Bob Mould’s new album Silver Age, out September 7 on Merge, is the acclaimed singer-songwriter and Sugar/Hüsker Dü founder’s first album of all-new studio material since 2009’s Life and Times. Inspired and informed by Bob’s recent shows opening for Foo Fighters as well as his shows commemorating the 20th anniversary of Sugar’s 1992 debut Copper Blue in which he performs that album in its entirety,
Silver Age presents ten new Mould compositions in the punishingly loud, melodically sparkling pop/rock vein of the Sugar catalogue.
Featuring Bob’s live band of drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk) and bassist
Jason Narducy (Split Single), Silver Age ranks among the best work of any phase
of Bob Mould’s expansive career. With tracks like opener “Star Machine,”
the cathartic title track, “The Descent,” the reflective “Round the City
Square,” the celebratory “Keep Believing,” and the somber simmer of closer
“First Time Joy,” Silver Age is rife with future classics set to take their
rightful places in Bob’s live set list alongside staples from Sugar,
Dü, and his earlier solo work.
