APR 6, 2021 — I (Tom) set up a Dem youtube channel years ago and forgot about it and now I’m finally using it and you should subscribe and watch the Reducer video hey.
OCT 27, 2020 — This video was released six years ago today. It’s the closest we’ve come to making a real music video. We had people help us and had props and drove to locations and sort of *acted*? What more could ya ask for. Thanks to Pete, Dana, and Campbell!
OCT 22, 2020 – Sad to hear Sierra Grille/Reanimate the Bay State is closing. It was one of the few venues in the area that booked The Dem and let us push volume at a small group of people. Many cool bands graced the-corner-that-was-not-a-stage. Many flyers photocopied. Many beers endrunkened. Many loud evenings captured with shaky, low-light video. Godspeed, et cetera.
OCT 14, 2020 – After enormous pressure from our most dedicated psycho mega fans, we’ve finally given in and released this 5-minute supercut of terrible rehearsal cover song outtakes. https://youtu.be/daLBMqawZv0
MAY 28, 2020 – Hey, Tom recorded a song for you.
You can purchase the track here:
APRIL 23 — Here is a song from our forthcoming album HIATUS. It’s a little ditty about the planet dying called Hole In The Sea.

MARCH 20 — Today (Friday 3/20) bandcamp is waiving their fees, meaning artists get 100% of sales. If you’ve been contemplating any albums from The Demographic, what a great day to download some mp3s. https://thedemographic.bandcamp.com/
I ( @tompappalardo ) also have two albums’ worth of 4-track/8-track stuff that is sorta fun.
MARCH 17— Here’s a taste of last St. Patrick’s Day, when we recorded basic tracks at @uncannyaudio with @marcseedorf on bass. I’d say the band is on hiatus right now but we’re always on hiatus, so fuck it. We’ve got a show booked in June and maybe it’ll happen. Everybody be well. #recording #easthampton #studio #roughmix #recordingstudio
