Alt-rock veterans Soul Asylum are back with their first album in six years, titled Delayed Reaction.
The multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winners are reinvigorated with a new line-up, founding members Dave Pirner and Dan Murphy bringing in Tommy Stinson (ex-Replacements, ex-Guns N Roses) and former Prince drummer Michael Bland.
The band recorded and self-produced Delayed Reaction in Los Angeles, New Orleans and their hometown of Minneapolis. It’s the follow-up to their 2006 album The Silver Lining.
Pirner explained the process in a press release: “It feels like approaching it as an album and a thing that has a sequence, and a thing that is a piece of work in itself is almost an archaic process… Honestly, it’s more organic. Even though you’re using some of this newer technology, the fact that you’re doing it yourself is what made it take so long and the process unique, this time.”
Delayed Reaction will be released on 429 Records though Universal Music Australia on July 20.
