SOiL announce UK tour support for Skindred (2014)
Story by Jack Foley
CHICAGO based heavy rock band SOiL will hit the UK as direct support to reggae rockers Skindred in 2014.
This tour will be the first UK tour in support of SOiL’s sixth studio release Whole, available now through Pavement Entertainment and AFM Records.
Whole is the first album to feature original vocalist Ryan McCombs since 2004’s Re.De.Fine. A Russia and European tour will follow the UK dates.
“We are both excited and scared to tour the UK with Skindred,” states SOiL bassist Tim King. “Excited because Skindred are great friends of ours and it’s been long overdue to tour together again. Scared because Skindred are great friends of ours and we will definitely be in danger of having too much fun and getting in too much trouble together!” Nobody gets out alive!!!!!”
Skindred’s drummer Arya Goggin says: “We always pride ourselves on having great guests on our tours and we are really excited to have SOiL as our main special guests on our Kill the Power UK Tour especially with Ryan back in the line-up.
“They are great friends and absolutely slay it live so we cant wait to party with them. We are also extremely excited to have LA band Viza also join the tour and to bring some of their unique energetic gypsy punk metal madness to the proceedings which should make for a great evening.”
