Bob Mould announces Silver Age details and fall tour

Bob Mould will release Silver Age, his first album of all-new studio material since 2009’s Life and Times, on September 4 on Merge.

The new record features Bob’s current band – drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk) and bassist Jason Narducy (Verbow) – on 10 brand-new Mould compositions in the punishingly loud, melodically sparkling pop/rock vein of the Sugar catalog, which will be reissued by Merge on July 24.

Silver Age track listing:
1. Star Machine
2. Silver Age
3. The Descent
4. Briefest Moment
5. Steam of Hercules
6. Fugue State
7. Round the City Square
8. Angels Rearrange
9. Keep Believing
10. First Time Joy

Where the current run of “Bob Mould Plays COPPER BLUE” dates commemorates the 20th anniversary of the 1992 release of Sugar’s debut Copper Blue, with Bob and the band playing that record in its entirety, Bob’s fall dates supporting Silver Age will be more elaborate affairs: Copper Blue will still be played front to back; however, an additional set and encores mixing the new Silver Age material with Hüsker Dü, Sugar, and Mould solo classics will complete the evening.
