Four gifted musicians.. one unique sound.. Soap delivers a kinetic blend of diverse songwriting, and virtuosic ability. It's obvious to anyone with ears that a new day has come; not just for Soap, but for rock and roll itself.
Soap is an experimental rock fusion jam band. Soap is a cleansing agent made from the salts of vegetable or animal fats; Money offered as a bribe; Street names for gamma hydroxybutyrate; Soap is like a good feeling; and like a good feeling you can't help sharing it, pass it along.
â€œLatherâ€ is Soapâ€™s second full length CD release. Offering eleven dynamic songs, it is a truly inspired blend by one of today's most gifted bands. â€œLatherâ€ is a unique album that values the unknown areas of improvisation as much as the construction of towering compositions. On â€œLather,â€ listeners are treated to lush, polyrhythmic tones that crackle with the brainy togetherness of jazz and the freewheeling attitude of rock. With hints of funk and fusion, Soapâ€™s sound takes on a life of its own. Guitar solos are alternately ferocious and restrained, keyboards break the surface of the music and plunge back into its depths, and the drums and bass provide a constant backdrop of eclectic rhythm.
The CD was recorded at Apocalypse Cow, in Montgomery, IL, and mixed and mastered by Bill McElroy at Slipped Disc in Ashland, VA. Three singles â€œOut of Luckâ€, â€œPenguinâ€, and â€œMiles Dankisâ€ from â€œLatherâ€ was released for radio airplay in March 2006
Soap will embark on a national 42 date summer concert tour to promote â€œLatherâ€ starting in Late May and finishing in August, 2006.
