Video Premiere: Soul Asylum “Supersonic”

This young Japanese macaque (Macaca fuscata) stole the iPhone of a tourist that wanted to take a closeup shot.

1st single from outstanding new album, out this week.

We’ve said it before, when we let you hear the track a few weeks ago, and now we’ll say it again: the veteran outfit Soul Asylum has a new album dropping March 18 via eOne Music, Change of Fortune, and it kicks serious fucking ass. That new track is also now the first single, which we are privileged to unveil the official video for “Supersonic”:

Change of Fortune has been three years in the making and the wait is most certainly worth it.  The first single “Supersonic” will have Soul Asylum loyalists happy to discover the group’s trademark ragged-but-right sound is still very much intact – clever lyrical turns of phrase, classic rock riffs filtered through punk rock energy, and themes that everyone can relate to. Change of Fortune is the sound of a band that has gone through good times, bad times, and every time in between… and has come out the other side as fresh and invigorated as when it all began in a basement in Minneapolis.


Incidentally, the band consists of David Pirner on guitar and vocals, Michael Bland on drums, Winston Roye on bass and Justin Sharbono on guitar. And they will be touring, starting this week at SXSW—where they will also be doing a set at one of the BLURT day parties, Friday the 18th at 4pm. Be there or beware!
