Management: SOIL Are Not On IN FLAMES/SEPULTURA European Tour

SOIL's management company, The Firm, has refuted a posting on the web site of Germany's Metal Hammer magazine which shows that the band have been confirmed as the support act for IN FLAMES on their upcoming European tour (a trek which is being co-presented by Metal Hammer). The Firm's statement reads as follows:

"An Internet post went up today stating that according to Germany's Metal Hammer magazine that we had been confirmed as the opening act for IN FLAMES on their upcoming European tour beginning in mid-March. Unfortunately this is not true and we don't want any of our fans to be misled. If any new tours are confirmed you can find details of those tours [on the band's official] website."

As previously reported, SOIL have set "True Self" as the title of their new album, due in April via DRT Entertainment. A track from the album, entitled "Fight for Life", is available for download on the band's official web site,

SOIL's follow-up to 2004's "Redefine" was recorded and mixed at Bomb Shelter studios in Los Angeles, California with producer Ulrich Wild (STATIC-X, TAPROOT). The upcoming CD will be the group's first to feature Cavalier, who previously fronted the California-based DIESEL MACHINE (also featuring ex-DAMAGEPLAN frontman Patrick Lachman on guitar). The band's original vocalist, Ryan McCombs, has since joined the Texas act DROWNING POOL.
