Chicago's SOIL has issued the following update:

"Unfortunately we had to cancel our short run of dates with ILL NINO due to scheduling conflicts. Make sure you still check out the shows as ILL NINO are an awesome band and some dear friends of ours. We hope to do a full tour with them sometime again in the future."

"As for SOIL dates, to make it up to you we are going to do a two week headline run in March. This will be the last chance to see SOIL for the 'True Self' album as we will be hitting the studio after this run of dates to start recording a new album. Supporting us will be BOBAFLEX and THE AUTUMN OFFERING. Dates will be announced soon."

SOIL recently 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 vocalist 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."

Im disappointed in this. I was lookin forward to seein these dudes in concert. Hopefully I'll be able to catch them on their tour in March. And I like the fact that they are touring with Bobaflex. Those guys bust their asses on the road and they put out some good music.
