Solamors began in 2012 as the brainchild of Alex Kenis (prev. Becoming the Archetype, Aletheian), who soon recruited former bandmates Jason Wisdom (prev. Becoming the Archetype) and Travis Turner (prev. Aletheian, Crutch). In january, the ball got rolling on what would become an epic experiment in DIY-grassroots music production, crowd-sourced funding, and self/fan-sourced promotion, with every step in the process being open, honest, laid-bare and documented to give the fans a special connection with the trials, triumphs, frustrations and victories that the band experiences every step of the way.
