Hello all! We are still alive and working on our 3rd album. It will be recorded in 2014, that is certain! We will keep you informed when there’s something more to inform you. Until then, have a great holiday season and see you in 2014!
-Jukka, Artturi & Henry
Today, 3rd of October, is the memorial day of Mikko Laine. A year has gone by quickly and Mikko is, and always will be, in our hearts and minds. Rest In Peace brother, you will not be forgotten!
On other subject. We’ve started demoing the new material. And might we say it KICKS MAJOR PHAT ASS! You can check out some photos of the “pre-production” sessions via our Facebook page SOLE REMEDY FACEBOOK

Almost 4 months ago we lost a dear friend and a wonderful bandmate. Things have been weird since that day and we had to take a time out. Some time ago we sat down, talked some things over and discussed if there is a future for Sole Remedy. This weekend (27th to 29th of January) Jukka, Artturi and Henry played their first rehearsal together as a trio.
Changes had to be made in order to continue. No one can fill the hole that Mikko’s passing away left. Also, it was mutually decided that Eetu Karioja would no longer be a member of Sole Remedy. The time isn’t right for him as the band needs more focus now than ever.
We would like to say a Big Thank You to Eetu for the journey we had together for a couple of years. We had some good times, some great times and one huge bad time. As of this moment, Sole Remedy continues as a trio: Jukka Salovaara on vocals & guitars, Artturi Sipilä on bass and Henry Silmonen on drums.
Still, no one knows what the future holds. Sole Remedy will definitely return on live-stages some day. But with what line-up? Now, that’s the question. For now, we will focus on composing and arranging the new music to perfection as a dynamic trio. Our first impression was positive as we rehearsed 5 new songs over this weekend. Let’s hope this will be an omen for things to come!

Our brother in arms, guitarist Mikko died in a terrible accident hours after the Progpower Europe 2011 show. Mikko was a vibrant, happy and funny person with lots to offer to the world. We had the best times with him and we’ll be remembering him with warmth and smiles on our faces, hope you do too!
If you have any pictures of Mikko you would like to share, from PPE or just along the way, please send them to contact ( at ) soleremedy (dot) net.
