NYVES (pronounced Knives) is the electronic project by Ryan Clark, the vocalist in Demon Hunter, and Randy Torres, formerly of Project 86. It was launched as a Kickstarter side project where they asked for $50,000 in order to fund their debut full-length album, ‘Anxiety’. It was to be a massive success with 2,104 backers pledging $82,702 to help bring this project to life.
Ryan Clark stated “As a designer, having created the aesthetic surrounding Demon Hunter, as well as dozens of other bands, I’ve always been enthralled with the visual identity behind a music project. With NYVES, I want to create a visual language that transcends the average. As a collector myself, with an appreciation for fully-realized artistic expression, I would love the opportunity to bring NYVES to life with a bang — offering multiple physical formats of the record itself, as well as shirts, posters, and other items that further expand the world of NYVES.”
