The song labeled "Demon" on the May 9th New Orleans
CNN show has been confirmed as one of the tunes recorded
during the band's rehearsal sessions in Austin earlier this
year. Although rumors circulated briefly that it might be the
return of a song known as "Monster", sources
indicate that it is indeed brand-new.
