SOiL LAUNCHES KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN AS WORK BEGINS ON NEW ALBUM

| 8 November 2012 | Reply

Chicago’s SOiL has launched an interactive pre-sale campaign on Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/soil/soil) to enable fans to participate in the release of their forthcoming album.  Fans will receive exclusive shirts, a chance to have dinner with the band, autographed merchandise, attend studio sessions,an exclusive new mp3 download of the first studio song with Ryan since the “re.de.fine” album and more. They also will be the first to receive the new album when it’s released.

SOiL’s lead singer Ryan McCombs says, “This Kickstarter project is allowing us to offer unique opportunities to our fans, who are the people who allow us to do what we do.  It also allows us as a band to keep control over every aspect of the forthcoming SOiL album.”

SOiL is an American rock band that formed in Chicago, Illinois in 1997.  After some independent releases, the band was the first rock group signed to J Records and achieved mainstream success with their 2001 major label debut, SCARS, with the hit single, “Halo.”  This success was followed by the second J Records album, RE.DE.FINE, which was released in 2004. The band released two more independent albums (TRUE SELF and PICTURE PICTURE) in 2006 and 2009 respectively.

In the Fall of 2011, SOiL embarked on a sold-out U.K. tour commemorating the 10th anniversary of their landmark album, SCARS. The band has since began writing a new album and planning a full promotion campaign. With the state of the music business, the band decided to record and promote the album solely on their own with the help of their diehard fans.

Kickstarter is the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects.
