SOLITARY have signed a new deal with German label Metalville Records. Metalville Records was founded in 2008 by Chris Boltendahl of Grave Digger and former Nuclear Blast A&R man Holger Koch and has gone from strength to strength over the last twelve years – picking up gold and silver discs for their artists, along with Metal Hammer award nominations and chart placings in Sweden, Japan, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, France, the UK and USA. Now established as a major player in the rock and metal market, Metalville is home to internationally successful artists like Ugly Kid Joe, Lee Aaron, Foghat, Dog Eat Dog and many more.
SOLITARY have repaid the faith of Metalville by delivering a new album that is far and away the strongest of their twenty five year career. The Truth Behind The Lies will not only satisfy the band’s dedicated hardcore following, but capture the hearts of a whole new legion of fans. Along with renowned producer Simon Efemey (Amorphis, Napalm Death, Paradise Lost etc) SOLITARY have worked incredibly hard to produce an album packed with absolute thrash classics, with a sound that is second to none. All packaged in some stunning artwork from the legendary Koot (Girlschool, Saxon, The Almighty etc), who also created the cover for SOLITARY’s limited edition anniversary EP, XXV, this is the perfect way to begin this exciting new chapter in the Solitary story.
Speaking about the new deal SOLITARY’s frontman Rich Sherrington said:
“Given the current global uncertainty it’s an amazing feeling to be starting the next chapter in the SOLITARY journey. Securing a record label in the metal stronghold that is Germany is a big enough deal, but then when we factor in the stature of Metalville it’s is a dream come true. UK Thrash is the strongest it’s been since the late eighties. It’s great to be putting out a brand new album in the midst of this.”
It’s been a hell of a ride from the pubs and clubs of the north of England to the stage of the Bloodstock Festival, where Solitary triumphed in 2019 and the roster of Metalville Records. Despite all the setbacks along the way SOLITARY have simply refused to give up. The pledge they made when this band began still holds true…they still promise to thrash forever.
