On this album I got a taste of something I really liked and decided to play it into the ground before sharing it with you. Probably a bad idea because I have a feeling we are going to be hearing these guys on the radio quite a bit in the coming months.
Hailing from Wichita KS, Soulicit offers up good clean hard rock on Parking Lot Superstar that produces anthem after anthem that will get you motivated to do anything. In my case it was drink some beer. The album opens with “Hell Yeah,” which is an arena style song that starts a journey to multiple influences found on the album. The entire album is a soundtrack for an adrenaline junkie!
We hear a little jazz, funk, soul, lots of metal, and a band that offers the total package in both vocals and instrumentals. In their limited time together Soulicit has worked with Buckcherry, Fuel, Sevendust, Halestorm, and many others. After every one hears this album drop on August 31st they will be quite busy adding to their festival appearances like Rocklahoma, SXSW, and Rockfest 98.
The reason I’m so excited about this band and this record is Soulicit represents the perfect go between band for hard rock and true metal fans. If you think this is a Nickelback clone that runs around throwing the horns think again. Soulicit gives you what they have and it just so happens they don’t have to pretend to be anything their not. The music stands on its own and will have metal fans banging their heads and hard rock fans stomping their feet.
How often to you come across a band that could open for Greenday one night and Black Sabbath the next? Trust me; it’s been tried, but rarely is successful. Soulicit could easily fill both spots and stand on their own with nothing more than good songwriting and talented musicians.
