Although synths and neon clothing were staples of the '80s, alternative band Soul Asylum stuck to their guns with their guitar-driven grunge sound and ripped jeans. 30 years since after their debut, the band still knows how to rock a crowd, as Dave Pirner's unique, raspy voice carries their powerful music to new heights and stirs emotion in audiences nationwide. Whether they're playing '90s cult classic "Runaway Train" or treating fans to newer tunes, Soul Asylum always deliver a vigorous live performance, and fans can expect more of the same as they hit the road for the Summerland Tour 2014 with fellow rockers Everclear, Eve 6, and Spacehog.
Formed in the early '80s by high school friends Dave Pirner, Dan Murphy, and Karl Mueller, Soul Asylum got their start performing local shows in their home state of Minnesota. After gaining a strong following in the area, they released their 1984 debut Say What You Will...Everything Can Happen, embarking on the first of what would become many rigorous headlining tours. In their three decades together, Soul Asylum have released ten albums, two reaching Platinum certification, as well as two No. 1 singles. As a defining rock band of the '90s, Soul Asylum will bring a healthy dose of nostalgia on the road with them in 2014 as they treat fans to hit-filled sets on their highly anticipated Summerland Tour.
