Imonolith, featuring current and former members of Threat Signal, Strapping Young Lad and The Devin Townsend Project, preview a demo version of their new track “Dig“. The group began tracking their debut release earlier this year with more details still to be announced.

Comments the band:

“Hey everyone,

We’re working hard on our music and the process of getting it out to you as soon as possible.

This is a song (Demo Version) called ‘Dig‘. It’s a song about shit talkers and the importance of ignoring them. The message of the lyrics are to do what you think is best for you, do what you love with your life and leave the negative people behind. What they think is none of your business anyways 😉

Stay posted for more news soon….”
