Soul Asylum has spent years on the road and has earned a reputation as a hard-working band that continues to deliver a staggering live show night after night. The band will perform at Harrah’s Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas Sept. 1.
The band is currently bringing their trademark balance of rocking abandon and infectious melodic craft on the Tied To The Tracks Tour, named after the song from the band’s 1996 album Made To Be Broken, the tireless quartet can also be found on select dates of The Rock n’ Roll Express Tour with Collective Soul and Three Doors Down.
In addition to the summer dates, the band’s first two Twin/Tone releases, Say What You Will . . . Everything Can Happen (1984) and Made To Be Broken (1986), both originally produced by Bob Mould of Hüsker Dü, have been remastered and thoughtfully expanded by Omnivore Recordings and are due out July 20.
The reissue of Soul Asylum’s debut, Say What You Will . . . Everything Can Happen, collects the original album, plus rare outtakes and demos from the band’s early years, including an unreleased song and many long-out-of-print tracks. The packaging provides an array of never-before-seen photos, artwork, and hand-written lyrics from Pirner’s collection. The Made To Be Broken set contains 15 bonus tracks, nine of which are previously unreleased. Both reissues were co-produced by Twin/Tone Records co-founder and Replacements manager Peter Jesperson, who first signed Soul Asylum, and Grammy winner Cheryl Pawelski, with remastering by Grammy winner Michael Graves.
Also available and out now, Legacy Recordings’ Live From The Vaults series never-before-released, limited edition vinyl of Soul Asylum’s hard-driving performance at the legendary Austin, TX venue Liberty Lunch from 1992.
Soul Asylum has been inspiring an incredible level of passion for their music since 1981. The alternative rock band’s raucous live sets and early releases have earned widespread critical acclaim. Soul Asylum’s indie success led to major-label mainstream hits with “Hang Time,” “And the Horse They Rode In On,” a platinum-level commercial breakthrough with “Grave Dancers Union” (3x platinum), later “Let Your Dim Light Shine,” and more.
