Chicago heavy rockers SOiL will embark on a third leg of touring for their newest album "Whole". This trek takes them across the UK and Europe during May/June in support of the recently reunited Coal Chamber. It also brings them back through the United States in June/July alongside Powerman 5000.
SOiL premiered the brand new video for Shine On, the first single from their forthcoming sixth studio album, WHOLE, on Loudwire.com yesterday. The song is currently gaining airplay on radio stations nationwide and will be available digitally July 2. The full album will be released August 20.
WHOLE is the first album with original frontman Ryan McCombs since 2004's RE.DE.FINE (after which he became Drowning Pools lead singer). It sees SOiL returning to the classic sound that fans have come to admire, calling it the album "that could have come directly after the SCARS album in 2001.
New Noise magazine recently called the album (in a 5-out-of-5 star review): ...dirty hard rock influenced alternative metal thats got more piss and vinegar going for it than anything Ive heard on the radio these days...To hear something like this is just fucking refreshing in all honesty; and its the best thing Ive heard from alternative heavy metal in years.
