Soul Asylum The Start:
Soul Asylum initially formed in the early ’80s under the name Loud Fast Rules when vocalist/guitarist Dave Pirner was still in high school, cutting their teeth as part of the celebrated Minneapolis local music scene.
The band entered the major-label mainstream with 1988’s Hang Time and its 1990 follow-up, And the Horse They Rode In On, before achieving a commercial breakthrough with 1992’s triple platinum Grave Dancers Union. That album spawned several international hits, including “Runaway Train,” which won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Song, and “Black Gold,” and made Soul Asylum alternative radio and MTV staples.
In the ensuing decades, the band which also includes drummer Michael Bland, lead guitarist Ryan Smith and bassist Winston Roye has released a steady stream of albums, including 2020’s Hurry Up And Wait. The latter reflects Soul Asylum’s usual eclectic approach: thrashing songs indebted to punk (“Hopped Up Feelin'”) and classic rock (“Got It Pretty Good”), folk-influenced pop-rock (“Silly Things”), and gorgeous jangle-pop (lead single “If I Told You”).
Soul Asylum History:
With raucous live sets and early releases on the hometown indie label Twin/Tone including the albums Say What You Will, Made to Be Broken and While You Were Out earned it a loyal fan base and widespread critical acclaim.
Indie success led to the band entering the major-label mainstream with 1988’s Hang Time and its 1990 follow-up And the Horse They Rode In On, and achieving a platinum-level commercial breakthrough with 1992’s Grave Dancers Union (3x platinum)and 1995’s Let Your Dim Light Shine. Grave Dancers Union featured the international hits “Runaway Train,” which won a 1994 Grammy as Best Rock Song, and “Black Gold,” while Let Your Dim Light Shine (platinum) spawned the hit “Misery.” The band went on hiatus after 1998’s Candy from a Stranger, during which time Pirner released his first solo effort, Faces & Names.
Soul Asylum Recent Times:
Returning to action in 2006 with The Silver Lining, Delayed Reaction six years later and in 2018 Sony Legacy released a previously unheard live album, “ Live from Liberty Lunch, Austin, TX” recorded in 1992.
