Soapkills recorded three albums, respectively entitled Bater (2001), Cheftak (2002) and Enta Fen (2005), which all came out on small Lebanese labels. Their music quickly became the soundtrack to the vibrant, young arts scene which developed in postwar Lebanon, and the band gradually acquired an emblematic status.
Soapkills stopped operating when Yasmine moved to Paris, where she first teamed up with Mirwais to create the Y.A.S. project, and then worked on her debut solo album, Ya Nass (2013). Zeid remained in Lebanon, where he took part in various projects, and currently produces several artists.
Yasmine and Zeid have now joined forces to curate a definitive Soapkills compilation album, which will come out on CD, vinyl and digital in May, together with the digital re-issue of the three original Soapkills albums.
