Soul Asylum and Meat Puppets, who both had MTV/major label success in the '90s following a handful of '80s records on indie labels (Twin/Tone and SST, respectively), expanded their recently-announced tour. In addition to the Brooklyn Bowl show on June 20 (tickets), the two bands will also play another NYC show on June 22 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for Bowery go on sale Friday (4/3) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (4/1) at noon. Updated dates are listed below.
Soul Asylum also announced that they're finishing work on the followup to 2012's Delayed Reaction. They're currently funding the album on Pledgemusic, and you can head to that link to check out the various reward options which range from a download of the new album ($10) to a free private concert anywhere in the US ($50,000). They write:
Leading up to the release of our album, we'll be giving pledgers an inside look. We'll share some of the new music and video clips you won't see anywhere else. Even better, we'll drop the album to pledgers only, days before the actual release!
We're very excited to share this new record with you and thank you for being a part of it.
Dave, Michael, Winston, Justin
