IMONOLITH (THREAT SIGNAL, Ex-STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) Parts Ways With Jed Simon
Imonolith, the band consisting of vocalist Jon Howard (Threat Signal, Arkaea), bassist-or-guitarist Brian Waddell (ex-The Devin Townsend Band, Devin Townsend Project), bassist Byron Stroud (ex-Strapping Young Lad, ex-Fear Factory), and drummer Ryan van Poederooyen (ex-The Devin Townsend Band, Devin Townsend Project) has parted ways with guitarist Jed Simon (ex-Strapping Young Lad, Zimmers Hole).
The band has replaced Simon with Kai Huppunen (ex-Methods Of Mayhem, ex-Noise Therapy), who they say has been writing and performing with them. Imonolith also says the lineup change occurred in October, so who knows exactly how much of a contribution he ended up making to the band's debut album.
"Imonolith would like to introduce and welcome a new guitar player to the band – Kai Huppunen – Kai “Music” (ex-Methods of Mayhem, ex-Noise Therapy).
Kai officially joined Imonolith this past October, just before shooting our debut video, ‘Hollow’. He is an incredible guitar player and an awesome performer. Kai has a unique writing style with great ideas that have already added to Imonolith’s sound. All of us in, Imonolith are very excited to have Kai as an official member of the band. Welcome Kai aboard!
Jed Simon and Imonolith have mutually parted ways. Jed is, and will always be a brother to us. We wish him all the very best with his future musical endeavours.
‘Hollow’, our debut single will be available world-wide for download and streaming on January 18th, 2019. A music video for ‘Hollow’ will be released the same day.
We’re excited to finally launch this band world-wide. Stay posted for more details to be released soon…”
Imonolith has yet to release any material, but will drop their debut single and music video "Hollow" on January 18. The song was produced by Brian Howes and Jason Van Poederooyen. Simon
