Formed in 1997, Chicago Heavy Rock band SOiL quickly took the scene by storm. The band has sold over 2 million albums worldwide and is best known for the hit singles "Halo", "Unreal", "Redefine", "The Lesser Man", and "Shine On".With the song "Halo" gaining major radio attention, a major label bidding war broke out in an attempt to sign SOiL. The band would ultimately sign to J Records (BMG) by music industry legend Clive Davis. Clive, responsible for signing such acts as Pink Floydand Aerosmith, stated that "you're gonna be my only rock band for now. You're going to be a priority, and I want to break this band."SOiL experienced mainstream success with the major labeldebut "Scars"which was released in September 2001.This achievement was aided by the popular singles "Halo" and "Unreal" which gained the band exposure on MTV. The success resulted in the band winning Metal Edgemagazine's 2001 Readers' Choice Award for "Next Big Thing". The band consistently toured in support of top name acts such as Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie which propelled the group into arena sized venues and crowds.In 2004, the band released their second major label album "re.de.fine". The group toured for a year straight in support of the album and returned home to begin writing follow up material and finish various live dates.The band released their next two albums "True Self" (2006) and "Picture Perfect" (2009)and proved that they were a mainstay in the Hard Rock world with non stop touring and by spawning yet another top charting hit single with "The Lesser Man" in 2010.SOiL released its sixth studio album, entitled "Whole", on August 20, 2013. The album was a "Return to form" for the band and has been hailed by fans and critics alike as the album that could have come directly after the "Scars" album.Some featured songs from "WHOLE" include the top 40 charting singles "Shine On" and "The Hate Song". Both meeting with strong rotation and charting at the Active Rock format.After celebrating their 20th anniversary in January of 2017, SOiL entered intothe studio to record new material to be included on “SCREAM: The essentials”, a Greatest Hits collection featuring the songs that solidified SOiL as Hard Rock mainstays, as well as, alternate versions of popular tracks and unreleased material. The new studio track "Gimme Some Lovin" is a cover song originally featured in the 1980 smash hit cult classic movie "The Blues Brothers". "We felt it was a perfect song to add the album" states bassist
Tim King. "It tied in our Chicago roots and the 20th anniversary of the band perfectly".Other tracks included on "SCREAM..." include an acoustic version of "Can YouHeal Me" recorded at Dimebag Darrell's home studio and produced by Vinnie Paul. Also included is a special version of "Give It Up" featuring the late Wayne Static of Static-X contributing verse, chorus, and bridge vocal lines throughout the song, and a cover of Soundgarden’s classic “Rusty Cage”.SOiL continue to tour worldwide and stay active in the music industry.
