Soil’s tour bus flew off the highway

Posted by on April 14, 2015

Soil vocalist Ryan McCombs has a lot to be thankful for. After enduring a stroke last November, McCombs has now survived a bus crash, too. The incident happened this past Sunday, after their April 12th show in Des Moines, Iowa with Psychostick.

From Ryan McComb’s Facebook page:

“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…”

Thankfully the accident didn’t end in tragedy, and everyone is alive. Soil has a UK tour coming up in May, as support for Coal Chamber, along with American Head Charge and Dope.
