Demonic Sweaters is the musical project of me, Justin Wierbonski. I started out back in the post-hardcore days as the drummer for the influential bands “Lincoln” and Kukim. I later played in a DC bands such as The Boom, and Canyon. As well as NYC Indie Rockers, Echoscape, and FRAME. Demonic Sweaters originally was a solo recording project, but as time went on, it evolved into a creative brand with full length albums on physical and digital media, a YouTube Channel with over 25,000 subscribers, and an active online presence and fanbase.
After the 2020 Lockdowns, the time had come for me to start playing live again, but I didn’t want to do it alone, so I started putting together a band to support the live shows, and Thee Demonic Sweaters was born.
To avoid going off on a pretentious tangent on what we sound like, just listen. Simply put, it’s experimental rock.
Currently the live lineup is a trio consisting of myself on drums and vocals, Jon Michelson on guitar, and Ronan Conroy on bass.
