Monolord Vocalist Releases Solo Track, “A Solitary Plan”
Monolord vocalist Thomas V. Jäger has released “A Solitary Plan,” the first single from his upcoming solo album of the same name.
The album offers a much more stripped down approach compared to the overwhelming fuzz of Monolord. “I could’ve rearranged [the songs] to get a Monolord vibe, but I wanted the basis of just voice, guitar and synths, really laid back and mellow,” Jäger says. He adds:
“This album is me venting all of this emotional energy I’ve been carrying around. Now I’m feeling more open about it, but at the start I had a hard time talking with friends and family. The record is what came out instead of talking about it.”
The central lyrical theme to the album is Jäger coming to terms with the likelihood he’ll never become a parent after wanting to have a family for a long time.
A Solitary Plan will come out on May 8 and is available for pre-order here.
