Legacy Recordings’ Live From The Vaults series uncovers rare and unreleased concerts on vinyl, featuring classic bootleg-inspired jacket design with unique, artist-specific outer wraps (OBIs)! This never-before-heard set features Soul Asylum’s hard-driving performance at the legendary Austin venue Liberty Lunch, just months after the release of their breakthrough album Grave Dancers Union.This 17-song setembodies the band’s trademark balance of rocking abandon, infectious melodic craft and raw-nerved emotional depth, boasting a compelling set of Pirner compositions.

See Soul Asylum on select dates on The Rock & Roll Express Tour this summer with Collective Soul and Three Doors Down. Produced by Live Nation, the amphitheater outing will kick off July 6 in Atlanta, GA. Tickets are on sale now.

Initially known as Loud Fast Rules, the band’s raucous live sets and early releases on the hometown indie label Twin/Tone, including the albums Say What You Will, Made To Be Broken and While You Were Out earned them a loyal fan base. Soul Asylum’s indie success led to the band entering the major-label mainstream with 1988’s Hang Time and its 1990 follow-up And The Horse They Rode In On and achieving a platinum-level commercial breakthrough with 1992’s Grave Dancers Union and 1995’s Let Your Dim Light Shine.  The band went on hiatus after 1998’s Candy from A Stranger, during which time Pirner released his first solo effort, Faces & Names.  Soul Asylum returned to action in 2006 with The Silver Lining and released Delayed Reaction six years later. Three and half decades down the road from the band’s indie-punk origins, Change Of Fortune came in 2016co-produced by the band and longtime studio collaborator John Fields.

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.”
