Minneapolis rockers Soul Asylum announces new U.S. tour dates with Cracker kicking off on July 14 in Marietta, OH at People’s Bank Theatre. Tickets will be on sale Friday, June 9 and can be purchased at: www.soulasylum.com

The band spend most of 2016 crisscrossing the country in support of Change of Fortune, Soul Asylum’s eleventh studio album, which was released in mid-2016.   The dozen-song set embodies the band’s trademark balance of rocking abandon, infectious melodic craft and raw-nerved emotional depth, boasting a compelling set of Pirner compositions.

Soul Asylum’s current lineup teams founding singer/guitarist Pirner with guitarist Ryan Smith, bassist Winston Roye and drummer Michael Bland. “I would say, without reservation, that my band is probably the best band on the planet,” Pirner asserts, adding, “That always gets me in trouble, but it’s not because of me; it’s because of Michael and Winston and Ryan.  It’s incomprehensible to me that the elements have fallen into place the way they have, it’s driving me nuts how much I love this band.”

“People who feel disenfranchised tend to identify with Soul Asylum,” 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.”
