Canadian COAL CHAMBER bassist Chela Rhea Harper (SARASVATI) announced the launch of a new project, VII, at the beginning of the year:
"This is something I have been working towards for a very long time and with the help of the very talented Joe Waller (ADORA VIVOS) and Arsafes (KARTIKEYA). This project will soon be on its way. It's best described as melodic doom with progressive and ethnic influences."
Harper has checked in with a new update:
"Sometime in the next couple of days... at a secret time... VII's first single will be released. Keep checking for updates! We are very much looking forward to sharing it with you."

In August 2012, Harper issued the following update on her solo work under the name Sarasvati:
"Ok, I finally uploaded the Sarasvati EP to Bandcamp. You can stream it for free or download it for $4 (or $1 per song). There is a bonus track included when you purchase the whole EP. People have been telling me to do this for so long, once all the free downloads were used up on Soundcloud I decided to give it a try. I released this four years ago, but this is the first time I've decided to sell it. Saving up for a new preamp :D. I'm working on a bunch of new stuff, so I'll keep you updated!"
