SOIL vocalist AJ Cavalier has posted a new solo track, entitled "Do You Believe?", on his MySpace page.
Cavalier has been working on material for a solo album which he expects to release at some point in the not-too-distant future.
SOIL last year amicably parted ways with guitarist Shaun Glass due to "personal differences." The band will not seek a replacement guitarist but will remain a four-piece, with AJ Cavalier filling in on some of the guitar duties.
SOIL's latest CD, "True Self", was released in May 2006 via DRT Entertainment. The 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).
Following his departure from SOIL, Shaun will focus all his efforts on DIRGE, the new extreme metal project which he formed with THE DOOMSDAY SOCIAL drummer James Knight (ex-THE BLANK THEORY, CHACOPA) and A TEXAS FUNERAL vocalist Jermz.
According to Shaun, who previously played bass in the 1990s death metal act BROKEN HOPE, DIRGE's musical direction is "total fucking extreme metal in a very modern thrash style."
Lacey Conner, villainess co-star of VH1's hit TV show "Rock of Love" featuring POISON's Bret Michaels, conducted an interview with SOIL members Tim King and Adam Zadel at the Dean Guitars booth at this year's winter NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) show, which was held January 17-20 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.
