Soil announce European winter tour


Soil have announced a European winter tour.

The Chicago outfit will take to the road with support from Saliva and Sons Of Texas, with a fourth opener to be revealed in due course.

Bassist Tim King says of the tour: “This time we wanted to tap into some cities that have been asking us to play over the years and we haven’t gone to before. We are looking forward to seeing some new places and making some new friends this time around.”

Soil frontman Ryan McCombs adds: “Every time we get home from a UK and European tour, I’m ready to go back. It feels like it’s been way to long since we’ve gotten to spend time with our UK and European Soil family.

“I need to find me a place to hide in York, England – my favourite city – so I can just stay there after this next tour wraps up.”

Soil’s last studio album was 2013’s Whole.
