Soul Asylum

Grammy award-winning and multi-platinum selling rock band, Soul Asylum started as Minneapolis’ punk younger brothers to the Replacements and Husker Dü. Their 1992 breakthrough album, Grave Dancer’s Union, featured the international hits “Runaway Train” and “Black Gold” and “Somebody to Shove”. “Runaway Train” won a Grammy, and its music video brought nearly 2 dozen missing and exploited children and teens around the world home to their families.

Soul Asylum has released 12 original albums, with multiple live albums and assorted Greatest Hits collections. Hurry Up and Wait was released in 2020, to much fan and critical acclaim worldwide landing the band their highest Billboard Chart position since 1995’s Platinum-selling Let Your Dim Light Shine.

The current Soul Asylum line-up features Dave Pirner; lead vocals/guitar, Michael Bland on drums, Ryan Smith on lead guitar, and Wynston Roye on bass. Pirner, generally considered to be one of the great American songwriters, has also released his best-selling book, Loud, Fast, Words, an annotated collection of lyrics in 2020.
