SOIL Confirm Singer's Departure

Chicago's SOIL have issued an official statement confirmed the departure of singer Ryan McCombs (as exclusively reported by BLABBERMOUTH.NET earlier today). The statement reads as follows:

"We are sorry to report that due to family obligations, Ryan McCombs has decided to move on from SOIL. Though we are very saddened by this sudden development, we respect his decision to be with his family at this time. The band and everyone involved wish him and his family all the best. SOIL is currently auditioning new vocalists. Updates will be posted on"

SOIL, who recently split with J Records, have started writing material for the follow-up to this year's "Redefine", tentatively due sometime next year.

SOIL's J Records debut, "Scars" (2001), has sold 224,973 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Its follow-up, "Redefine", has shifted 72,499 units to date.
