The Quarantine Sessions with IMONOLITH

Like many bands in the music industry IMONOLITH has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and were forced to cancel their European tour dates in March and April. That didn’t stop them though from releasing their highly anticipated debut album, State of Being, this past March. The album features special guest appearances from Jens Kidman (Meshuggah) and Swedish vocalist Johannes Eckerström and is centered around the theme of how people deal with various stages of life.


Although all members have been in isolation along with the rest of us, they're still in daily contact with each other. Even though they are separated across the globe from each other, the members of IMONOLITH have put together a special treat for fans entitled “The Quarantine Sessions.”

"It’s tough times for everyone world-wide with COVID-19. The music industry and bands world-wide have literally been shut down from touring, from doing press tours and anything to do with public appearances,” says Drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen. “The one thing COVID-19 has not disrupted is the Internet and Social Media. Many bands are getting creative and doing live stream concerts and more….”

So what exactly are the ‘Quarantine Sessions?’
They are videos released on the IMONOLITH YouTube page, each Monday at 8 a.m. PST, of the full band playing through a song on their debut album, releasing a new song every Monday until they have finished all 10 songs on their album. Then on every Tuesday, at 9 a.m. PST they will be doing a 'Quarantine Session Live Feed' on their Instagram page to talk about the song they released on Monday. How awesome is that?! The band plans on going into many behind-the-scenes details about each song released and do a live Q&A too.

So tune in every Monday for new videos as well as Tuesdays for some live feed discussion!
