No current projects are on the horizon for Set Your Goals and vocalist Matt Wilson will be taking advantage of the quiet time. The singer has announced that he created a new band named Chains to put out music that did not quite fit the sound of Set Your Goals.
“I am equal parts darkness and light and I have always had ideas that wouldn’t quite work for Set Your Goals; either the lyrics were too dark or parts were too aggressive,” admitted Wilson in a statement posted on YouTube.
“Chains is an outlet for that. Once Set Your Goals slowed down, I was able to put my ideas into motion. I grew up listening to extreme music and this projects is more in line with those tastes.”
As if the announcement wasn’t enough, Wilson has also released the group’s lead single, “Cages.”

Chains’ debut record, The Sorrow, The Sadness will reportedly be released in early 2015 through Wilson’s own record label, Calaveras Records.
