All-star quintet IMONOLITH release new single; announce debut album and UK/EU headline tour

State of Being released 27th March; guest features include Jens Kidman (Meshuggah)

Canadian all-star metal powerhouse IMONOLITH have announced the release of their highly anticipated debut album State Of Being on 27th March via Imonolith Music and are streaming new single / video ‘Instinct’.

State Of Being is now available to pre-order / pre-save here: https://lnk.to/stateofbeing

Featuring drummer Ryan ‘RVP’ Van Poederooyen (Devin Townsend Project), guitarist Brian ‘Beav’ Wadell (Devin Townsend Project), Jon Howard (Threat Signal),  guitarist Kai Huppunen (Methods of Mayhem, Noise Therapy) and Scott Whalen (Econoline Crush), IMONOLITH is a collective of heavy hitting players at the top of their game, and ‘Instinct’ serves as a great taster of what can be expected on their debut album.

State of Being features 10 hook-laden riff-heavy tracks including ‘Hollow’, the debut single that made big waves for IMONOLITH straight out of the gate, racking up 216K Spotify streams in 2019. There are also two very special guest performances from Jens Kidman (Meshuggah) and Swedish vocalist Johannes Eckerström

Having spent much of 2019 writing, arranging, recording and fine-tuning State of Being, the band worked incredibly hard to achieve their goal – to make an engaging heavy metal album. RVP commented “We spent a lot of time making this record. We wanted it to be done the way we envisioned it. We didn’t cut any corners, from the song writing right up to the album production and artwork. It’s a debut album that we’re very proud of and excited for the world to hear.”

The high production video to ‘Instinct’ is not only a great example of the band’s quality aesthetic, but it also serves as a look at IMONOLITH’s collective personality. RVP continues “I think we raised the bar with the ‘Instinct’ video. It’s a different kind of video that’ll catch you off guard in a few ways. It can also be interpreted differently depending on the viewer. We put a lot of thought into it and hired great visionary people to make it a fun watch.’’

IMONOLITH will be touring globally for the next two years and have announced their first ever UK / EU headline dates, commencing on 27th March in Sheffield UK. Beav commented: “To be able to take a brand-new band overseas and have the opportunity to headline shows is completely mind blowing!! And we plan on making every show count, this is a dream situation for us.”
