After a hiatus that lasted more than two years, Tim Holland, a.k.a. Sole, returned to the public eye this past October with the anticon. release Sole and the Skyrider Band. And despite what Holland’s numerous solo endeavors (not to mention, his moniker) might lead you to believe, the Skyrider band actually exists. You can see this for yourself in early 2008, when the whole gang leaves its Flagstaff, AZ homebase to traverse the many cities of North America with its apocalyptic-flavored leftfield hip-hop.

In the meantime, Sole and company are releasing a video for the track “Stupid Things Implode on Themselves.” See America rendered to a state feudal dystopia at our videos section!
