long time lurker of this site (great place to go for information) but first time poster. This topic got me to finally register
Can't wait for the weekend.... will be seeing them in Cleveland & Pittsburgh!
To Dave: The makeup of the band has changed a lot in the last decade (I believe Michael has been in the band since 2004, Justin & Winston since 2012). How has this changed things for you? It must be a much different group dynamic than it was 15 years ago.
To Dave Again: What are the chances we'll ever see another Dave Pirner solo record? (don't mean to sound like I'm knocking Soul Asylum, I'm not, but Faces & Names was a lot different than anything from Soul Asylum. For me "Different" = "Interesting" and in this case "Interesting" = "Good".
To Michael: Your resume is crazy impressive. You've been all over the map, in terms of artists that you've played with, and different styles of music. What was (is?) it about Soul Asylum that has you in what I believe is the longest running gig of your career?
To The band in general:
Any chance we see shows similar to the GDU tour from last year, but performing another album?
Would you consider adding a keyboard / piano into the shows again? There's a ton of material from the Soul Asylum catalog that would make great use of it (I'm thinking of "Ship of Fools" and "Ain't That Tough" in particular).
Any chance we're going to see a show in the Toronto area sometime soon? Driving over the border isn't that big a deal for me - but hitting up a show where I don't have to bring my passport would be nice
As other have also asked in this thread: Any chance of a B-Sides / Rarities type release?? While I did buy a copy, I will admit to being disappointed with "Welcome To The Minority". Thought that would be a perfect place for tracks like 'Waiting Is So Long', "James At 16", "On Way Conversation", "Little House On The Edge", and "Village Idiot".
Can't wait for the new album!
