Tim King is the bass player and one of the founding members of the rock band Soil. King and Soil recorded their breakthrough album 2001’s Scars, which was met with great commercial reception. After 2004’s Redefine album, the band has released two more albums and King has managed to help keep Soil alive despite various lineup changes and departures from previous band members.

‘Whole’ will be released on August 19th in the UK and is available for pre-order now.

SOiL’s sixth studio album “WHOLE” will be released worldwide in August 2013 via AFM Records (worldwide) and Pavement Entertainment (North America). The album also sees the band going 100% independent with the release. “We wanted to call all the shots on this album and for the first time ever hold our future in our own hands” says bassist Tim King. This will mark the first album with original frontman Ryan McCombs since 2004’s “re.de.fine”. The new album sees SOiL returning to its classic sound that both fans and critics alike have come to admire. The band hails the new album as “An album that could have come directly after the “Scars” album”. Some featured songs from “WHOLE” include “The Hate Song”, “Loaded Gun”, “Way Gone”, and “Shine On” which is dedicated to the SOiL fans for standing by the band throughout the years. Another track titled “Amalgamation” sees Ryan taking song titles from both the SOiL and Drowning Pool releases he was a part of and weaving them into verses of the song.

Ryan McCombs’s take on the lyrical process on “Whole”: I think lyrically speaking, those that are familiar with the work I’ve done are going to get the next chapter that they would expect. Words from a heart and mind that has lived them. One of the greatest things I experience as a lyricist is when people come up and share with me how a song, or a specific verse or line from a song, got them through a hard time or times in their lives. It reminds me of the times music did that for me an how powerful music and/or a lyric can be in a person’s life.

Drums and percussion on “WHOLE” were performed by Will Hunt who is best known for his work with Black Label Society, Evanescence, and Device. “Will added a whole new dimension to the songs” states bassist Tim King. “He added a monstrous and aggressive vibe to the album”.

A guest solo on the song “Wake Up” was also performed by long time friend Mike Mushok of the band Staind.

“The new album is a decisive step forward for SOiL” according to producer Ulrich Wild. “Back to their roots, of sorts, they are leaner, meaner and more mature. I’m thrilled to have been a part of it!”

SOiL “Whole” coming to you this August, 2013…….
