Southern rockers from Finland, Soul Shine Society are back with their sophomore release, 'Back Where You Belong'. Reminescent of Lynyrd Skynyrd & 38 Special...Good old Southern Rock with an evolutionary twist...Refreshing lyrics delving into the same old areas yet fresh enhanced by deeply talented musicians.

Every song on 'Back Where You Belong' will have you toe tapping your way down the road or thinking about your southern upbringing with songs like, "Break The Chain", "Ain't Gonna Tell You Twice", "Hell Train" and "Reasons". Soul Shine Society taps into that fine line between country and blues rock where Southern Rock lives. The songs are well written, straight to the point, with no fluff. Oh, your not from the south? You will be by proxy once you give this one a listen. You definitely get the idea that the band didn't just write these songs, they lived them. Soul Shine Society is a perfect blend of rock and country driven by pure talent from all angles of the band. Great vocals, great guitar, great bass and great drumming that is never overbearing, boring or reptative.
