Soul Asylum has been inspiring an incredible level of passion for their music since 1981, when the band, initially known as Loud Fast Rules, formed in Minneapolis. The band's raucous live sets and early releases on the hometown indie labelTwin/Tone—including the albums Say What You Will, Made to Be Broken and While You Were Out—earned it a loyal fan base and widespread critical acclaim.

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 (3x platinum) and 1995's Let Your Dim Light Shine. Grave Dancers Union featured the international hits "Runaway Train," which won a 1994 Grammy as Best Rock Song, and "Black Gold," while Let Your Dim Light Shine (platinum) spawned the hit "Misery." The band went on hiatus after 1998's Candy from a Stranger, during which time Dave Pirner released his first solo effort, Faces & Names. Soul Asylum returned to action in 2006 with The Silver Lining, Delayed Reaction six years later and in 2018, Sony Legacy released a previously unheard live album, Live from Liberty Lunch, Austin, TX, recorded in 1992.

Local H, the iconic alt-rock duo known for their blistering live shows and pioneering the two-piece band set-up, is at the top of their game more than two decades after they first burst onto the music scene. Frontman Scott Lucas, who covers both guitar and bass (through an extra pick up in his guitar), and drummer Ryan Harding have enjoyed a resurgence in recent years, buoyed by global touring along with the release of some of their most critically acclaimed work to date.

Local H's first major release was 1995's Ham Fisted, but it was their follow up album As Good As Dead that positioned the band as one of the elites in what was a groundbreaking decade for rock music. With multiple radio hits on the album, "Bound For The Floor" emerged as a generational anthem and remains a staple on playlists around the country over two decades later. Their widely praised 1998 concept album Pack Up the Cats, produced by the legendary Roy Thomas Baker, solidified Local H as a leader in the genre and the albums that followed were reflective of not only the band's definitive character, but as well their relentless effort to give their audience as much of themselves as possible. While recipients of numerous accolades over the years, Local H has always kept the focus on their fans, which can be seen by the awe-inspiring and often times daunting tour schedule the band has kept up year after year.
