Last year, we here at Metal Injection fell in love with solo artist Solitary Son, or as his mother calls him… Bronson Ellery. We called his video the best worst thing you'd see that day (or any day really). But after his meteoric rise to fame, we didn't really hear from Solitary Son since. Now we know why! The dude was in jail on charges of "wilful damage, attempting to pervert the cause of justice, and two counts of breaching bail" over threatening some dude.
Noisey caught up with Solitary Son who revealed he has a whole album of bangerz ready to go:
I wrote about nine new songs in there, and I’ve been recording them since I’ve been out, about three days a week at Sunnyside Studios in Worongary. I’ll be releasing an album calledSearching Souls in April with 11 tracks on it. It’s a lot better and heavier than my previous stuff. I was going that crazy in jail, doing my head in that bad in there. I had nothing to do but write cool songs. I wrote all the lyrics and the song ideas. I’ve just actually released a new trailer for my album.
He thinks he's destined for fame:
100%. I’ve been laying in front of fucking stereos since I was two years old, drumming on pots and pans at three, got my first drum kit when I was five, started guitar when I was seven.
As for why so many tattoos, he addresses that as well…
Yeah. I knew I was never going to do a normal job or anything, because I knew I was going to be fully dedicated to music. I was going make it hard for myself and just cover myself in tattoos so there was no other option. I just didn’t care. I knew I was doing music, so it didn’t matter what I looked like, and appearing like this would also help for the genre of music it is now. It makes a statement.
There's also a new music video and it's amazing:
