Chicago-based alternative metal ensemble Soil formed in 1997 around the talents of vocalist Ryan McCombs, drummer Tom Schofield, bass player Tim King, and guitarists Adam Zadel and Shaun Glass. They first released their debut EP, El Chupacabra!, in 1998, which first aired on Chicago’s Rebel Radio. This album was then followed by the full-length Throttle Junkies in 1999. Their sophomore release (Scars) found success both nationally and internationally through two strong singles, “Unreal” and “Halo.” It was followed in 2001 by an eponymous EP, and later in 2004 with re.de.fine. McCombs left the fold that year, eventually joining Drowning Pool. He was replaced by A.J. Cavalier on their 2006 debut for DRT, True Self. On October 20, 2009, the band released Picture Perfect, heralded by the single “Like It Is.” SOiL’s next full-length release was the 2012 concert album, Re-Live-ing the Scars: In London, recorded the previous year in London. Sixth studio album Whole appeared in 2013. (Source)
From the streets of Chicago, something is brewing. Chicago veteran musicians, brothers Mark and Matt Nawara, and Mike Gorman, along with Phoenix, Arizona’s, Andy Mitchell have formed The Outfit.
The Outfit brings you straight up rock and roll, with catchy hooks and an aggressive sound. The Nawara brothers played the Chicago club scene for years, along with writing and recording original music. Mike Gorman comes from two legendary Chicago bands, Pezband and Off Broadway. Rounding out the lineup is singer/songwriter and guitarist Andy Mitchell, whose past bands included Dish, Verona and 9 Volt.
The Outfit released their first self-titled album on February 2, 2018. It was engineered by Chicago music veteran Matt Mercado at Sonic Palace Studios in Oak Park, Illinois. Mixing was handled in Los Angeles by Grammy nominated, multi-platinum producer and mixer Ulrich Wild (Pantera, Static-x, White Zombie, Deftones, and Breaking Benjamin).
Currently, the lead single “Soldier Boy” is number 27 on the Billboard Rock Indicator Chart and has been receiving airplay all over Rock Radio stations. The album has also received praise among reviewers. Kelley Simms, writer for the Illinois Entertainer, raves, “The Outfit’s nine short and sweet tracks is the perfect recipe for a memorable melodic rock album.” The band recently filmed the music video for the next single, “Wire,” which will be released shortly.
