Soul Asylum release their new single "If I Told You"

I know what you're thinking. Soul Asylum... I've heard of them? And you'd be right!

Formed in 1981, the band have consistently released new material every few years, though they will usually be known for their huge single "Runaway Train" which reached the top 10 in many countries, including number 1 in Canada's RPM Chart.

They've undergone several line-up changes over the years, but that hasn't prevented them from consistently releasing a new studio album every few years. Still fronted by founder member and songwriter Dave Firman, the rest of the band consists of Michael Bland (former drummer with Prince), Winston Roye (bass) and Ryan Smith on guitar.

Their last album, "Change of Fortune" - their 11th studio album - was released in 2016. Their brand new single, "If I Told You" was released on 17th January this year, the result of the past few years focus on writing great new material. It's classic Soul Asylum, gravelly vocals, great, meaningful songwriting and beautiful alt-rock music all perfectly combining to produce an instantly memorable hit.

Soul Asylum's brand new album "Hurry Up & Wait" is due to be released on 17th April.
