Redefine (also styled as Re.De.Fine) is the third album by the Chicago-based rock band Soil. The album was released on March 23, 2004, via J Records. This was the band's final album with the vocalist Ryan McCombs before he left Soil in October that year. Redefine was also Soil's last release through J Records after the band was dropped following the BMG/Sony merger.

The album peaked at #78 on the Billboard 200 chart[1] and included the single and video for "Redefine" which charted higher than any previous single. The track "Pride" was used in the video game Madden NFL 2004. According to the album booklet, the track "Remember" was dedicated to the memory of Dave Williams.

Touring[edit]

Soil toured for a year in promotion of Redefine which included a European schedule with Drowning Pool and Damageplan. Touring ended in late 2004 when Ryan McCombs suddenly left the group. This forced the cancellation of future shows including a mini tour with Sevendust, a festival with Damageplan, and a UK tour. They were also scheduled to perform with Damageplan on December 10 but did not due to the murder of Dimebag Darrell two days earlier.
