In early 2018, Bear Grillz began work on Demons. He looked to his SoCal roots to create a dubstep album painted with hints of hip hop and reggae. Thematically, Bear Grillz was inspired by the ongoing global suicide epidemic and own mental health struggles. In a recent interview with Westword, he explained, "...It was time for us as a society to really start talking about mental health and putting it out there to make people aware. So I wanted to sort of use my experience with these inner demons, which is why I came up with the title Demons, to show people that we're all facing this no matter who you are as a person. Everybody has problems, and unless we talk about these problems openly and actively, I don't feel that we're going to be able to help each other."
Since March, Bear Grillz has been on the Demons Tour, playing the new material for fans across North America. Following recent performances at Ubbi Dubbi Festival and a surprise halftime show at a Denver Nuggets playoff game, Bear Grillz wraps the tour this Saturday with a big hometown show. This weekend he co-headlines Global Dub Festival at legendary Colorado venue Red Rocks alongside Adventure Club.
