Soulidium - Phantom in the Wire
Case Study

Case overview

Soulidium, hailing from Tampa, Florida, USA, came together as an American hard rock band in 2006. The current lineup includes frontman Michael McKnight, guitarist Braeden Lane, bassist Bobby “Fuzzy” Farrell, and drummer Eric Dietz. Their debut album, “Children of Chaos,” was released in mid-2007 when they were operating with their original roster. Over the years, they’ve shared stages with prominent acts such as Sevendust, Alice in Chains, Limp Bizkit, Alter Bridge, Puddle of Mudd, Hellyeah, Black Light Burns, and Nonpoint.

The Brief

After a period of relative inactivity following their initial album release, they embarked on the journey to release their second album, initially titled “Fly 2 the Sun” around mid-2011. Ultimately, it saw the light of day in late 2015 under the new title “Awaken.” Unfortunately, the band disbanded in 2017, but in a surprising turn of events, they regrouped in 2022. Currently, they are diligently working on a forthcoming album titled “Revolution,” which is slated for release in 2023.
