Soul Asylum: David Pirner (vocals, guitar); Dan Murphy (guitar, background vocals); Karl Mueller (bass); Grant Young (drums).
Recorded at Nicollet Studios, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
For a band who seemed like goof-offs in their earliest incarnation, Soul Asylum had a pretty impressive work ethic, and While You Were Out was the second album they released in 1986, arriving not quite 11 months after Made to Be Broken. While You Were Out wasn't the dramatic, creative leap forward that Made to Be Broken represented over their debut, 1984's Say What You Will . Everything Can Happen, but it certainly showed they were headed in the right direction, and it was the strongest of the three long players they cut for the Minneapolis-based Twin/Tone label. For sheer energy, Soul Asylum rarely sounded as sharp and fully engaged as they did on While You Were Out; Dan Murphy and Dave Pirner's guitars were locked in tight and generated an impressive level of firepower that fused melody with crushing attack, and drummer Grant Young and bassist Karl Mueller were at the top of their game, giving the music a strong, roiling bottom end that gave the music a firm foundation while pushing it forward at the same time. The mix doesn't always favor Pirner's lyrics, but his vocals were clearly growing in strength and confidence, confirming his rock star potential, and producer Chris Osgood and engineer Steve Fjelstad may have lacked Bob Mould's name recognition (the H?sker D? co-founder was at the controls for Soul Asylum's first two albums), but they gave the recordings a no-nonsense power and clarity that fit them just right. 1988's Hang Time would move Soul Asylum up to a major label and it's arguably the band's finest hour, but in many respects, While You Were Out sounds like a dry run for that triumph -- there's a bit less focus and a little more slop than necessary, but While You Were Out left no doubt that there were few bands in the American underground who could match them. ~ Mark Deming

Daredevil Records use The Planet app powered by Shopify to neutralize your shipping emissions and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Daredevil Records has committed to donating the most amount of money possible from your order to offset C02 emissions.  

This includes funding innovative solutions such as direct air capture and mineralization, and a small portion of nature-based carbon removal.

These funds companies such as 44.01, Carbofex, CarbonBuilt, CarbonCure, Charm Industrial, Climeworks, DroneSeed, Grassroots Carbon, Heirloom Carbon, Loam, Noya, Pachama, Planetary, Remora, Running Tide, and Sustaera.

Carbon Removal Process

Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.

For example, if a truck or a plane that delivers your shipment releases 1 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and you are subscribed to the Planet app, then Shopify ensures that 1kg of CO2 is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away using solutions and technologies in Shopify Sustainability Fund.

There is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal technologies in different stages of development. These technologies include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture and mineralization.

How Shipping Emissions Are Calculated

The Planet app combines data from our store with industry data and peer-reviewed models to estimate how much CO2 your shipments release into the environment. Because the Planet app makes sure that CO2 shipping emissions are removed entirely, all values that are used in the data models are rounded up.

Review the following table to learn more about the which data is used to determine shipping emissions:

Factor

Primary value

If primary value isn't available

Weight

Weight of the shipment

An average shipment weight

Distance

Distance traveled according to the tracking data

Straight-line distance between the origin and destination address, multiplied by an uncertainty factor of 1.5

Type of transportation

Truck or plane carbon emissions, determined by speed and distance

Truck emissions

To estimate your emissions, the Planet app uses order tracking data associated with the tracking number assigned to the shipment. If the tracking number isn’t available or the shipping carrier isn’t supported, then the Planet app multiplies the estimated emissions by an uncertainty factor of 1.5. The uncertainty factor helps make sure that all your emissions are removed. If any data is inconsistent or missing, then the Planet app uses a reasonable maximum value instead.

For example, suppose that you ship a package from Boston to New York. The straight-line distance is 305.94 km, but the shortest road route is around 350 km. If tracking data is available, then the Planet app uses the exact distance traveled.

However, if no tracking data is provided, then 305.94 km is used in the base calculation, and the resulting emissions would be multiplied by 1.5. This calculation accounts for variations in the route, such as distances traveled from post offices and distribution centers, and the route taken by the courier to deliver the package to your customer's door.

Considerations for using the Planet app

Review the following considerations for the Carbon Neutral Shipping Planet app:

  • The models and estimates aren’t exact, but the Planet app overestimates your emissions to make sure that they’re entirely removed. 
  • The Planet app removes only carbon (CO2) emissions that account for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation. Other emissions such as CH4, N2O, and GHG aren’t removed.
  • Orders that are shipped by sea transportation (we do not ship any orders by sea) don't generate the data required to accurately calculate emissions. Instead, industry-accepted alternative methods are used to calculate emissions.
  • The Planet app currently focuses on addressing emissions from shipping-related transportation.
