RETRODEMON is a four piece heavy rock band formed in 2005 by local Santa Barbara music scene veterans, singer/guitarist Giancarlo Mistretta (Creature Feature, Nogahyde), drummer Tyler Clark (Ultraspank, Nogahyde, Indica), guitarist Alastair Greene (Alan Parsons Live Project, Alastair Greene Band) and bassist Dan Ogden (Ultraspank, Indica, Kronix).

After the release of their debut CDDEMONSTRATION” in 2007 (and the subsequent departure of founding members Ogden and Greene in 2008) the band regrouped with bassist Eric Eskelson (Nogahyde, Backmask) and guitarist Joey Osso (Control-Me-Not). With their lineup finally solidified, the band has been gigging up and down the coast and working on new material.
