First round of “The Diseased Heart Of Society” live dates completed


It’s been an amazing experience touring to support the new album, starting off in early March in Glasgow and culminating at The Hague in The Netherlands on Saturday 10th June, we also appeared at Hammerfest and Thrashersaurus as well as a support slot with Acid Reign in London.  We met loads of great people and gained more fans, we’re taking the summer off ready to hit the road again in the Autumn.

Pete Hewitt joins Solitary


We are really pleased to welcome Pete Hewitt into the band on Bass, Pete joined in late October after Dave’s departure due to health issues. Pete has plenty of experience as a result of being in his own band Winterfire who have played with Solitary a couple of times, he’ll add a lot to the band with his talents and song writing ability.

Worship Metal review Unidentified


We’ve had our first review of the new single “Unidentified” and long time supporter of all things Solitary Chris Jennings has classed it as the unholy step-sibling of the Solitary classics “Predator” and “Keep Your Enemies Closer” in his review at Worship Metal.

Proudly declaring “Unidentified” is full throttle thrash; written to rip throats, sever heads and shatter spines and equates to the most shit-kicking classic thrash from a UK band we’ve heard in an age.
