"Hey pa, Demoted made the papers!"

Press for Shit for Brains:

"A tasteful mix of early and later-period hardcore tunes, everything from high powered sleaze-punk jams to sludged out droners are packed into this 9 song mini-LP, and it is not to be ignored... filled to the brim with dark infectious riffs accompanied by devilish shrieks." —CJ Robison, Strange Reverb

"Nice classic 'murrica hc album, beautiful because it's raw." ("Bel disco classic ‘murrica hc, bello perchè grezzo.")—Junk, InYourEyes

"The garage rock solo and analog feel makes this feel like I'm back at a Sunday afternoon Hardcore matinee in NYC. For you punk hardcore fans the nostalgia of this one will make you right at home."—Blood Makes Noise

"Brooklyn’s Demoted has a rough and immediate DIY sound. Simple, but carefully composed."—Maximum Rocknroll

"Keeping the old school hardcore sound alive."—Paul Silver, Keep Track of the Time

"Snotty punk that sounds like it could have come off the Killed By Death Hardcore comps."—Razorblades & Aspirin

"Un ottimo disco hardcore punk con degli ottimi pezzi, impregnato di una potenza grezza difficile da trovare oggi, al punto che sembra catapultato nel 2024 da un’altra epoca....I pezzi sono abbastanza vari e non disdegnano qualche rallentamento e cambio di tempo di blackflagghiana memoria, cosa che apprezzo molto."
(“An excellent hardcore punk record with some great songs, imbued with a raw power that is difficult to find today, to the point that it seems catapulted into 2024 from another era....The pieces are quite varied and unafraid of slowdowns and tempo changes reminiscent of Black Flag, which I really appreciate.")—Marco Borgatti, In Your Eyes Zine (Italy)

"Really cool that a band like this exists in 2024. This band from Brooklyn, NY could have easily been playing shows in the 80's with L.A. bands like Modern Warfare, Secret Hate & Rhino 39. Skewed as fukk Punk Rock with completely angular & twisted guitar lines."—The Switchblade New Wave

"Punk to the bone. Really fast, short and angry. In the mix of hardcore and punk that will remind you of Minor Threat. This is true DIY... Fast riffs and guitar distortion and adrenaline, good to listen to your gym sessions."—mptyzine (Constanta, Romania)

"Hardcore fury, Demoted impress us very favorably."—Ducalic Rock, Radio Eustachio (Italy)

"These folks are bloody great! Such a great overall sound and vibe, bet the live shows are a fucking blast!"—DebeshYou'veHeard

"Hits you like a punch to the gut, drawing clear inspiration from the likes of Minor Threat. With lightning-fast riffs, loads of guitar distortion, and abrupt changes that’ll have you catching your breath one moment and then diving headfirst into a wave of adrenaline... Unmistakable New York grit, honed in basement shows and dive bars, that permeates every riff and lyric. “Demoted” isn’t holding anything back—they’re throwing themselves into the fray with all the ferocity of a Brooklyn street brawl."—Punk Rock Mag (Costa Rica)

"Shit, after listening to this new album I have to listen to the band's other stuff too. Here you'll get raw, raucous old school hardcore like Minor Threat! I'll tear the place apart for something like this! Fuzzy guitars, driving drums, raw anger and lots of power! I like it!" ("Scheiße, nachdem ich dieses neue Album gehört habe, muss ich mir auch noch das andere Zeugs der Band reinpfeifen. Hier gibt’s rohen, räudigen oldschool-Hardcore der Marke Minor Threat auf die Ohren! Ich zerleg die Bude für sowas! Fuzzy Gitarren, nach vorne treibendes Schlagzeug, rohe Wut und jede Menge Power! Ich steh drauf!") Steff / Crossed Letters punk zine (Germany)

"Raw punk rock, sometimes more garage and other times more punk. Our favorite cut is the one that bears the name of the band, 'Demoted.'" ("Nueve temas de crudo punk rock, que a ratos nos parece más garagero y otras más punk. Nuestro corte favorito es para el que lleva el nombre de la banda, 'Demoted.'")Rock Attitude Facezine (Spain)
