Soil Return to the Studio With Singer Ryan McCombs for Next Album
SOiL's reunion with onetime frontman Ryan McCombs continues to go quite well. The vocalist initially took leave from Drowning Pool in 2011 to join his former band on tour in support of the tenth anniversary of their 'Scars' album and not long after McCombs made his departure from Drowning Pool permanent. Now back with SOiL full time, the singer and his bandmates are ready to work on a new disc.
The group will enter the studio later this month to begin recording their sixth studio album with producer Ulrich Wild, who had previously worked with the band on their 2006 album 'True Self' and co-produced the band's most recent album, 2009's 'Picture Perfect.'
Bassist Tim King says, "We are very eager and excited to be back in the studio again. This new album has a very classic SOiL feel to it." This marks the band's first disc with McCombs since their 2004 effort, 'Re.De.Fine.'
The still-untitled album will be the band's first release completed 100 percent independently. "We will be calling all the shots on this one," says King. "Every decision will be made by myself, Adam and Ryan." The disc will be distributed through Sony RED / MRI via Pavement Entertainment.
