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).
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!”
