Metal Church - Guitarist To Release New Solo Album Next Year

Metal Church guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof recently announced that he will release a new solo album early next year, entitled Brainchild. In a recent interview with Sea Of Tranquility, Vanderhoof described the record, which was already completed two years ago, as "a personal challenge - just something I wanted to do. It's just '70s old-school guitar riff rock."

The guitarist explained: "One of the best albums in the world was Montrose's first record, so I was, like, 'I just wanna see if I can do this.' So I did everything - drums, everything, vocals, everything. Not 'cause I think I can, but just 'cause I wanted to do it - I wanted to try it. And it came out okay. I can listen to it, and I don't have to hit 'eject' right away. Musically, it's fine, but the whole vocal thing was just something I wanted to try to do. I spent years and years and years and years telling singers how to do it, like, 'Okay, that was flat. That was sharp. Do it again.' [I was] doing that [while] producing a record. So I'm, like, 'Well, why don't you just do it yourself?' It was a lot of fun."

In in the same interview, Vanderhoof revealed that he is "finishing up" the new solo album from Riot V singer Todd Michael Hall, which should also arrive in 2021.

As for Metal Church, the band have reportedly been working on a new album, which will be their first since 2018's Damned If You Do and is tentatively due for release next year.
