Colorado Springs-based outlaw alt-folk group Tejon Street Corner Thieves (TSCT) have released a brand new video for the fan-favorite track "Demons" online. The song appears on the group's new album Thick As Thieves, and confronts the skeletons in the closet head-on with a haunting sing-along chorus. TSCT are currently on the road supporting The Dead South and Lucero across the United States.

“‘Demons’ is about battling addiction,” said singer and banjo player Connor O’Neal. “The literal demons in the song are representative of drugs and drinking. Those demons will eventually catch up to you if you don’t fight them.”

Tejon Street Corner Thieves new album Thick As Thieves was recorded at Royal Recordings in Colorado Springs with producer Bill Douglas (Veruca Salt, Smashing Pumpkins) and put out via Liars Club, the new label formed by Amigo the Devil and indie powerhouse Regime Music Group. Thick As Thieves mixes together a unique blend of Americana, folk, and bluegrass, defying categorization into one single genre.  There’s a newfound level of depth, complexity, and authenticity that elevates the record to a new sonic spectrum for the band.

TSCT enlisted Olafh Acevedo to illustrate the cover art: a holy angel and a fallen demon enjoying the riches of a heist.  To further accentuate the music, fans who purchase physical copies of the record will also receive an original TSCT comic book to accompany the album; a nail-biting tale of how TSCT escaped disaster after their bus broke down in the desert.
