Bassist Tim King of Chicago heavy rockers SOIL has confirmed to Meltdown of the WRIF radio station that the band is working on new music, to be released later this year."We're definitely gonna have something out new in the fall, and we'll be launching a single and a video for that and everything," Tim said (hear audio below). "So everybody can just stay tuned. We're still in the very early stages of it, but it's coming along quite well." King told Metal-Heads.de last year that the changes in the music industry in the last few years have made it harder for bands to survive. "It hasn't changed in the fact that you still have to write good music, you still have to play great live shows, you still have to do all the things that you always did in the past — you still have to do those things — it's just…. it's smaller. So in order for bigger bands, and bands that came out before, like us and your DEFTONES and things, for them to live the lifestyles that they've become accustomed to, they either have to tour consistently or work harder, or they have to do various things. And that's one thing we've learned — to go into different avenues and survive, because we still love doing SOIL and we still love our fans, our fans still love and come see us play, so we wanna keep doing it." SOIL's last album, "Whole", was released in August 2013 via Pavement Entertainment. Interview (audio):
