The seven members of CLIFFDIVER wanted to make a record that really represented who they were.
Released by SideOneDummy Records, Exercise Your Demons is the first full length LP they’ve written, and features what they now consider to be their final line-up. Produced by Seth Henderson and mastered by Wil Yip, the record not only captures the musical essence of the band, but the true meaning of the past, and the future.
The nine songs that comprise Exercise Your Demons fling the door wide open musically for the band while also making important statements about mental health. It is a deep exploration of grief inspired by a recurring dream that lead vocalist, Joey Duffy had about a late ex-fiancée.
Both Duffy and co-lead vocalist Briana Wright have survived suicide attempts in the past, and they want this record to offer hope and strength to anyone who hears it. It is, by its very existence, a testament to what happens if you don’t let your demons win.
Cliffdiver is: Joey Duffy (vocals), Briana Wright (vocals), Matt Ehler (guitar/vocals), Gilbert Erickson (guitar/vocals), Tyler Rogers (bass), Dony Nickles (saxophone) and Eliot Cooper (drums)
