By way of his blog, Twitter account and various interviews, there has also been talk of a solo release from frontman Anthony Raneri. On December 4, 2009, at 12:00 am he released a demo version of "The Ballad of Bill the Saint" on his personal Myspace page, the first recorded song from his upcoming solo album. According to Raneri, the song was recorded one night in Chris Kirkpatrick's studio in his own home, after the two met at one of Raneri's solo shows in Orlando, Florida. On January 22, 2011 in an interview with Alternative Press, Raneri stated that he has no plans to release a solo album any time soon, as he only does his solo work for fun. However, as recently as August 20, 2011, Raneri stated at a solo show he was playing in Rhode Island, "I was thinking about maybe putting out a solo record next year," and also went on to say that he hadn't revealed to his record label of his intentions about putting out a solo album yet, but joked that they would know of his intentions after he would post a video of the show on the internet.

Raneri will begin recording his solo EP on December 13th in Los Angeles, CA. Steve Choi from RxBandits, Davey Warsop from Beat Union and Jarrod Alexander of My Chemical Romance will be sitting in as his backing band and collaborators on the recording.

On December 20, 2011, it was announced via Facebook that the solo EP would be named New Cathedrals and is scheduled for an early 2012 release.

On December 31, 2011 Anthony posted to his Facebook page that the EP would be released before the start of the "Where's the Band–" Tour which is scheduled to start on January 19 in Stroudsberg, PA.

On January 10, 2012, the first song from the EP, "Sandra Partial", was released for free streaming on Alternative Press. Also, via his Facebook page, Anthony released the artwork and tracklist of the EP.

On January 16, 2012, another song from the EP, entitled "Please Don't Leave", was released for free streaming on AbsolutePunk.

On January 16, 2012, the full EP was released on iTunes and within hours was on the top–ten list for best Alternative albums.
