Lone Kodiak Release Ferocious New Single, “Inner Monologue,” Exclusively Premiered On Bravewords
The East LA Group Announces Upcoming Album ‘If We Have A Future’ for Early 2024
[LOS ANGELES, November 17, 2023] — East LA’s electrifying quartet, Lone Kodiak, erupts onto the music scene with their explosive new single, “Inner Monologue,” premiering exclusively on Bravewords. This groundbreaking release is a bold manifesto of artistic authenticity, capturing the hearts of audiences and charting the band’s raw, impassioned journey to self-discovery. Defying the norm, Lone Kodiak rebels against the pressure to conform to transient market trends and algorithmic dictates.
Accompanying this momentous release is the exhilarating announcement of their upcoming album, If We Have A Future, set to shake up the musical landscape in early 2024. This album, poised to be the crowning achievement of Lone Kodiak, encapsulates the band’s unwavering dedication to authenticity and dynamic creativity. Meticulously sculpted since their pre-pandemic breakthrough, If We Have A Future promises to be a masterful convergence of raw emotion, artistic integrity, and groundbreaking sound, heralding a new era for the band and for music aficionados everywhere.
Building on this anticipation, “Inner Monologue” is the latest glimpse into the depth and intensity that If We Have A Future promises. This single stands as a potent defiance against the insidious self-doubt that pervades the artistic and personal realms, setting the tone for what is to come in this groundbreaking album. This track forges a narrative steeped in unfiltered honesty, breaking away from the allure of mainstream appeal to embrace raw, unadulterated truth. It navigates a deeply introspective journey, confronting and dismantling the internal critic. This process transforms a candid acknowledgment of inner struggles into a powerful declaration of identity, shunning the spiral of internalized shame and transcending traditional songwriting conventions that prioritize appeal over authenticity.
Of course, these themes are nothing without the sheer auditory magnitude and sonic force the band has at their disposal. In discovering what they truly like and love and want to make, the result is a sound that is undeniably theirs – unendingly tragic, unerringly unapologetic, and most importantly, utterly real. It’s the sound of a band that has stopped marching to the beat of anyone else’s drum and started embracing the rhythm of their own hearts. They’ve turned their backs on the notion of ‘appeal’.
The result is a body of work that doesn’t just echo in the ears but reverberates in the bones. It’s a clarion call to all those who have ever felt the need to mute their uniqueness in a world that often favors the generic. With such a dangerous move, of being authentic in the age of attention and algorithm, the band doesn’t want to step into the limelight; they want to set the stage ablaze with the fire of their genuine spirit, inviting listeners to join them in celebrating the beauty of unadulterated self-expression.
“Inner Monologue” is not just a standalone triumph but the latest crescendo in Lone Kodiak’s symphony of hits that have been resonating across the media landscape. From the seismic impact of “The Corner Booth” (feat. Chase Petra) to the soul-stirring “Let’s Hear it for The Kid,” and the electrifying reinterpretation in “Make It A Weapon (Catastrophzr Version),” each release has been a testament to the band’s evolving artistry and growing acclaim.
October’s “Werewolf Girl!” further solidified their place in the alternative rock pantheon. Premiering on Vents Magazine, this track intricately wove light and shadow, using its vibrant narrative to delve into profound themes, perfectly capturing Lone Kodiak’s signature blend of emotive storytelling and atmospheric melodies.
Now, all eyes are on the horizon as Lone Kodiak prepares to unveil their debut full-length album, If We Have A Future, slated for release in 2024. Expected to be a raw, unfiltered odyssey through their musical evolution, If We Have A Future is shaping up to be more than just an album – it’s a bold declaration of their creative rebellion. This record is set to carve a new path in the alternative rock landscape, serving as a relentless testament to artistic metamorphosis and a defiant challenge to industry status quos.

About Lone Kodiak
There’s something singular about Lone Kodiak.
Founded by Portland natives Dainéal Parker (vocals, guitars) and Daniel Alden (bass), the group found revelation with the inclusion of their drummer, Josh Harris. Drawing inspiration and comparisons alike from iconic bands like The Cure, Hum, The Smashing Pumpkins, Explosions In The Sky, Young Widows, and Deftones, the group embarked on a creative journey during the pandemic, molding a distinct sonic identity that has marked them out as the next new act to watch.
Whether trying to nail down their sound or find another group as hardworking as them, the band stands alone as their namesake would against a barren backdrop. And, of course, the East LA outfit doesn’t fit in with the pomp and bluster of the Hollywood rock scene, unconcerned as they are with clout, glory, or grandeur.
The quartet (with guitarist Ben Palmer squaring the circle) combines the grit of East LA with the sublime wildness of the Pacific Northwest – a group that is at once solitary, capable, dangerous, and self-assured.
