Bob Mould announces new album: Silver Age

From Consequence Of Sound:

On September 4th, Bob Mould will release Silver Age, his debut release with Merge and his first studio full-length of new material since 2009′s Life and Times. Recorded alongside his current band of drummer Jon Wurster and bassist Jason Narducy, the ten-track effort channels the “punishingly loud, melodically sparkling pop/rock” heard on Mould’s previous efforts with Sugar, whose catalogue receives a facelift on July 24th with a slew of reissues also through Merge, as previously reported.

To support both the new LP and the Sugar reissues, Mould will hit the road this summer and fall for a slew of dates. With the exception of a few DJ performances, the majority of the tour will see the celebrated songwriter performing Sugar’s Copper Blue in full with another set featuring Silver Age material and past Hüsker Dü, Sugar, and solo anthems. Consult the full itinerary after the tracklist.
