Asked how the package came together, Soul Glo vocalist Pierce Jordan says, “The friendship between Zulu and Soul Glo wasn’t instantaneous, but we were excited to meet when we came into each other’s picture. It’s kinda like the Ninja Turtles and the Power Rangers meeting. Early on, we talked about doing a (nearly) all-Black Hardcore tour, so it’s exciting to see it come to fruition. We’ve also known Playytime for quite a long time, so it’s a really good mixture of friends from different regions of the country hanging out together.”

Soul Glo by Todd Cooper 

the Philly crew narrates their experience as Black American artists and their own personal turmoil with brute-force guitar riffs, hip-hop-influenced programming, and frontman Pierce Jordan’s larynx-shredding confessionals.” – Rolling Stone 

Though Soul Glo mix radical, actionable rhetoric, absurdist humor, and breathtaking vulnerability like almost no band before them…” – Pitchfork

Hardcore can sometimes be a formulaic thing, and it can also be an oppressively white thing, but Soul Glo push back hard against the idea that it has to be either.”- Stereogum

Soul Glo’s schedule has been non-stop since the release of their (2022) breakout record Diaspora Problems (Epitaph). Their songs confront the personal and the political with equal fury as vocalist Pierce Jordan howls about the inequities of the culture around him while offering a look at the conflict inside his head and heart. Fusing hip-hop, hardcore and punk, the Philly outfit are fearless in their approach and even more ruthless in their delivery, injecting their colorful narratives into predominantly white spaces. The overwhelming response to Diaspora Problems helped propel the band from respected underground status to landing top spots on the Best Albums of 2022 lists via PitchforkNew York TimesNPRStereogum and more, with Rolling Stone crowning it #1 out of the year’s metal releases. With multiple runs of the EU, UK and US under their belts already this year, they’ve made appearances at festivals such as Primavera SoundSXSW and Coachella, with Pitchfork and more still to come.
