Track Of The Day: Soil
Regarded as one of the brightest rock hopes during the early part of this decade, Soil are now back with a strong album and renewed confidence. So, as they tour the UK with Shinedown, it’s seems fitting that they provide the Track Of The Day.
The band started in Chicago in 1997. Two EPs – Soil (1997) and El Chupacabra! (1998) – were followed in 1999 by debt album Throttle Junkies, recorded by Steve Albini. A deal with J Records led to the release of breakthrough album Scars in 2001, propelled by party anthem Halo – one of the biggest songs of that era. The follow-up, Redefine (2004), didn’t quite have the charin legs of its predecessor, but the quality was still high.
Signing to DRT Entertainment, the band released the album True Self in 2006, erupting with a harder edge than before, which suited the mindset at the time. Now the band are back with Picture Perfect, their first since signing to Driven Records in the US (run by former Korn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch) and AFM in the UK/Europe.
Produced by Johnny K, it showcases the fact that vocalist A.J. Cavalier, guitarist Adam Zadel, bassist Tim King and drummer Tom Schofield are ready to make their mark once more.
