Bangladeshi popular rock band 'Souls' is all set to release a new album after a long haul of five years. The album title has been finalized as 'Bondhu'. This upcoming album will consist of six new songs. The band members have informed that five songs have wrapped up recording. They will announce the launch date as soon as recording of the sixth song is done. The lead guitarist of Souls, Partha Barua, will release a solo album titled 'Mukhosh' soon. 'Bondhu' will be launched just after that.
Notably, the last album of Souls, titled 'Jam' was launched back in 2011. In 2003 and 2004 respectively, they released their ninth and tenth albums Tarar Uthan and To-Let. To-Let was the last album that sound engineer Mobin worked on before his death in a highway accident in Bangladesh. Their next album was Jhut-Jhamela, which was released in 2006.
Band Souls was established in Chittagong, and later moved to Dhaka. Current line-up of this squad includes Naseem Ali Khan, Partha Barua, Sk Ahasanur Rahman Ashiq, Md. Maruf Hasan Talukder and Meer Masum. Formed in 1970, Souls is one of the oldest pop bands of this country.
