All these shows will be a great opportunity to hear Solitary unleashing some brand new material from what will be their first all new studio album since 2008s acclaimed Requiem. The Preston thrashers have just finished work in the studio with renowned producer Simon Efemy – noted for his work with Napalm Death, Paradise Lost, Amorphis, Crowbar and many, many more – and early indications are that this next release will be the finest of Solitary’s twenty plus year career.
