First time on vinyl since original U.S. & U.K. pressings!

Reissue co-produced by Twin/Tone co-founder Peter Jesperson and Grammy-winning producer Cheryl Pawelski

Soul Asylum first hit the Minneapolis music scene in early 1981. Core members Dave Pirner, Dan Murphy, and Karl Mueller met at local punk rock shows. Coming up in the shadow of formidable bands such as Hüsker Dü and The Replacements, bands they were all big fans of, was daunting but, ultimately, it inspired them to make a name for themselves.

Soul Asylum stood out immediately because of their work ethic and smart, punky hard rock sound. They made four records for hometown label, Twin/Tone Records, before moving on to the majors; first A&M, then Columbia where they scored two platinum albums and won a Best Rock Song Grammy for "Runaway Train." Originally produced by the Suicide Commando's Chris Osgood, this reissue is co-produced by Twin/Tone Records co-founder and Replacements manager, Peter Jesperson and Grammy-winner and Omnivore Recordings co-founder, Cheryl Pawelski.

This fresh vinyl pressing of Soul Asylum's third album, While You Were Out is the first since its original 1986 U.S. pressings (and a 1987 U.K. pressing) and has been restored and mastered by Grammy-winning engineer, Michael Graves at Osiris Studio and cut by Chris Muth at Taloowa.
