“Souls Extolled are looking to become heroes to a generation where genres make little difference... This is classic rock, interjected with punk, and grunge, all distinct, yet all working to create the unique vision of Souls Extolled.” - Eduard Banulescu
Souls Extolled is an Austin-based psychedelic rock trio-- think Ozzy having a lovechild with Rancid, on acid! Their music has been featured on hundreds of radio stations nationwide and has been written up in Broadway World, Indie-Music.com, and KUTX 98.9 to name a few. In 2022 the young band leapt onto the national scene as their latest 2 albums received significant airplay across the US, along with their first national tour rocking 25 American cities from coast to coast! With their tribe of rockers 'The Restless Kind' growing faster than ever, Souls Extolled is primed and ready to kick ass for the The Restless People in 2023!

This is a truly quirky and fun song, and an ode to the gritty and pervasive rock of the previous decade."
