Soul Asylum

The second day of the 2022 Beale Street Music Festival got under away in the early afternoon under humid cloudy skies. The threat of rain persisted throughout the day but held off until the evening hours. During day two, there were so many impressive musical moments that festival-goers had to tailor their choices to their own personal preferences. The Zynn stage became the Hip-Hop stage for the second day.

Soul Asylum are more than ready to re-start their live shows after their 2020 best- selling tour in 15 years was cut short due to the Pandemic lockdown orders. The band played their last full, live date on March 11, 2020 at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles. Like all tours that month, they got the news of the lockdown while waiting for soundcheck in San Diego and were forced to return to Minneapolis, cutting short their 25-date tour with six shows left hanging in the balance. 


Grammy award-winning and multi-platinum selling rock band, SOUL ASYLUM used their downtime during the pandemic to create new acoustic versions of a few songs from their critically acclaimed latest release, Hurry Up and Wait. The digital recordings were completed in the midst of the COVID-19 safer-at-home orders when the band found themselves home, after their U.S. tour was cut short. Lead singer, Pirner, got together with guitarist, Ryan Smith and began streaming Friday night Quarantine Sessions from his living room.


Grammy-award winning, multi-platinum selling rock band, SOUL ASYLUM is nearing the release of Hurry Up and Wait, out on April 17, 2020 via Blue Élan Records. In addition, the band will release a limited edition 180 Gram LP + Bonus 7 inch of the album for Record Store Day. The exclusive release features a cover of "Rhinestone Cowboy" on the A Side (a staple from their live show), and an acoustic version of "We 3" on the B-Side.
