SOiL Members Emerge Unscathed After Bus Crash
The road can be a scary place, as the members of SOiL found out Sunday night as they were traveling to their next gig. As vocalist Ryan McCombs reports, several of the band members awoke to the sound of their driver yelling “Hold on” as their bus veered off the highway.
The band had just finished playing for a packed house at the Route 20 Outhouse in Wisconsin and were en route to Des Moines, Iowa, for a show Monday evening when their vehicle strayed from the road. McCombs is happy to report that there were no serious injuries, though they did have quite a scare. Check out his post on the matter below:
At 4:33 AM the last thing you want to hear in your bunk is a combination of the driver yelling "HOLD ON!!", the sound of the bus flying off of the highway and The Jake (tour manager) screaming like a 12 year old girl at a Justin Beiber concert.. I find it interesting that as everyone sits around the stranded bus talking about what was going through their heads all I can remember is gripping my pillow like it was going to save me from whatever was about to occur and thinking "....huh...." No serious injuries.. Just a bus full of arseholes that for the most part are happy to be alive and now just making fun of each other for their responses.. We really are a bunch of fu*kwads... #soil_official #soil #saladtongs #ryanmccombs37 #cornbeefhashtag #ryanmccombs
SOiL finished out their current tour leg in Des Moines and as those who follow McCombs Instagram account can see, the rocker is in a celebratory mood after coming out of the bus adventure unscathed. He loaded up on White Castle burgers to mark the occasion.
With the North American run complete, SOiL are getting ready to head overseas for tour dates in the U.K. and Europe in support of the Whole album. See where they’re playing here.
