Soul Asylum promo 2016

Soul Asylum have premiered the video for new track “Supersonic” ahead of the release of their new album.

The band will release parent LP Change Of Fortune on the 18th of March via eOne Music.

A statment accompanying the news promises that Change Of Fortune “…feels like both a fresh start and a classic Soul Asylum record. All the elements are there – the classic rock riffs filtered through punk rock energy, Dave Pirner’s soulful yet ragged vocals, clever lyrical turns of phrase, and themes the common man can always relate to.”

Soul Asylum’s career began with several indie releases on Minneapolis’ Twin/Tone that garnered them attention from a few major labels. After a period with A&M, the band signed to Columbia Records and released its groundbreaking album Grave Dancers Union, which included the Grammy Award winning “Runaway Train.”

Check out the video for “Supersonic” below.

Clerks soundtrack to get vinyl treatment for 30th anniversary

Clerks Post Logo

In celebration of its 30th anniversary, the soundtrack to Kevin Smith’s cult classic film Clerks is to be released in a vinyl edition for the first time.

The original mix of music and dialogue from the film will be preserved across three sides of two LPs, with the fourth side featuring an etching. The set is scheduled for release on the 11th of November.

The album features cuts from many of the leading lights from the heyday of alternative rock, including Alice in Chains, Girls Against Boys, the Jesus Lizard, Bad Religion, Soul Asylum, Corrosion of Conformity, Stabbing Westward and more besides.

According to Rolling Stone, legend has it that licensing the music for Clerks cost more than the production of the film itself. The movie helped make Alice in Chains’ 1992 song “Got Me Wrong” a hit, and the Kevin Smith–directed clip for Soul Asylum’s “Can’t Even Tell,” which closes out the movie, ensured that it reached No.16 on Billboard’s alternative song chart.
