SOiL to Release Greatest Hits Album, Tour Dates

SOIL "Scream: The Essentials" album cover

Chicago Heavy Rock outfit SOiL will release Scream: The Essentials on September 15, 2017, via Pavement Entertainment and AFM Records. Celebrating the band’s 20-year career, this release will feature tracks from their humble beginnings, rise to fame, and also include alternate versions and mixes.

The track “Gimme Some Lovin’” originally made its on screen debut in the cult classic motion picture The Blues Brothers in 1980. Being primarily a Rhythm and Blues-based song, SOiL took it upon themselves to add their own personal touch and bring the song into a modern 2017 Hard Rock element.



Other songs exclusive to this release include an acoustic version of the song “Can You Heal Me” (recorded at Dimebag Darrell’s home studio in 2004 with Vinnie Paul producing), a version of the song “Give It Up” that features the late Wayne Static from Static X singing verses, choruses, and a bridge section, and a cover of the classic Soundgarden song “Rusty Cage.”
