SOILWORK Sign with Breaking Bands LLC


Swedish melodic death metal front-runners SOILWORK are pleased to announce their recent signing with Breaking Bands LLC for management! Breaking Bands LLC is directed and founded by the powerhouse team of Testament vocalist and co-manager Chuck Billy, Adrenaline PR CEO Maria Ferrero, and former MegaForce Records and Crazed Management owners Jon and Marsha Zazula.


Chuck Billy states, “I remember finding this band called SOILWORK while browsing on my computer and was hooked on them from the first listen. I soon became friends with them and wanted us to tour together with Testament. I am so thrilled to now be working with the band so many years later. I see great things to come in the near future. Let the good times roll.”


“It is my honor to work with SOILWORK,” adds Maria Ferrero. “They are underrated – to say the least – and I look forward to personally ensure that we get the word out to fans of hard rock and heavy metal for SOILWORK. Their music is inspiring and it rocks.”


Jonny Zazula adds, “Marsha and I have been intrigued by SOILWORK for many years. When they came to Breaking Bands LLC for us to manage them it made sense right away. Their last album release was as intense as their earlier offerings and we are excited to see what the future has in store for us.”

SOILWORK was spawned in Helsingborg, anno 1995 by guitarist Peter Wichers and vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid. The band released two albums before joining the Nuclear Blast roster, and subsequently toured aggressively in North America, Europe, Australia and Japan. The band’s unique blend of melodic metal developed at a staggering rate, most notably on the Devin Townsend produced Natural Born Chaos, the first SOILWORK recording to fully display Björn “Speed” Strid’s knack for majestic melodies. After releasing more successful albums (including 2005’s Stabbing The Drama) and adding keyboard virtuoso Sven Karlsson and drummer extraordinaire Dirk Verbeuren to the band, SOILWORK toured on Ozzfest alongside headliners Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden.


After a few line-up changes and several tours, SOILWORK spent eight months writing and recording The Living Infinite, the first double album in melodic death metal history.
