With “Demons Are Scared” we are thrilled to present the first solo album by Arne Heesch (Ex-Ulme, Treedeon), featuring Yvonne Ducksworth (Ex-Jingo de Lunch, Treedeon) on most of the songs.
History as they say unfolds in unexpected and sometimes mysterious ways, and it was no different for this album since most of the tracks on “Demons Are Scared” can be considered the founding basis for what later became Treedeon. After the almost simultaneous demise of Ulme, and the 2nd spring of seminal Crossover punk/metal icons Jingo de Lunch, Arne and Yvonne started as an acoustic solo set on the 2012 (and final) edition of the SOUTH OF MAINSTREAM FESTIVAL. Ulme had originally been booked, but unfortunately disbanded right before the festival. The songs had been written shortly before by Arne, under the influence of Ulme’s breakup, inspired by the silence and reorientation as well as by the struggle with inner demons. Arne by that time was living a quiet life in a rural landscape in Northern Germany, but headed for Berlin, to move in with his new partner Yvonne. The dichotomy between pain resulting from ending a chapter in his life, and the hope for a new beginning, shaped the tracks in a constant flow between melancholic and hopeful approaches. With all this inspiration the songs kind of created themselves as Arne puts it today.
Shortly after the apperance on the South Of Mainstream Festival, a 2nd gig was booked at Berlin’s Schokoladen and as much as these two shows did augur what now, almost 10 years later materializes itself as an album, life navigated the two to different shores: away from the introspective emotionality towards the loud but no less cathartic noise of Treedeon.
The time simply wasn’t right yet. But it is now.
“Demons Are Scared” is a fully homegrown album, recorded by Ulf ‘Fluffi’ Reinhard mostly in Arne’s living room. Yvonne Ducksworth’s vocals are featured on most of the songs, as well as some additional guitar and keyboard work by Fluffi. The album was mastered by Exile-On-Mainstream-alumni Stefan Brueggemann. In August 2021, Arne and Yvonne presented the album for the first time; in a stunning performance on Ruegen Island. The open air concert by the sea at the very North of Germany, was part of the inspirational Heumond Festival, alongside performances by MIGHT, and Conny Ochs, the latter, who also drew the lettering for the album cover of “Demons Are Scared”.
The album is limited to 300 copies and is released as vinyl-only with a CD containing all tracks thrown in.
