Chicago-based alternative metal ensemble SOiL formed in 1997 around the talents of vocalist Ryan McCombs, drummer Tom Schofield, bass player Tim King, and guitarists Adam Zadel and Shaun Glass. They released their debut EP, El Chupacabra!, in 1998, followed by the full-length Throttle Junkies in 1999. Their sophomore release (Scars) found success both nationally and internationally through two strong singles, “Unreal” and “Halo.” It was followed in 2001 by an eponymous EP, and later in 2004 with re.de.fine. McCombs left the fold that year, eventually joining Drowning Pool. He was replaced by A.J. Cavalier on their 2006 debut for DRT, True Self. On October 20, 2009, the band released Picture Perfect, heralded by the single “Like It Is.”
