PLAYING ON THE MGM RESORTS GRANDVIEW STAGE 1:25PM TO 2:25PM
FIRST TWO TWIN/TONE ALBUMS SAY WHAT YOU WILL . . . EVERYTHING CAN HAPPEN (1984) AND MADE TO BE BROKEN (1986) RECEIVE EXPANDED REISSUES FROM OMNIVORE RECORDINGS OUT NOW
Soul Asylum has spent years on the road and has earned a reputation as a hard-working band that continues to deliver a staggering live show night after night. The band is fresh off the Tied To The Tracks Tour, named after the song from the band’s 1996 album Made To Be Broken, and select dates on The Rock n’ Roll Express Tour with Collective Soul and Three Doors Down. Next stop KAABOO DEL MAR on Saturday, September 15.
In addition to the summer dates, the band’s first two Twin/Tone releases, Say What You Will . . . Everything Can Happen (1984) and Made To Be Broken (1986), both originally produced by Bob Mould of Hüsker Dü, have been remastered and thoughtfully expanded by Omnivore Recordings.
The reissue of Soul Asylum’s debut, Say What You Will . . . Everything Can Happen, collects the original album, plus rare outtakes and demos from the band’s early years, including an unreleased song and many long-out-of-print tracks. The packaging provides an array of never-before-seen photos, artwork, and hand-written lyrics from Pirner’s collection. The Made To Be Broken set contains 15 bonus tracks, nine of which are previously unreleased. Both reissues were co-produced by Twin/Tone Records co-founder and Replacements manager Peter Jesperson, who first signed Soul Asylum, and Grammy® winner Cheryl Pawelski, with remastering by Grammy® winner Michael Graves.
Also available and out now, Legacy Recordings’ Live From The Vaults series never-before-released, limited edition vinyl of Soul Asylum’s hard-driving performance at the legendary Austin, TX venue Liberty Lunch from 1992.
