Electric Fetus

Soul Asylum was formed in Minneapolis in 1983 mixing tuneful but unrestrained punk, hardcore, 1970s rock, country and self-effacing kitsch. One early review described their sound as follows: some unholy mix of Kiss and Hank Williams thrown under the wheels of a runaway train. All elements contributed to the band being credited with a grunge precursor title, a claim often recited in comparisons between pre-Nirvana Minneapolis and Seattle bands.

Reviews:

Their breakthrough album Grave Dancers Union, featuring their Grammy Award-winning single Runaway Train debuted in 1992 and went on to sell over 3 Million copies. They followed this with the album Let Your Dim Light Shine in 1995 which went on to sell over 1 Million copies. Soul Asylum have contributed music to three Kevin Smith films, Clerks, Clerks II, and 1997's Chasing Amy (in which Pirner provided the score). Smith directed the music video for the song Can't Even Tell, which was featured on the Clerks soundtrack.

Dave Pirner is and always has been the driving creative force in Soul Asylum. Change of Fortune has been three years in the making and the wait is most certainly worth it. The first single Supersonic will have Soul Asylum loyalists happy to discover the group's trademark ragged-but-right sound is still very much intact clever lyrical turns of phrase, classic rock riffs filtered through punk rock energy, and themes that everyone can relate to. Change of Fortune is the sound of a band that has gone through good times, bad times, and every time in between... and has come out the other side as fresh and invigorated as when it all began in a basement in Minneapolis.
