Soul Asylum has been inspiring a great level of passion since 1981, when the band formed in Minneapolis.  The band’s raucous live sets and early releases on the hometown indie label Twin/Tone earned a loyal fan base. Soul Asylum’s indie success led to the band entering the major-label mainstream, achieving a platinum-level commercial breakthrough with 1992’s Grave Dancers Union. The release featured the international hit “Runaway Train,” which won a 1994 Grammy as Best Rock Song. The band’s most recent release, Change of Fortune, was Soul Asylum’s eleventh studio album, and its first for Entertainment One Music (eOne Music).

“People who feel disenfranchised tend to identify with Soul Asylum,” lead singer Dave Pirner observes.  “I’ll look out at the crowd and see people singing along with my songs of frustration and insecurity, and the irony is not lost on me.  There’s a part of me that’s never gonna fit in, but I love being around people who love music, and I’m very loyal to the idea of whatever Soul Asylum is.  The future is bright, everything is good, and if there’s something in this record that can make people feel like things are gonna be OK, then it’s mission accomplished.”

Twenty-two years ago in 1994, 38-year-old school teacher Robert Pollard & his merry band recorded Bee Thousand in a Dayton, Ohio basement on a 4-track cassette recorder. This improbable rock classic became an enormously influential album; Spin and Pitchfork have called it one of the best records of the ’90s, and Amazon picked Bee Thousand as #1 on their list of the 100 Greatest Indie Rock Albums Of All Time. An amazing live band with a rabid following, the Washington Post called GBV “the Grateful Dead equivalent for people who like Miller Lite instead of acid!”

After 22 albums, 24 solo records and countless side projects, Pollard has recorded a new GBV album by himself and has assembled an exciting new GBV line-up for touring: Doug Gillard (guitar), Bobby Bare Jr (guitar), Mark Shue (bass) and Kevin March (drums).

The year was 1975 and on the pre–disco music scene in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, cover bands ruled. Outside of a handful of bars and campus coffeehouses that comprised the local folk/blues scene, working musicians had little choice: If you wanted a paying gig, you had to play other people’s hit songs.

But when The Suicide Commandos played their first gig in September 1975 at the Blitz Bar in downtown Minneapolis, they changed everything. Here, suddenly, was a real “alternative rock” band –a stripped–down three–piece comprised of guitarist Chris Osgood, bassist Steve Almaas, and drummer Dave Ahl (all of whom sang), whose sets combined original songs with rarely–heard pre–punk nuggets. And every tune was delivered with the raw energy that once had fueled the fabled Twin Cities garage–rock scene of the 1960s, when bands like the Litter, the Underbeats, and the Trashmen ruled the roost.

From these humble beginnings grew one of the most fertile and productive scenes of the American indie/alternative rock explosion of the 1980s and ‘90s. The Suicide Commandos’ pioneer­ing efforts paved the way for the Suburbs, the Replacements, Hüsker Dü, Soul Asylum, Babes in Toyland, and so many more.

The Suicide Commandos roar back with their first studio album in 39 years; Time Bomb released on May 5th, 2017.
