Rob Arnold played guitar in Chimaira from its inception in 1998 up to 2011, while drummer Andols Herrick played in the group from 1998 to 2003 and again from 2006 to 2010. Arnold and Herrick began working on Arnold's solo album way back in 2013 and even recorded the drums for the effort, but it was never completed. Now according to Arnold, he's finally finishing that project and is planning on releasing it either sometime this or next year.
Here's what Arnold says about the project in an interview with Level3Studios Podcast.
“I’m gonna be putting out a solo record that I’m going to get back to work on in a little bit here. All the songs are written. Andols has already recorded his parts—a lot of people have heard about this—we did it back in 2013.
I just haven’t had a chance to work on it due to other commitments and how busy I’ve been with things. But that’s my next project that I’m going to get into after the release of The Elite.
I’m going to start mixing this record that Andols and I did.”
