Aerosmith, Shinedown, Deftones, and countless others.  Alge was asked by reporters his thoughts on working with SAD.  his response showed just how excited he is to work with front man Shimon Moore and fellow SAD band mates Russell Ali and Chris Clemmence.  He had only positive things to say of working with the band, noting of the group, “A new level of excitement is coming from these boys and they are giving back to people in need and making music that instantly makes you wanna be a part of it!”  While fans wait for Alge, and the members of SAD to finish the band’s new album, they can check out the band’s video for its inspirational and infectious song ‘Rock Star.’ It can be viewed online now via YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0g7QiwkAe4&feature=youtu.be.

Next Tuesday, Screaming At Demons will debut the video for its new song ‘Rock Star.’ The video, a six-minute music video/documentary hybrid will debut on the band’s Vevo channel. The video’s intent is to help benefit the nationally known homeless organization Homeless Rock Stars. The brainchild of photographer Nigel Skeet, Homeless Rock Stars officially went global this summer.

Screaming at Demons front man Shimon Moore travelled to Redding, California this summer to film and take part in a Homeless Rock Stars youth event. The result of the event is the video for the song, whose sales will go to benefit Homeless Rock Stars. More than seventy members of the Redding community took part in the event. Their contributions included interviewing and restoring members of the local homeless population. Among the volunteers at the event were local members of the local city council, community leaders, and business leaders. The recent event is just the first phase of Homeless Rock Stars’ plans. Events have already been planned to take place across America throughout 2016.

Screaming at Demons will release ‘Rock Star’ worldwide next Tuesday, October 6th at 10pm ET/7pm PST. It will not be available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify or any other online outlet. The only way that the song can be purchased is through donations to Homeless Rock Stars. Audiences will be given a number to which they can text at the end of the video in order to donate. After donating, the song will be sent directly to users’ phones and e-mail. The United Way of Northern California is the fiscal agent of Homeless Rock Stars.
