Chicago heavy rockers SOIL will be rejoined by their original lead singer and founding member Ryan McCombs (on loan from the band DROWNING POOL) for their upcoming U.K. co-headlining tour with PUDDLE OF MUDD. McCombs, along with Tim King (bass) and Adam Zadel (lead guitar), will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the “Scars” album by performing it in full.
